Denise Reis plays in New York

Singer, guitarist and composer Denise Reis was born in Belo Horizonte, the capitol of the state of Minas Gerais (the second largest state by population, and the fourth largest by area) in southeastern Brazil.

Denise began studying guitar at age 10 and attended Julia Pardini’s Choral Association. Four years later, in 1986, she was invited to take part in a European tour. As her musical career progressed, she found widespread acclaim and encouragement from the Brazilian people and media. This success was due in part to Denise’s remarkable ability to impeccably imitate the sound of the trumpet using only her lips and voice.

Her album Alfândega, launched in 2007, debuts many of her own compositions and features musical production by Denise herself, Marcelo Nami and acclaimed percussionist Marcos Suzano.

During the last few years, Denise has been invited to tour in various countries including Senegal, Ukraine, Venezuela, Portugal, and Israel, where she had the privilege of working with some of the world’s most famous and talented international artists. In 2009 Denise was honored with an invitation to compose a song and perform for His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama in Albany, NY.

Denise amazes and delights audiences from around the world with her warmth, unique artistic expression and exquisite musicality. Her
music, rich with emotion and Latin-American textures, speaks to the human ear and heart, allowing concertgoers and listeners to experience commonalities of human experience transcending all cultural barriers.

Through her music Denise strives to bring the harmony, warmth and joy embodied by Brazilian culture to the world. In November 2010, having just returned from her second tour this year with world-renowned composer Yoni Rechter, Denise will be visiting New York City to show case her talent and expand her international music career to include the US.
