Vanessa Da Mata at Montgomery College Cultural Arts Center
Latin Grammy Award winner Vanessa da Mata is a Brazilian singer/songwriter, with hits such as, "Ai Ai Ai," "Boa Sorte/Good Luck," "Nao Me Deixe So," and "Amado." She is a powerful performer who represents the energy and vibe of Brazilian popular music. She received global exposure with her duet/collaboration with American singer-songwriter Ben Harper on "Boa Sorte/Good Luck." She now seeks to widen her audience to the United States, and this September, she will embark on her debut U.S. tour.
This fall, Vanessa da Mata will promote her latest DVD special, "Caixinha de Musica," performed live in concert at the Casa Natura Musical in Sao Paulo and released in May. Accompanied on the DVD by guitarist Mauro Pacheco, she revisits old favorites and introduces new original compositions in a variety of genres, including MPB (Musica Popular Brasileira), samba, pop, and R&B.
On Thursday, September 14, she will perform with her band in the Washington, DC metro area at the Montgomery College Cultural Arts Center in Silver Spring, MD at 8:00PM.
