There is a Brazilian expression that says “ A Baiana is not born, A Baiana debuts”, and a better one: What is it this Baiana has got? Baiana is a person born in Bahia – Brazilian Northeast State. Dany Maia, innate Baiana, yet at home, debuted very early in the music industry and now brings to Australia what she’s got. Merging all the percussive rhythms from Bahia with Brazil's classic (Bossa Nova) and Pop (Samba) tunes, she makes of her music a cultural melting pot. Her new show “Black Pearl” is a tribute to important black artists from Brazil, such as Dorival Caymmi, Cartola, and Clementina de Jesus, just to name a few. Joined by musicians Jorge Albuquerque, Al Kerr, Diego Villalta, and especial guests, this show promises to be fun and unforgettable.
