Lia de Itamaracá, was born and has always lived on the Island of Itamaracá. The singer, songwriter and dancer is an icon of Northeastern culture, a key figure of the ciranda (typical dance of Brazil) in Brazil and a living heritage of the State of Pernambuco.
Six decades later, Lia accumulated other titles: “Rainha da Ciranda”, “greatest ciranda singer and dancer in Brazil”, “diva of black music” and, since 2005, “Living Cultural Heritage” of the State of Pernambuco. In addition to her performance as a singer and songwriter, Lia is also an actress. Her recent work in cinema was with the award-winning film “Bacurau”.
In 2019, the partnership between Lia and the music producer Dj Dolores yields her new album that reveals that outside the ciranda, Lia is even sweeter and more powerful, a necessary experience for a singer and songwriter who shows her other facets and dares at the height of her career as a singer and actress.
