Meta is Mariana Bragada who explores the essence of the voice.
Born in Bragança, with deep roots in nature and the memory of singing and dancing since she came to life. She collects and stitches sounds of the world, recording them while travelling or hearing them in her heart, creating a blanket of sound patches, of imaginary paths and traditions. Uniting technology with natural and ancestral inspiration, she re-creates visions and manifestations through improvisations and chants, sharing the creation process in the moment and appreciating the journey as the destination..

In 2018 she participated in the Festival Bons Sons, Um ao Molhe, TedxPorto, SofarSounds Porto/Coimbra/Madrid and recorded for “A Música Portuguesa a Gostar Dela Própria” and Antena 1. In 2019 she was a finalist in the Festival da Canção, participating by invitation of Antena 1, with the original composition/interpretation “Mar Doce”.

She also released the single “Saudade” and later the debut EP Mónada - released independently/author’s edition, available now on all online platforms and in physical format.

In February 2020, she completed her first European Tour in collaboration with Chau (Music Agency) and with the support of the GDA Foundation, performing in 4 countries. At the end of 2020, Meta was one of the projects chosen for the Festival Emergente Line-Up by the Jury’s contest and won the “Best Musical Project” award to record her first album.
