Flávia Bittencourt is one of Brazil’s most highly-praised emerging singer-songwriters and actresses. Her cultural roots are present in her choice of repertoire, which flows naturally through her compositions and can also be felt in the music of songwriters from around the world that she chooses to sing.
Having rocketed to national fame after one of her songs was featured by a popular soap opera, Bittencourt has toured throughout Europe and has taken her interpretations of traditional Brazilian folk music as far as Africa. Despite favoring the work of Maranhao composers such as Josias Sobrinho and Zeca Baleiro, she is not restricted by genre and freely collaborates and pursues diverse musical projects.
Bittencourt has caught the attention of established artists and composers such as Dominguinhos, Renato Braz, Quinteto em Branco e Preto, Luiz Melodia, and conductor Laercio de Freitas, and she has shared the stage with Zeca Baleiro, Luiz Melodia, Alcione, Geraldo Azevedo, Dominguinhos, and The Golden Age, among others. She has released four albums Sentido, Todo Domingos, No Movimento, and Leve; her fifth recording, A Life Story, will be released in fall 2018.
