Title: Beginning
Artist: Sanders, Alissa
Label: CD Baby
UPC: 845121044614
Genre: Jazz

Alluring songstress Alissa Sanders ties worlds together with her eclectic, multilingual mix of jazz, samba, and bossa nova, linking two countries with profound, prolific musical traditions: Brazil and the United States. Born in Hollywood, California, Alissa took some of that hometown glamour with her to Brazil, where she lived for 13 years, studying music under mentors such as Neto Costa (vocal coach to Gilberto Gil and Ivete Sangalo), honing her vocal skills and perfecting the fusion of Brazilian rhythms with their American cousins like jazz and roots blues. Through a soft, intimate, enchanting sound that traverses borders, Alissa embodies the magical, musical place where culture, art, tradition, and spirit come together. Currently splitting her time between São Paulo and Los Angeles, Alissa considers Brazil to be her spiritual home, especially the country's musically-rich Northeast. It was also in Brazil where she recorded her first album, Beginning, in 2011, with jazz and Brazilian standards in English and Portuguese. SESC Theatre appearances, presentations at events in São Paulo and Santa Catarina compliment her live performances at Barreto, famed piano bar at São Paulo's luxurious Fasano Hotel, where she has sung for Coldplay's Chris Martin and socialite Paris Hilton. With a voice reminiscent of a young Ella Fitzgerald and a cosmopolitan look and style all her own, Alissa has been featured on Brazil's Rede Globo television network-the world's fourth-largest-and has recorded in India with electro-ambient musicians Espiritualistas and in Los Angeles with pianist Ron Bishop. In 2012, she will be touring the tropical-jazz flavored 'Beginning' in the United States with her band, an international group of top Brazilian jazz musicians: Michelangelo Pagnano (guitar), Marcos Romera (piano), Sidiel Viera (bass) and Rodrigo Digão Braz (drums/percussion).
