Biography

Katia Bronstein grew up in the Ipanema beach neighborhood during the late 60’s and early 70’s. Her mother used to take part in ‘roundups’ at bars and parties during the very birth of this music style. Later she sung in the choirs of female voices on Egberto Gismonti’s early recordings. Music was always an issue at her home and she started to follow classes at an early age, giving in her passion for singing. Katia also gave way to performing arts by studying dance and theatre and by taking part in a very famous group of young ‘avant-garde’ artists in Rio de Janeiro (at the beginning of the 80’s). Among the very famous local artists who rose from this group was her long time close friend Bebel Gilberto (João Gilberto’s daughter).

After taking part in several movies, plays, musicals and dancing projects, Katia concentrated her career on singing. In the mid 90’s, when she started to look for some new partners to give a deeper focus on her musical concepts, Katia had the luck to find the late great producer Suba. Before his untimely death in 1999, she had the privilege to have him mixing her first album, ‘Katia B’ (2000). Suba also invited her to compose and sing on his successful album ‘São Paulo Confessions’. Their partnership can be heard on the track called ‘Secret’. Later she participated on his tribute album ‘Tributo’, on the track ‘Are you Sleeping?’.

Katia’s second album, ‘Só Deixo Meu Coração Na Mão de Quem Pode’ (2003), was released worldwide.
