Album Notes
Born into a musical family, Fernanda’s mother is the renowned Brazilian singer Telma Costa, and her aunts renowned composers Sueli and Lisieux Costa. Following in these footsteps, Fernanda began her career as a singer in 1997, performing clubs in Rio de Janeiro with a trio.

Well established on today’s Brazilian jazz scene, Fernanda made her US debut in 2000, performing in Cleveland, Ohio, with guitarist Michael Manderen (Director of Oberlin Conservatory). She also met American based ensemble Grupo Brasil, with Kip Reed (bass), Gary Aprile (guitar) and Matt Perko (drums), with whom she appeared at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Blossom Summer Festival, Shaker Jazz Fest, Nightown, and other major venues.

Cunha recorded her debut solo album O Tempo e o Lugar in 2002, featuring Brazilian pianist Marcio Hallack’s arrangements and her American compatriots, Grupo Brasil. The album, released in Brazil, featured traditional Brazilian Samba and Bossa Nova feels and songs such as Djavan’s Muito Obrigado, Velas Icadas (Ivan Lins, Vitor Martin) and Tim Tim Por Tim Tim (Haroldo Barbarosa).

In January, 2004, Fernanda released her tribute to two important figures in Brazilian composition, classic Bossa Nova master Johnny Alf, and her aunt, pop songwriter-singer Sueli Costa, both of whom make appearances on Dois Corações (Two Hearts). The album features arrangements and performances by pianist Cristóvão Bastos, João Carlos Coutinho (piano, accordion), Camilia Dias (piano) and Jorjão Carvalho (bass), along with Jurim Moreira (drums), Zé Carlos (acoustic guitar) and Marcelo Martins (sax) among others.

Fernanda first performed in Canada in 2005, appearing at the Yardbird Suite in Edmonton and Beat Niq in Calgary with pianist Ricardo Rito. She returned in 2007 to perform at the Edmonton and Vancouver jazz festivals. In 2008, she returns to Canada in support of her latest album, Zíngaro (2007) featuring guitar player Ze Carlos and the songs of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Chico Buarque.

Fernanda has toured in US, Canada, Portugal, Brazil, among other countries.

Beautiful album of 10 songs by Tom e Chico!
This CD is a find! Fernanda sings beautifully; she has wonderful phrasing & a deep feeling for the music. Ze is a lively guitarist who duets with Fernanda more than accompanies. And 10 songs by Tom e Chico, how could you go wrong? They're all good; I esp like Anos Dourados and Imagona.
