live projects The mix is the way let‘s celebrate diversity!
Célia Mara makes music with a smile - flexible, ironical, sensual, rebellious and fresh. She is an engaging front woman, giving her soul to the audience - dancing, grooving, entertaining. She never fails to impress with her strong voice, the amazing vocal improvisations, which she quickly switches over to beatboxing and sometimes even ascend to trumpet solos. She plays her acoustic guitar with glamour, brazilian rhythm and fun. As a songwriter, she focusses on playing her own songs - labeled as „crackers“ or „a 100% legitimate hit“ by prestigious Songlines Magazine. At the root of her music lies a marriage between traditional Brazilian Music, the rich Latino culture and European underground instrumental grooves. The lyrics, sung in Portuguese, English, German, Spanish and French, are urban poems that sing the voice of migrations and provide communication without any borders. Célia Mara is tipically Brazilian… and Viennese: she disrespectfully surfs between musical styles and rhythms, plays effortlessly with Retro-Brazil, Tango and traditional Afro-Brazilian grooves, mixes Nova MPB and Samba with Funk, Reggae, Balkan-folk, Glamour Rock and HipHop… for sure, she‘s totally invoved in the flow of the music. in 2010, Célia Mara has great cooperations going on:
