PIANIST AND COMPOSER
She is a study in the power of contrasts – delicacy and driving rhythm, introspection and joyous dance, elegance and playfulness. With this vast artistic vocabulary, pianist and composer Heloísa Fernandes reveals a Brazil largely unknown even to Brazilians. Her sources of inspiration are often folkloric and ancient, but what she makes of them is modern and unique. Hers is a singular voice in the new generation of 21st century Brazilian musicians.
