Direct from Salvador, Bahia, Dany Maia brings the authentic sounds of Brazilian music to Australian audiences.

A multi-talented performer with an irrepressible stage presence, Dany Maia embodies the true spirit of the 'Baiana.' Dany will be joined by bass aned guitar player, composer and arranger Jorge Albuquerque. Jorge was born in Rio de Janeiro and has travelled around the world playing Brazilian music and jazz.
