Camilla Inês BIO

About

Singer and songwriter, Camilla Inês is appointed by the Diário de Pernambuco newspaper as an expressive Brazilian interpreter of Jazz-Bossa.

 

Since 1998 she has been dedicating herself to the study and research of Jazz, Bossa Nova, Samba and other genres of Brazilian music.

 

She independently produced her first album "Jazzmine", which was released in 2011 and was pre-selected in 2012 to compete for the Brazilian Music Award, the most prestigious music award in Brazil.

 

Currently, the CD "Jazzmine" is in the play list of several Brazilian and international radios.

 

After the generous invitation of Roberto Menescal to compose the lyrics of one of his songs, Camilla Inês initiates new and unpublished partnerships in compositions with Menescal himself and composers like Simone Guimarães, J. Evaristo Neto and Tico de Moraes.

 

Already had the pleasure of sharing the stage with some icons and highlights of Brazilian music like: Roberto Menescal, Helio Delmiro, Maestro Spok and Brasilia Symphony Orchestra, Coro do Orfeão de Leiria (Portugal).

 

In 2015, Camilla Inês won the international Professional Music Award as the best executive production of her newest album "The Rhythm of Samba". Which is featured in several radios abroad (Japan, United States, Canada, Netherlands, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Peru, Argentina, Puerto Rico and others). The CD participates in the play list of many other radios in Brazil.

In addition to performing in Brazil in 2017, Camilla Inês performed a tour in Portugal singing and telling "The History of Samba-canção", which was a great success.

 

In 2018, Camilla Inês released the single "Vamos Dançar Um Bolero", by composer Herbert Pereira, showing her versatility when interpreting this beautiful song with Latin charm. Who hears this beautiful music can't stand still.

In 2021, Camilla Inês connects Brazil and Portugal in her first original EP. Produced by Latin Grammy winner Swami Jr., “Gotas de Oceano” reveres female freedom with poetry and philosophy.

The first difference between this in relation to the previous works of the Pernambuco-Brazilian singer (Jazzmine, from 2011, and The Rythm of Samba, from 2015) is that it is entirely made up of original compositions, composed amidst the setbacks caused by the coronavirus pandemic. coronavirus.

It was during a season in Portugal, in 2019, that Camilla found inspiration to start composing. She returned to sort things out in Brazil with plans to return to Europe, but ended up being prevented from resuming her project there due to the social isolation imposed by the pandemic.

And it was in isolation, in Brasília, that she conceived "Gotas de Oceano", in which she positively surprises by exposing skill and versatility in the art of composition. Known as an interpreter in forays into jazz and samba jazz, the artist greatly expands her universe on this new album.

If Camilla Inês is not a skilled instrumentalist, as she says, the singer has a privileged musical ear in her favor.

This allows her to transpose the richest influences of MPB into her compositions. The song "Morena" could be part of Luiz Gonzaga's repertoire; João Donato “baixa” on the velvety bossa “Vã Filosofia” (the track that comes closest to the singer’s previous albums); the gentle swing of "Sereia" takes us to navigate Dorival Caymmi's maritime-musical universe.

But "Gotas de Oceano" makes an impact right from the start with the pop and dance feel, a bit funk/soul, of "Contra-o-Ponto", in which Camilla reflects on the individual's framing of social coexistence. Also in the pop and reflective line, "Tudo É Fugaz" appears as one of the most beautiful tracks on the album.

More intimate, the delicate "Gotas de Oceano" (which gives the EP its title) and "Leiria" (composed when the artist was in the Portuguese city) sound to our ears like affection, more than necessary in these thorny times — although the entire album is a true relief for the moment we are going through.

Finally, it is fair to mention that, in addition to Camilla's visible talent as a composer, the quality of "Gotas de Oceano" is guaranteed by the team of collaborators. Starting with the precious production by the experienced Swami Jr. (who made arrangements, played guitar, acoustic guitars, electric bass, keyboards, programming and even performed a duet with her on the vocals of Vã Filosofia).

And the presence of Mestrinho's accordion, in "Morena", and the Grupo Samba de Coco Raízes de Arcoverde, in "Sereia", and the beautiful graphic design by Érika Azuma and Rodrigo Disperati (Estúdio Collecta) help to give "Gotas de Ocean" the configuration of the small great work that it is.
