Brazil Beyond Samba
“The expressiveness and technical mastery in Caro Pierotto’s voice underscores Brazil’s tradition of great female singers – From Sylvia Telles to Gal Costa. The fact that she can also write songs of breathtaking beauty is nothing short of remarkable.” – Ernesto Lachner Latin Alternative for NPR
Caro’s presence is felt as soon as she strikes her first note, and her music has found audiences all over the globe. She sings originals and covers in Portuguese, Spanish and English. Her most recent album, ‘Em Português’, was just released back in May 2020 and made it to the ballot for this year’s Grammy Awards for Best Global Music Album. Her latest music video for the single ‘Alem do Mar’ has been shortlisted for the prestigious Music Professionals Awards in Brazil in the Best Music Video category.
She has toured in Indonesia, France, Portugal, Mexico, Canada, United Kingdom, Ecuador and Colombia, worked with world renowned producer Pharrell Williams for the movie ‘Trash’ by acclaimed director Stephen Daldry and was featured on Tom Schnabel’s renowned playlist ‘Rhythm Planet’ at KCRW Radio Show.
With a captivating vintage voice and a repertoire that includes samba, reggae pop and soul, Caro Pierotto defies labels and expresses her art without musical borders in genres, always focusing on spreading love, hope and healing through her music and presence.
Her show, Brazil Beyond Samba, had performances last season that included five shows in Vancouver, BC, a concert for Latino Arts, Milwaukee and a standing room only presentation at Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music!
