GRAMMY® Award-winner Luciana Souza is a leading jazz singer and interpreter. Born in São Paulo, Brazil, Souza was raised in a family of bossa nova innovators—her father a singer and songwriter, and her mother a poet and lyricist. Souza’s work as a performer transcends the traditional boundaries of musical styles, with roots in jazz, a sophisticated lineage in world music, and an enlightened approach to new music.

Souza has released numerous acclaimed recordings since 2002, including her six GRAMMY® Award-nominated records Brazilian Duos, North and South, Duos II, Tide, Duos III, and The Book of Chet. Her debut recording for Universal, The New Bossa Nova, was produced by her husband, Larry Klein, and was met with widespread critical acclaim. Souza’s recordings also include two works based on poetry—The Poems of Elizabeth Bishop and Other Songs, and Neruda. Her 2015 release, Speaking in Tongues, was praised by The New York Times.
