Short Bio
 

Cissa Paz’s new album, Curandeira, which means “healer,” represents a culmination of personal and musical growth for the acclaimed singer-songwriter. Paz has earned a reputation as a musical innovator in the DC area along with three Wammie nominations and a dedicated following.

 

Her style is a unique blend of regional Northeast Brazilian styles—including forró, samba, and maracatu—with a twist of jazz, funk, and soul. As a composer and performer, Paz has always been interested in creating something new, combining her musical passions and interests in a way that not only celebrates her Brazilian African-indigenous roots but builds on them as well.
