Brasileira, paulistana, singer, composer and producer Tita Lima brings us her mixture of MPB (Brazilian Popular Music), Samba-Jazz, Bossa Nova, Hip-Hop and Dub. Born into a family of musicians, music came to Tita Lima naturally. She learned to play the piano with her grandmother and later the bass with her father, who was the bass player for 70s rock band Os Mutantes. She paid her dues in Sao Paulo's musical scene playing bass, singing and sharing the stage with widely-recognized artists such as Bocato (Metalurgia, Elis Regina, Gal Costa, Maria Rita), Joao Donato, Luz de Caroline, Locosapiens, Luizao Tiu e Juneca, Nucleo and Dori Caymmi, among many others.
She now joyously embarks on her first solo recording titled 11:11. For this album Lima gathers a host of excellent musicians and producers from Brazil and the United States including Apollo 9, Andre Caccia Bava, Kassin, JJ (Jorge Ben), Beto Cascales and Bryan Velasco among others. Tita's music has become a favorite among DJs in Brazil, the United States and Europe, including Rafael Moraes, Garth Trinidad and Gilles Peterson, who included the song "A Conta Do Samba" in his upcoming compilation Brownswood Bubblers.
In addition, two of Tita's songs from 11:11 will be featured in LEXUS' Sampler CD (featuring Sergio Mendes and others) to be distributed worldwide in Fall 2006. Armed with a great band whose members have played and/or recorded with Sergio Mendes, Airto Moreira, Flora Purim, Jurassic 5, Keb Mo and Celia Cruz among many others, Ms. Lima is ready to take her music to audiences around the world.
