Adriana Giordano, Brazilian Vocalist and Producer Making Space to Get Lost in the Music Adriana’s life growing up was filled with music from her father’s country, Uruguay, her mother’s country, Italy, and the country she was born and raised in, Brazil. She was immersed in dance for her youth and didn’t pick up singing until later in life. Her first exposure to singing was through a choir, then a rock garage band, and then an improve garage band. She sand with Abrace,, an all female a cappella group for a time. One of the highlights of singing for Adriana is when she is “lost in the music;” transported to a place away from the present during improvisational singing. She feels like she found her way back into her passion again in 2010 and began singing professionally in 2011. She realized there is space for Brazilian music - there is a need for something different, including Brazilian jazz, contemporary music, and other styles. She sings with Encanto, a multi-ethnic, female-led seven-piece, world pop music group — a combination forró, samba, and choro-inspired originals and reimagined covers of classic Brazilian hits. She has learned that the voice either needs to be in front or in the middle, but never underneath. With Brazilian music, the lyrics describe the challenges of life, so story telling is just as important as the rhythm of dance. It’s not about the loudness. Adriana produces a Latin/Brazilian/Caribbean festival in Seattle. The Seattle Latin, Brazilian, & Caribbean Festival is held at the Royal Room each July. Look for the Facebook page. Adriana defines “Latin” in that sometimes Brazilians feel they are not Latinos - that they are “other.” But because of the language roots in the Latin languages, the rest of the world does view them at Latino. Looking forward, Adriana feels like it is time to focus on her own career and voice. She wants to improve her breathing and take care of things that have been neglected. Adriana doesn’t dream of fame, she dreams of doing well and sounding good. Music is for the audience.
