In fact, the little girl quickly becomes sensitive to Brazilian tempo and rhythm. Beginning the piano at the age of 7, she finds herself six years later as the leader of a band who wins first prize in a local contest. Music has become Tania Maria’s muse. She tries, in vain, to distance herself from music, but ends up by giving in to this insistent “calling” and decided to dedicate her life to music. At first, she began performing in bars and nightclubs. She travels the world, beginning in Paris, where she records various albums which gets her noticed on an international level, and she signs on with Concord Records. This is a very good collaboration since “Piquant”, the first album recorded under this label, earns her the ‘Golden Feather Award’ presented by Leonard Feather, a famous jazz critic. At this point, her success has an achieved a level where she no longer needs to prove herself. She spreads her exceptional talent as a pianist and unique singer to the 4 corners of the world. She participates in the most prestigious jazz festivals where she receives each time the most beautiful of all awards: the public’s admiration. In 1985 she is nominated for the “Best Jazz Vocalist of the Year” at the Grammy Awards. Tania Maria is available for concerts.
