maruça rodrigues


Biography Maruça Rodrigues was born in the city of Fortaleza, which is located in the state of Ceará, at north-east of Brazil, from a family with native-brazilian origins. Since her childhood, Maruça was devoted to music. Thanks to her unmistakable voice, she created an ecliptic and interesting combination of sounds able to involve and fascinate the most heterogeneous audience. Her musical way is influenced by sounds originated from the meeting of different ethnical traditions and cultures of her vast country. In 1977 she begun the study of the viola instrument and she started singing in choral music co-operating with many artists and musicians from all over Brazil. In 1991 she takes up her career as a solo singer with the concert "Mundana", achieving immediately a successful result from critics and public in Brazil. After15-year study of vocal techniques, camparing her style with various musical languages, passing by afro-Brazilian rhythms getting to classical and contemporary sounds, Maruça arrived in Italy in 1992. In1998 her first CD titled "UTUKUTU" was produced by Mr. Valeria Semplici (also producer of the Black Box group) and distributed by Materiali Sonori – Italy. In 2001 came out "VIA JANEIRO CARLINHA" in two different compilations ( HAFA CAFE Compiled & Mixed by DJ Marco "Polo" Cecere, produced & Distributed by Family Affair Distributions Srl, and GLOBAL HOUSE distributed by Self - Italy). The solo "VIA JANEIRO CARLINHA" is produced by Marco "Polo" Cecere for Jet Lag production. In 2002, the record company IRMA RECORDS has produced and distributed the new CD "O RITMO MISTURADO" where Maruça and her musicians (BANDA FAVELA) are collaborating with artists who are very well experienced and very well known in the world of Brazilian music. Through her way of singing and dancing during concerts and performances she is able to transmit to people the colours and traditions of her beautiful Brazil. You must experience. Banda Favela Great success in Japan; in their 1st tour, A Banda Favela filled Motion Blue in Yokohama with pure Brazilian sound from Minas, percussive Samba beats and a new approach from Italy. One of the highlights of their live performance is improvisation using many kinds of percussions from all over the world, heavy drums, guitar and bass, female and male unison vocals and melodious accordion. At the end of their shows, they played covers of Brazilian classics like Tristeza. Their performance made promoters and punters very much satisfied. From dance floors in Tokyo, the “Banda Favela fever” was transmitted to Europe, England, U.S.A., countries of Asia and came back to Italy. Now the tunes in Banda Favela’s album became repertories of DJs. Following this movement, compilation albums have taken up their tunes and remixed all over the world.
