The beginning of her carreer showed the influence of Bossa Nova brazilian style.
But the newage style starting in 1995 came to stay together with the instrumental style of music.
Now a days the trance mix style brought her to the creation of a new style named Overpop.
She also wrote five musicals with libretto in newage style and participated in five musical collections with other international artists.
She is an independent artist and she produces the great majority of her musical work in her Home Studio.
Her music has been promoted in musical and internet magazines, spiritual guides, and musical/shopping sites.
FAN CLUB reviews and releases selected - 1) News in internet world music genre in brazilian sites - "Anaya confirms the power of Internet to promote artists": Anaya is a good example of the power of Internet in promoting an artist.
Anaya used to disseminate her work as an independent artist in internet.Then one day she was discovered by the label Spinrecords from California that immediately offered her to signup a contract, giving her now a respectable discography with 21 albuns launched in the Usa and in Europe.
2) The music entitled "Tedeum" dedicated to the angels, to God and to the enlightned Being in ourselves is having so much acceptance by the public that the label Spinrecords decided to make an album entitled "Tedeum" which has been among the Top 10 of Spinrecords since april 2000.
This is a musical review by Justin Garcia: So, you had a bad day at work.There was an accident on the highway.
It took you twice as long to get home in the rush hour commute.Ok, so you finally make it home, you plop down on your coach.Now what? What do you do to relax? If it's a Jack and coke, that's fine; whatever does the trick.But try something healthier.Listen to Anaya's CD, Tedeum.
Close your eyes and get soothed by the new age style that permeates the six tracks.Escape the corporate world (this is a great CD to bring in the office) and much like the Star Trekkers, get beamed to another planet.You will be transported to resplendent and rich fields of flowers.
Your mind will feel at ease on an out-of this-world landscape.Babbling brooks will make you forget about the bills you have to pay and other mundane and petty tasks that sometimes overwhelm us.
Anaya is a Brazilian artist and an intelligent one at that.
She is a Fullbright scholar from Syracuse University.Her musical education began with piano at age eight, and then with guitar at age 13.Her many years of music composition, arrangement, and production work translate well into Tedeum.Oh yeah, this is a great soundtrack for Yoga also.Relax.Leave this world for a while.When you come back from the Anaya experience, you'll be more prepared to tackle life's challenges.
