Presented in Collaboration with NeoGeo Productions.
Bïa is a Brazilian singer and songwriter who incarnates what “world artist” is all about. Her voice, moves, charisma and guitar playing are soulful and sensual, her beautiful songs take you on a luminous trip from tears to laugh, from love to longing. After winning awards in France for her first album in 1997 and in Quebec for her self-produced 2015 album NAVEGAR, Bïa is riding the wave to Vancouver, accompanied by cellist Sheila Hannigan. As an opening act, we are thrilled to present Bïa in conversation with Vancouver-based actress and writer Carmen Aguirre. Both women share a similar story of moving around constantly with their parents who were part of dissident movements, one in Chile, the other in Brazil. A unique occasion where the power of words and music will reveal itself.
