Born in the quarter of the Rocas - considered the cradle of the samba - in the City of Natal - Valéria grew up around the sound of cavaquinho and tamborine that echoed from the rehearsals of the Schools of Samba. It must be therefore that “Mirá”, her newest CD, comes with so southeastern identity in the instruments, but also with a hot flavor from Valeria’s northeastern accent in each verse. Valéria invites you to board this trip at the sound of “Mirá” listening to samba and others Brazilian rhythms such as “Ijexá”, “Afoxé”, “Baião/Forró” among others.
Distributed by Biscoito Fino – the same recorder of names such as Chico Buarque, Francis Hime, Guinga, Miúcha, among others - “Mirá” has a special list of credits. The unmistakable baton of the regent Rildo Hora as musical director exemplifies these credits. Hora has followed the career of Valeria Oliveira since 2012. Hora and Oliveira started working together during the production of her previous CD - “In Clear Waters” – in honor of Clara Nunes, which had the participation of the Old Guard of the Portela. Hora and Oliveira also had a luxurious partner: the experienced musician and arranger, Jubileu Filho. About the small and sonorous word that gives the name to this new CD “Mirá”, it comes from the Nheengatu - an Amazonian dialect with origin in the Tupi-Guarani - which means “TREE”. Perhaps that’s why “Mirá” is this great meeting of names, poetry, and new and old partners, in reverence to the optimum one of the northeast of Brazil, samba, people and friends. At the Brasil Boat Valeria is going to present what “Mirá” really is.
