Martie Short Info

Martie is a Brazilian based jazz vocalist/pianist born in Holland in 1982, influenced by jazz and passionate about the rich diversity of Brazilian music.

Bachelor at Codarts (Rotterdam 2006) and Master at Fontys (Tilburg 2008), in jazz vocals and composition; she specialized in Brazilian music.

With a distinctive voice, Martie creates a peculiar fusion between European sonority and Brazilian roots. She easily transits from introspective Brazilian Popular Music to smooth cadenced Sambas, and makes a unique combination of the lucidity of sounds and the rhythmic intensity of Brazilian music.

During her first visit to Brazil in 2010, Martie recorded a special program, performing 1,5 hour for TV Globo – Ceará, and performed in several festivals in the country.

Martie has been going deeper in a serious study of the Brazilian repertoire since then.
The result of this work is the CD “Quem te viu” which she prepared in collaboration with the reputed pianist from Rio de Janeiro, Claudio Dauelsberg. (http://claudiodauelsberg.com.br/)

In February 2016 the CD will be released under the international label 'Dottime Records'.


Martie:
"I've recorded songs from all over Brazil, ranging from Luiz Gonzaga, Nelson Cavaquinho, Choro, Bossa Nova to Sambas of the 60’s from Rio and Bahia.
I am intrigued by rhythms like Maracatu and Candomble. However, I won't deny my jazz-roots. With Claudio Dauelsberg I share great affinity with the sound transparency of European jazz. Together we combine Brazilian rhythms with a light touch of sophistication. At the same time, I bear in mind that we live in the 21st century (experimenting with electronic sounds) , an interesting era with challenging choice decisions to take."
