Marcos Valle Tour Dates
The force behind Jazzinho is Lisbon native Guida de Palma. With a unique voice full of sensuality and strength, de Palma can soar in high notes just as easily as when she is singing Bossa Nova tunes. At times she will make you think you are listening to Flora Purim or even the soul sounds of The Emotions. Nevertheless, she claims as her major influences names such as Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Joyce, Chico Buarque, Marcos Valle, Gilberto Gil, Elis Regina, Azymuth and Ed Motta. Portuguese born, and classically trained Guida de Palma was only sixteen when bass legend and fallen angel Jaco Pastorius hopped on stage to join her during her very first gigs in Paris. Blessed by this almost divine collaboration, Guida went on singing her way onto various stages across Europe. With her crew of Latin Funketeers, she played support to prestigious performers ranging from Cab Calloway, Defunkt and Gilberto Gil.
