Singer, songwriter and performer. She began her professional musical career 10 years ago.

Preta brings samba jazz with her.

SAMBA DA PRETA
A musical salad of rhythms.
She calls herself an ACTIVIST because she uses music as a tool for liberation and racial literacy.
Her compositions talk about anti-racism, Brazilian history.
An indigenous and Quilombola mix.
“Art is the greatest form of liberation and transformation of a people, because art doesn’t see colour or social class, it enters into all leagues. You have to be artistically aware, because art transforms.
You have to know how to use it for good.”
