Carolina Brandes

Carolina Brandes, vocalist, pianist, composer, arranger and lyricist, a Berklee College of Music graduate,
has grown up between the artistic environments of Berlin, Rome and NYC.

Her music is hard to classify;
attempts have been Crossover, Avant-garde Funk, Electric Jazz…

It is a fusion; to be though intended in the most authentic and radical sense of the term,
namely as an artistic synthesis of a polyglot creativity that incorporates naturally the concept of contamination
blending a vast variety of musical styles ranging from Jazz to Funk, from Gospel to Flamenco, from R&B to Rock, from Scat to Rap.

The cultural and musical cosmopolitism is also evident by the lyrics:
collages in english, german, spanish, french, italian & portuguese, never banal & gifted with passional strength of commitment.

Though well aware and respectful of the Jazz tradition, Carolina's music is a fierce, audacious, dramatically playful jump towards new musical horizons!
