ABOUT

MARTIE

Oração de mãe Menininha

“On this album we created a blend of European and Afro-Brazilian atmospheres. With Claudio I share an affinity in our search for sound transparency that you hear in the European jazz.” – Martie

BIOGRAPHY

Martie is a Brazilian based vocalist/pianist. Born in the Netherlands in 1982, she is influenced by jazz and passionate about the rich diversity of Brazilian music. Martie gained a Bachelor of Music at the Codarts Conservatory (Rotterdam 2006) and Master of arts at the Fontys Conservatory (Tilburg 2008), majoring in jazz vocals and composition specialising in Brazilian music.

With her distinctive voice, Martie creates a fusion between European sonority and Brazilian roots. She easily transits from introspective Brazilian Popular Music to smooth cadenced Sambas, and makes a unique combination of the lucidity of sounds and the rhythmic intensity of Brazilian music.

During her first visit to Brazil in 2010, Martie recorded a special program, performing 1,5 hour for TV Globo – Ceará, and performed in several festivals in the country. Since moving to Brazil Martie has been delving deep into a serious study of the Brazilian repertoire. The result of this work is the CD “Quem te viu” which she recorded in collaboration with famed Brazilian pianist/producer, Claudio Dauelsberg.
