ANAADI sounds the echoes of an urban, provoking, ethnically mixed world. “NOTURNO” is the first part of a trilogy inspired by what the artist calls three states of mind: Purgatory, Heaven and Hell. Among the 11 songs, 9 are written by ANAADI, one of them alongside the great Roberto Menescal. The other 2 are special covers of Chico Buarque’s and Nelson Cavaquinho’s songs.
The album is nominated in four categories for the 19th LatinGRAMMY Awards: Recording of The Year (for “É Fake”), Best New Artist, Best Contemporary Pop Album in Portuguese and Best Album of Recording Engineering.
Starting as a Jazz and Brazilian Music singer, ANAADI collaborated in many different projects with Jazz musicians and brazilian orchestras, performing in Music festivais and Art Expositions like “Lençóis Jazz Festival”, “Creole Connections : New Orleans meets Brazil”, “Bienal do Mercosul 2018”, “Cine Ceará Movies Festival”, “Canoas Jazz Festival”, “Jazz às Pampas Festival” and “Festival Di Rio Grande do Sul a Paris”. In 2013, ANAADI became one of the most proeminent contestants of her home state in history of the TV show “The Voice Brasil”. Such a success lead ANAADI to become a weekly TV host as a local commentarist for the 2014th edition of the same TV show.
In 2018, ANAADI made her first tour in the USA, performing in New Orleans and New York City.
As a singer and composer, ANAADI collaborated with some great artists like Rick Wakeman, Roberto Menescal and Max de Castro, and aroused admiration from names like Ivan Lins and Carlinhos Brown. In 2018, she featured iconic Brazilian composer Guinga in two songs of his next album, recorded with orchestra and released by the record label Bell’Anima.
For the Movies, ANAADI wrote and produced “ARTE DAS MUSAS?”, a documentary film about Women in Music. As an actress, she played Maria Rosa in Maurice Capovilla’s “Nervos de Aço”, a musical long film inspired by the work of the great Lupicínio Rodrigues. As a Music director and composer, she made the soundtrack for “Madrepérola”, a short cut about fat women, beauty and self esteem.
