Eneida Marta is one of the most genuine and vibrant african voices and a true embassador of the Bissau-Guinean music.
Eneida loves her country with pasision, and it was this same passion that led her to embrace several humanitarian causes, having been appointed UNICEF’s embassador to the Bissau-Guinea.
In 2006 one of the world music giants, Putumayo World Music featured her music in the compilation “An Afro-Portuguese Odissey”.
That same year Eneida Marta takes first prize in a World Music competition with the song “Mindjer Dôlce Mel” that Putumayo would also feature in the compilation “Acoustic Africa”.
Later in 2008, WOMEX selected Eneida Marta for a showcase before more than tree thousand delegates, a truly special moment that was the beggining of an acclaimed international tour.
These are just some highlights of the journey that brought Eneida to where she now stands, a journey across dozens of stages, from Madrid to Barcelona and Amsterdam, from Vancouver to Rome, Budapest, Mexico City, Boston, London and Bern, in all of them the
same heart felt applause that rises after you’ve found a voice filled with soul, dreams, pain and joy.
Eneida is a special human being, a woman of causes and strenght. And this is what we can find in her new album “Ibra” in collaboration with musicians from the Congo, Portugal and Bissau-Guinea or the from the jazz world.
Live, she performs with an acoustic quartet, recreating her work differently according to the stage she finds herself in.
Eneida Marta is truly a special artist, a soul of unique depth.
