Brazilian vocalist Vanessa Falabella has a repertoire as great as her charm and charisma, singing everything from traditional samba and bossa nova, to jazz, MPB (Brazilian popular music), soul, and R&B. She has performed at New York’s top venues including SOB’s, Town Hall, The Supper Club, Cafe Wha, Joe’s Pub, and Zinc Bar. She has performed and recorded with Marcus Viana, Cyro Baptista, The Rain Forest Band, César Camargo Mariano, Sadao Watanabe, Gato Barbieri, Hiram Bullock, among others. She opened for Bob Dylan’s Brazilian Tour, performed at the Taste of Jazz Festival in Miami, and has traveled the world as a featured performer. In Brazil, she has recorded soundtracks for some of the famous Brazilian television “novelas” as well as commercials including a Brazilian presidential campaign.
While in New York, Vanessa developed both a Brazilian-Latin and American following. Her Brazil Nights at Cafe Wha attracted a large audience, playing to packed houses every Monday in Greenwich Village for over 3 years.
Today, based in Brazil, Vanessa has released a couple of project with Sony BMG, called Vibe, produced by Marcelo Lima and Guillermo Moane, the latest one being a tribute to Cartola, produced by Marcelo Rocha.
