Paula Maya and her band pay tribute to this golden era of the Brazilian music repertoire. Besides authentic Brazilian bossa nova, their performance adds elegance, movement and beauty to any occasion providing a soothing, sultry sound that is both relaxing and make you wanna dance. You will hear all the classic songs: Girl from Ipanema, Chega de Saudade (No More Blues), Corcovado (Quiet Nights) and many more.

Maya is an award winning Brazilian pianist and singer originally from Zona Sul (South area ) of Rio de janeiro, Brazil,
the birth place of bossa nova. In fact her dad frequented Ipanema beach in his teenage years, way before it became developed, and was part of the same circle as the great Antônio Carlos 'Tom' Jobim (composer of Girl from Ipanema).

Before Paula moved to the US she was blessed to study with the great Luizinho Eça, who was a very influential pianistand arranger during the bossa nova era. Eça's own composition, the Dolphin, is considered a jazz standard, being recorded by artists as diverse as Stan Getz and Bill Evans. Paula also met the great Brazilian guitarist Baden Powell, who told her dad that she 'can sing like a bird'. Powell also mentioned Paula at some of his shows as 'ahead of her generation'.
