This week on the Jolly Papa show we sat down with local Brazilian singer-songwriter & bandleader Cissa Paz to talk about her creative process, recording projects, African connections in Brazilian music and the power of vulnerability in art. We also listened to three tracks from her debut album, “Cissa Paz,” songs recorded in Brazil and steeped in the rich traditions of Afro-Brazilian and Luso-African music. Cissa’s captivating stage presence and soulful voice bring music that is fresh, fun and rhythmic to the DC scene. Local folks, do yourself a favor and check her website for upcoming shows.
