Minhas Raízes (My Roots) is a mixture of styles, sounds and colors of Brazil. This eclectic and original project aims to bring together the Brazilian music and Jazz.
Nice Brazil, of Brazilian origin, is the initiator of this project, wich presents jazzy arrangements at Bossa-Nova, Samba, Choro, Baião and own compositions. Including other multifaceted feeling such as the sounds of the big cities Sao Paulo, Rio and Minas Gerais; My Roots is an experience not to be missed.
This is my first Album production with my own compositions. With my own words and meanings. A moment of inner growth. I speak sincerely about love in the title “When I Saw You”.
I was able to say goodby to my deceased father with all my love with the song “I Loved You”. I celebrate my ancestors in the title “My Roots”. In the title “For an There” I bring the question of time, life and death.
The CD My Roots is an intimate moment. A thankful moment to the universe.

… for music began in my childhood in São Paulo, my hometown. With the music of the Radio and major festivals. With the protest and revolt against the military dictatorship, present in the poetry of composers such as Chico Buarque, Geraldo Vandré and Joao Bosco. With MPB (Brazilian Popular Music), with Bossa Nova. And last but not least the great interpreters of Brazilian music, Jazz and Pop music.
