About Vanessa Isaac:

Vanessa Isaac is a Brazilian performer. Her work has been featured on CNN Headline News, Fox and Friends, Dance Spirit Magazine and many others publications. She has also been nominated for the Brazilian International Press Award. Vanessa is co-founder with her husband, composer/musician Randy Tico, of Hip Brazil Productions.

In 2001 she co-founded the BAND Hipbrazil (same name as the production company). She served as producer, choreographer and singer. Within the first years, Hip Brazil created a loyal following with sold-out venues and fans intoxicated by Hip Brazil’s infectious sound: inspired by the rhythms of Brazilian pop, samba, afro Brazilian and bossa nova with a sprinkling of funk. Hip Brazil brought together world-class musicians including Vince Denham on sax, Cassio Duarte on percussion, Jeff Elliott on trumpet and keyboards. George Friedenthal ..boards, Kevin Winard on drums, Teka on vocals and guitar, Randy Tico on bass and Vanessa Isaac doing vocals.

Taking the time for her dance and production of media was essential for Vanessa's work. The company, under her direction, release award winning DVDs. Her art is a reflection of her personality, background and philosophy of life. Inspired by Brazilian, modern/contemporary music and dance, she believes in creating community with art, inspiring people of all ages to share their journey with each other. The Independent stated: " Isaac's success has a lot to do with her warmth, charm and knack for making people feel at ease, but it is her skill and knowledge of the culture that that truly brings an authentic experience."



About Randy Tico:
RANDY TICO's love for and involvement with the music of Brazil has led to collaborations with Airto Moreira and Flora Purim, Ivan Lins, Kleber Jorge (singer w/ Sergio Mendes), Dori Caymmi, Cesar Camargo Mariano, Rique Pantoja, Teka and his wife, Vanessa. He also gained a solid reputation as an inventive and versatile bassist, composer and sound designer.

His original scores for theater, studio work and his own ambitious multi-media pieces have garnered much attention. His involvement with the band MATRIX in the '70's included national tours, recordings (Warner Bros, Pablo) and particular notice for his distinctive, melodic bass style which became the cornerstone of the Matrix sound. As a bassist he has performed and recorded with a wide range of musicians including Flora Purim and Airto, Matrix, Kenny Loggins, Strunz and Farah, John McEuen, Joe Farrell, Scott Cossu, Sadao Wantanabe, Henry Butler and Willie & Lobo.

His original music and sound design for APOLLO - PART 1: LEBENSRAUM at the Kirk Douglas Theatre, directed by Nancy Keystone, received the Garland Award and an Ovation nomination. He composed music and designed sound for the '06 Los Angeles premiere of Suzan-Lori Parks’ THE AMERICA PLAY directed by Keystone for The Theatre@Boston Court. Other collaborations with director Keystone have included ANTIGONE at Portland Center Stage for which he won the Drammy Award, the critically acclaimed THE AKHMATOVA PROJECT, Marlowe's DR. FAUSTUS‚ THE ROVER and MEASURE FOR MEASURE.

In the '80's Tico began assembling large-scale multi-media projects for the annual Santa Barbara Arts Festivals. SOUNDSCAPES, involving music, multiple-projector visuals and dance, resulted in an album release on Inner Circle records with Tico at the helm as performer, composer, and producer. In 1990 Higher Octave Music released his album, EARTH DANCE‚ featuring his original compositions. The album received critical acclaim and featured performances by Airto, Jorge Strunz, Steve Kujala, Ricardo Silveira, Gary Meek, Mike Shapiro and many more.

Tico has written music for syndicated television and feature films including STEAL BIG, STEAL LITTLE directed by Andrew Davis director of THE FUGITIVE. He has also created music and sound design for DVD’s about Ireland, China, Argentina, Cuba, Mexico, the Czech Republic and Australia for the visual journalism dept. at BROOKS INSTITUTE OF PHOTOGRAPHY.
