Anelis Assumpcao is full of swing and groove. She's a Singer, songwriter and percussionist, who's about to release her first album including a handful of original song. Itamar Assumpcao, an icon in Brazilian music, would proud of his legacy: Anelis, his daughter, work has been receiving critics accolades not only for music but also for keeping her father's poetry and style alive. Her music is a mixture of samba, reggae, hip-hop and the so-called "Vanguarda Paulistana" an expression designed to describe the indescribable genre created by Itamar.
Her soothing low voice and theatrical interpretation on stage stress the Power of her lyrics: on "Bola com os amigos" she directly addresses and common frustration amongst Brazilian women: her beau is out playing soccer with friends... Her lyrics could easily be those of comic strips on a newspaper: funny, direct, acid...
Her new album "Sou Suspeita Estou Sujeita Nao Sou Sant"was released in 2011 both in CD and in Vinyl.
