Luciana Souza

2002 and 2003 Grammy nominee Luciana Souza is one of Brazil's leading singers and interpreters, while at the same time establishing herself as one of the most exciting songwriters of the time. Hailing from Sao Paulo, Brazil, she grew up in a family of Bossa Nova innovators who performed and wrote numerous hit tunes for stars like Joao Gilberto and Elis Regina. Her early childhood was influenced by the frequent jam sessions and weekend visits of stars of the day such as Milton Nascimento and Hermeto Pascoal.

Her work as a performer transcends traditional boundaries around musical styles, offering solid roots in jazz, sophisticated lineage in world music and an enlightened approach to classical repertoire and new music. Ms. Souza has appeared and recorded with renowned jazz musicians including Danilo Perez (on two Grammy nominated albums), John Patitucci, Hermeto Pascoal, Maria Schneider, and Kenny Wheeler among others.
