approach to Brazilian Diaspora music.
„„Bastardista“, wouldn’t the
Célia Mara sings, plays, composes and arranges. She is a bandleader and a solo artist, a 21st. artist have invented it,
century singer - songwriter, a real Brazilian groove lady, a jazz singer full of emotion, a screa- there wouldn’t be a wording
ming rock star, a sensual seduction, a funky entertainer… And she’s always carrying a message for «Gesamtkunstwerk»
for peace and social justice with her … Célia Mara.“
(Anna Bianca Krause,
Célia Mara’s charismatic voice, her strong compositions, the eclectic, but typical- Funkhaus Europa, D)
ly Brazilian mixture and the edgy electro-arrangements pushed her latest albums Santa
Rebeldia and bastardista among the headliners of „Global Bricolagistas:

„Global Bricolagistas - Los de Abajo, DJ Dolores, Manu Chao, and

Mariam and Amadou, Zuco 103, Celia Mara, Ojos de Brujo and Zuba were
just a few of the names that grabbed our attention in a year when the
world said no to globalization and yes to global music culture mash up.“
Damian Rafferty (Fly- global music culture, UK)

Célia Mara is certainly one of the most impressing latin front-ladies

living between Brazil & Central Europe… Her passionate singing has
led Healer Selecta, of the United Kingdom’s reason2b, to label her
as “the best Brazilian international underground artist.” For sponta-
neous live sessions, Célia’s bastard sound attracted as great artists as
Joe Zawinul, Konstantin Wecker, Amparo Sanchez (Amparanoia),
Olodum, Think of One, Magou & Dakar Transit or Reggaeman Lazzo

let‘s celebrate diversity! The mix is the way
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 prestigi-
ous 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:
