Kenia has been characterized by many as one of the most excitingly unique performers you can hear today. Born in the exotic city of Rio de Janeiro, she reflects the pulse and intensity of her native Brazil through diversified style. Her deep tone and excellent choice of repertoire have been cited by Dana Black, of the Daily News, New York, as a “sure sign of expertise”. Jazztimes magazine has described her as “a wonderfully expressive vocal instrument that throbs with sultry intensity, it’s low key, yet ultra bright”. Kenia will be featured during the month of April, National Jazz Appreciation Month, singing the songs of great Brazilian composers, Jobim, Gil and many others
