Multi talented songstress Leny Andrade, takes listeners on a jazz flavored musical journey. From the sensual sounds of Bossa Nova from her native Brazil to the mystery of the Bolero learned in her adopted home in Mexico, all featured on the new CD, "ALMA MIA."
"To describe Ms. Andrade as both the Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald of Bossa Nova only goes so far in evoking a performer whose voice seems to contain the body and soul of Brazil... like everything else she performs, it seems to well up from the center of the earth." (Stephen Holden, New York Times)
Ms. Andrade will be accompanied by pianist Klaus Mueller, bassist Sergio Brandao and drummer Helio Schiavo
