Andrea Canta - ist eine international etablierte Sängerin und Komponistin mit deutschen Wurzeln. Sie studierte Musik in London, Kuba und Brasilien, immer mit der Absicht, die lokalen Besonderheiten der Musik zu durchdringen und diese mit den eigenen Wurzeln zu verweben. Daraus entstand eine Zusammenarbeit mit Musikern, Komponisten und Musikproduzenten aus den Bereichen Jazz, Latin, Reggae, EDM und Popmusik.

 

Besonders stark beeinflußt hat sie die Zeit in Kuba und Brasilien. Fasziniert von der Kultur, der Sprache, der Musikalität und Herzlichkeit der Menschen, entstanden interkulturelle Projekte. In Havanna nahm sie eine EP mit Musikern des bekannten Orchester "NG La Banda" auf. Und in Brasilien entstand das dritte Album der Musikerin, die CD „JANDAIA". Die Musik dieses Albums, besteht hauptsächlich aus brasilianischen Rhythmen wie Samba, Bossa Nova, Baião, Xote und Tambor de Crioula, mit Einflüssen aus Jazz & Pop.

 

Durch ihre prägnante Stimme und die enorme Bandbreite ihres musikalischen Repertoires, bestehend aus eigenen Kompositionen, Jazz, Funk, Soul, Pop, brasilianischen und kubanischen Liedern, trat sie schon bei zahlreichen Festivals, Konzerten und Events in verschiedenen Ländern auf.  „Sprache ist Musik“ sagt Andrea. Authentisch und mit Leidenschaft für Sprachen, performt sie auf deutsch, englisch, portugiesisch und spanisch.

Nascida em Alemanha, Andrea Canta estudou música na Grã-Bretanha, Cuba e Brasil, onde fez parcerias com músicos e compositores nos estilos jazz, música latina, reggae, dance e pop. Morou em Londres no período de 1987 a 1991 e no Brasil, especificamente na capital maranhense São Lúis, de 2011 a 2014, para onde retornou em 2016, 2018  e 2019 para o lançamento do seu terceiro disco "JANDAIA" 

As músicas do CD "JANDAIA" são uma mostra de ritmos tradicionais do nordeste brasileiro - baião, xote e tambor de crioula - dialogando com o jazz, blues, soul e world music. “E não pude resistir ao samba e à bossa nova. Para cada música escolhi o idioma que me inspirou naquele momento. Os parceiros se tornaram amigos e em muitos dias nos sentamos juntos, compondo e cantando. Eu estava na companhia de músicos talentosíssimos e compositores criativos que me inspirarão para sempre”, afirma Andrea Canta.

Para performances ao vivo, ela misturara composições autorais e canções conhecidas com um vasto repertório de jazz, funk, soul e pop music, além de músicas consagradas do cancioneiro popular brasileiro e cubano. Andrea canta em quatro idiomas: alemão, inglês, português e espanhol.
