Los Angeles, CA (Bright Karma Media Relations) - After recording and sharing the stage with such well-known Brazilian musicians as Bocato (Elis Regina, Gal Costa, Maria
Rita), João Donato, Apollo 9, Luz de Caroline, Núcleo and Dori Caymmi, talented composer and singer Tita Lima debuts her first solo effort entitled, '11:11.'
In collaboration with some of Brazil and the United States' hottest producers, Tita Lima has created a delightfully eclectic yet very palpable blend of musical compositions and performances with a smooth and soulful, yet rhythmic style that is already drawing comparisons to Sade and Norah Jones.
'11:11' is a labour of love for Tita, with the title holding a significant numerological meaning for the singer. 'While creating the music for this project, I would come across the numbers 11:11 everywhere. On clocks, watches, television, even on the radio on an almost daily basis, this number would manifest itself. After reading up on the numbers' significance in numerology, I found out they represent the positive, spiritual congruency that I wanted to convey through my music. The title, in this way, manifested itself naturally,' explains Tita.
Tita's musical background includes time spent in Los Angeles studying at the Musician's Institute, where she not only studied electric bass, but also immersed herself in the technical aspects of music production. During a stint working at the House of Blues, she also got to playbasas and sing in jam sessions with artists like Meshell Ndegeocello, Bernard Purdie, Stevie Wonder and Chaka Khan. Upon her return to São Paulo, she honed her musical and production skills while working some of Brazil's top musicians and producers.
Dividing her time between Brazil and the United States, and armed with a great band whose members have performed and/or recorded with Sergio Mendes, Herbie Mann, Toninho Horta, Bebel Gilberto, Jurassic 5 and Rubén Blades among many others, Tita is now ready to embark upon the journey or presenting her first solo album to the world. In addition to her much-anticipated solo release, Tita will also appear on compilations for Lexus Automobiles ; and the Brownswood Bubblers compilation to be released on world-renowned DJ Giles Peterson's record label.
