Fátima Miranda : voix, petits instruments et objets
FÁTIMA MIRANDA is quite renowned and respected in Europe, even though very few North Americans are aware of her work. Since the mid-1980s, she has been chasing down vocal traditions around the world. She studied bel canto, Japanese and Mongolian singings, Indian dhrupad and Azerbaijani mugham. Her compositions borrow from all of these styles, in addition to integrating her own extended techniques.
MIRANDA is a unique, unmatched singer. She seldom makes recordings, as she clearly favours the stage as a medium to communicate her art. Incidentally, she possesses keen showmanship and a strong stage persona. Her performances, where she sings while accompanying herself simply with small instruments and props, call on theatrical devices, even in venues as technically stripped-down as the Saint-Christophe d’Arthabaska Church. And she loves to draw audiences into her sweetly offhand universe through participation.
Come and witness a gorgeous voice, an endearing woman and an artist who relentlessly researches the oldest musical instrument in the world.
