Carol Saboya

It has always been a musical environment. Carol Saboya, Antonio Adolfo's daughter, was raised surrounded by inspired chords, scribbled scores, and songs being born. When she was eight, she had her voice recorded for the first time. She spent three years studying singing in the United States, taking part in the Grammy winning CD by Sérgio Mendes Brasileiro (1992), and in some of her father’s performances.
Carol's expected first solo work came in 1998. Dança da voz, which awarded Carol 1998's best new female singer prize from the Sharp Award "Prêmio Sharp." The following year, she jumped into Tom Jobim's work and recorded the album Janelas abertas, with guitarist Nelson Faria. In 2000 she participated in the Brazilian Music Festival (Festival da Música Brasileira) promoted by TV Globo (Brazil).
Her next albums include Sessão Passatempo, Presente, two releases for JVC Japan (Bossa Nova and Nova Bossa), two albums with her father (Antonio Adolfo and Carol Saboya Ao Vivo Live and Antonio Adolfo and Carol Saboya La e Ca/Here and There) and another recent release in Brazil, Chão Aberto. On top of that, she performed in the US and won the Tabaíba de Oro award as best female vocalist in a Festival in Spain.
