Beatriz Nunes’ album Canto Primeiro is the singer’s debut as an author. This album shows Beatriz Nunes’ experience between Classical, Jazz and Portuguese music. Her collaboration with Pedro Ayres Magalhães in Madredeus group since 2012 had a significant impact in the process of finding her own voice.
Canto Primeiro is mostly an album of Portuguese songs with contemplative character, between the heritage of Portuguese music and Jazz. It aims for a clean, simple and raw sonority.
Canto Primeiro has been selected to showcase in European Jazz Conference in 2018 and has been selected as Best Jazz in September 2018 in the Europe Jazz Media Chart by the critic Henning Bolte from Jazzism. It has also been a top 5 seller by Xango Music distribution in January and February 2019.
Accompanied by the trio of pianist Luis Barrigas, bassist Mario Franco and drummer Jorge Moniz, Canto Primeiro in as intimate record showing the amazing range of Beatriz Nunes’ voice, where she searches for new ways and new paths to develop her technique coming across her own compositions as much as in a little treasure from the legendary Portuguese singer-songwriter José Afonso. A choice of repertoire that explains very well where Beatriz Nunes wants to place herself in the continuum of great Portuguese voices.
