Susan Pereira

Vocalist, pianist, percussionist, composer and arranger Susan Pereira, a New York native, has been one of the most versatile musicians on that city’s Brazilian music scene since 1983. While deeply rooted in traditional Brazilian styles, her broad background in jazz and world music has enabled her to develop a distinct musical personality. Fluent in Portuguese, she is a singer who blends a silky, rich tone with superior vocal technique and is a particularly skilled lyric interpreter and scat singer. Susan’s percussive piano style is enhanced by her mastery of complex Brazilian rhythms and her original Brazilian jazz compositions are a popular part of her performances.

”Truly amazing!! The real deal.” —Kenny Barron

“With the incredible output of jazz CDs by new artists in the first decade of the 21st century, it is a challenge for someone to stand out with a debut recording. But vocalist/pianist/composer Susan Pereira, gifted with a beautiful voice, terrific keyboard chops and a knack for arranging, is the exception to the rule . . . Highly recommended!” —Ken Dryden, All Music Guide
