Nilza Costa is a brasilian singer and author born in Salvador (Bahia), with a heart beating for african ancient rhytms, transfigured through her singing in an extremely original artistic language: traditional forms of brasilian music culture such as Candonblé, Capoeira, Samba, Maculelé and “Cantigas de Roda” are sifted by an alternative attitude that stands out. Nilza Costa is an exponent of the revolution of people who found the way of emancipation thanks to music and spirituality too
Her personal and artistic life, enriched by many live exibitions and prestigious collaborations is condensed in her debut album, Revolution, Rivoluzione, Revolução, a fascinating travel through the best World Music that taints Afro Jazz with Samba, Blues and hypnotic voodoo atmospheres. Nilza’s deep and dark voice guides us through ten tracks, starting from Obanixà, a prayer-invocation to one of the divinities of afro-brasilian cults
