about

"Freshly squeezed and just the right side of avant garde, I love this!" — Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio 1)

"Tita comes off a selfless artist that thinks like a producer and whose sole concern is the vibe. Her sound is utterly modern and sultry while exclusively roots-laden and raw. Tita Lima worldwide!!!" — Garth Trinidad KCRW 89.9 (Los Angeles)

"The Brazil the world wants." — Rolling Stone (Brazil Edition)

"If we had to pick a genre, we'd probably call this one modern bossa -- but Tita's also clearly got ears for a wide variety of other sounds too, and brings in some nice doses of contemporary soul on a few tracks." — Dustygroove.com

"One of the new voices in Brasil for 2007." — Straight No Chaser


Tita Lima: Brasileira, paulistana, singer and composer brings us her mixture of MPB (Brazilian Popular Music), Samba-Jazz, Bossa Nova, Hip-Hop and Dub. Born into a family of musicians, music came to Tita Lima naturally. She learned to play the piano with her grandmother and later the bass with her father, the bass player for the 70s rock band "Os Mutantes". Tita also studied in Los Angeles’ MI (Musician’s Institute) and has paid her dues in São Paulo’s musical scene playing bass, singing and sharing the stage with widely-recognized artists such as Bocato (Metalurgia, Elis Regina, Gal Costa, Maria Rita), João Donato, Luz de Caroline, Núcleo and Dori Caymmi, among many others.
She now joyously embarks on this, the journey of her first solo recording titled "11:11", one in which she gathers a host of excellent musicians and producers from Brazil and the United States including Apollo 9 (ex-Planet Hemp, producer for Otto and Seu Jorge), Andre Caccia Bava, Kassim, JJ (Jorge Bem), Beto Cascales and Bryan Velasco among others. Tita’s music has been a favorite amont DJs worldwide, including Patricia Palumbo and Rafael Moraes (Brazil), Garth Trinidad (US) and Gilles Peterson (UK), who included her song “A Conta Do Samba” in the upcoming compilation “Brownswood Bubblers” to be released on his Brownswood Recordings label in September 2006. In addition, two of Tita’s songs from “11:11” will be featured in LEXUS’ Sampler CD (featuring Sergio Mendes and others) to be distributed worldwide in Fall 2006. Armed with a great band whose members have played and/or recorded with Sergio Mendes, Airto Moreira, Flora Purim, Jurassic 5, Keb Mo and Celia Cruz among many others, Ms. Lima is ready to take her music to audiences around the world.
