JOYCE RETURNS WITH A BEAUTIFULLY INTIMATE ACOUSTIC ODE TO HER CITY RIO DE JANEIRO SIMPLY TITLED RIO. BACK TO HER ROUTES WITH GUITAR & unique SCATTING VOCALS. "In the summer of 2010, I was invited by the city of Rio to present a solo show on Ipanema beach. It was intended as a sort of luau for people leaving the beach, with just voice and guitar. I threw a sundress over my swimsuit, flip-flops on my feet, coconut water within easy reach, and there I was. The sea of people, both locals and tourists, on the sand; the presence of friends who, like me, grew up on that stretch of beach; the joy of giving joy to so many - all these together made the show one of the happiest I'd ever given. Seeing all those people singing with me the city's anthem, "Cidade Maravilhosa," was priceless. This CD, titled Rio, was born, when the sun sank behind the Dois Irmãos hill, and the crowd applauded as we had done so many years ago. A crowd that applauds a simple sunset must be very good folk. Rio - the mountain, the sun and the sea - where I make my samba simply." JOYCE, 2012 Born in Rio in 1948, Joyce is one of Brazil's most internationally acclaimed artists. Joyce recorded her first album in 1968 and was one of very few to compose all her own material. Because of this she was one of the few voices to speak from a feminist perspective, which she expressed most famously on her song 'Feminina'. She has since gone on to issue more than 20 solo albums, hear more than 300 recordings of her songs by many of Brazil's most respected singers (Milton Nascimento, Elis Regina, Flora Purim and Gal Costa amongst them) and tour the world many times over. Brazilian singer, composer and guitarist, Joyce is one of the great musical treasures of Brazil whose personal musical style was nurtured in Rio's fertile jazz and samba scenes. 'Rio' combines Joyce's Brazilian rhythms, jazz and bossa harmonies and intelligent lyrics through her beautifully expressive voice on special original compositions - new and old - alongside unique versions of classic Brazilian songs from greats including Tom Jobim, Caetano Veloso, and Carlos Lyra.
