Bia Ferreira, a Brazilian singer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist, stands out for her innovative approach to combining Afrodiasporic rhythms – like soul, R&B, reggae and rap – with Brazilian music – such as samba and repente. She is known for her straightforward lyrics addressing important topics like necropolitics, racial quotas, anti-racism, women's rights, LGBTQIAP+ rights, and affection.
After hugely successful WOMEX showcase, Bia Ferreira had a packed festival summer 2023 in Europe and the US, and also played a successful club tour.
Her music, particularly "Cota Não É Esmola," is widely popular and even integrated into educational materials. Her latest album, Faminta, (late 2022) is a pivotal shift in her career, focusing on the transformative power of affection and covering a wide range of themes. Bia Ferreira's influence extends beyond music, as she has contributed to newspapers and radio shows and continues to evolve her lyrical focus toward solutions.
