Tita Lima is a singer, composer and producer. “Freshly squeezed and just the right side of avant garde” according to Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio). She makes a sophisticated mix of bossa nova/samba with soul, dub and afrobeat. Definetly, Tita is one of the best in new brazilian music scene.

Music’s in her blood. With her father, the musical producer and former Os Mutantes´ bass player Liminha, she had her first guitar and bass lessons. When she was 14, living in the United States, she built her own band in Pensilvania. A little later, already in Los Angeles, Tita studied at the Musician’s Institute, where she discovered jazz, blues and soul music.

In that time, she performed for more than four years at the best house of shows of the USA, House of Blues, in the famous Sunset Strip. It was then that the singer knew and made jam sessions with Steve Wonder, Etta James, Chaka Khan, Bernard Purdie (drummer of James Brown), Meshell N’Dedge O’Cello, Larry Granham, Charlie Hunter, Bill Withers, Al Green, Bootsy Collins, and other personalities who had a big influence in her work.

Back to Brazil in 2001, Tita Lima and her band at the time, Luz de Caroline, (Tatá Aeroplano, Dudu Tsuda and Isidoro Cobra, Guilherme Held, Ze Aurelio and Gustavo Souza) performed various times next to Otto, Lanny Gordin, Junio Barreto, Sabotage, Matolli, Lucas Santana, within others.

Her first album, called 11:11 was only released in the USA with the label Belú Music in 2007. It counts with the participation of famous musicians such as Kassin, Djalma Lima, Bocato, Robinho, Bira, André Caccia Bava, Ale Grooves, Rogério Rochlitz, Fernadinho Beat Box, among others. Tita also recorded two tracks for the album Res Inexplicata Volans of Apollo 9, released by Crammed in Europe and in the US, and for the album Estudando a Bossa, of Tom Zé.

In 2006, her music “A Conta do Samba” entered the collection Brownwood Bubblers of Gilles Peterson, journalist of BBC of London. In 2007, Tita participated at the TrocaBrahma festival, that happened in Brazil and in the United Kingdom, when she also accomplished her first tour throughout Europe, passing through Spain, Switzerland and
France, and performed in festivals and international music fairs, such as WOMEX and SXSW. At this first, she represented Brazil along with only two other artists :Yamandú Costa and Mestre Siba.

Nowadays Tita keeps on performing the repertory of Possibilidades – her second album, released by LABEL A in 2010 – throughout Brazil. She opened for indie musa Cat Power in São Paulo last year, befora a tour throughout US. In 2011 Tita Lima made a couple of show in US again and in City of Mexico.
