Roger Kellaway. She has appeared as the contralto soloist with the Santa Barbara Oratorio Chorale and has been featured as soloist with The Long Beach Symphony Orchestra, The San Luis Obispo Symphony Orchestra, and The Glendale Pops Orchestra as well as many International Jazz Festivals.
Her Cds as a leader, Garden Planet, Watercolors of Brazil and So Many Stars have received high praise from critics and audiences.
A native of Londrina, Brazil, Téka mastered the traditions of Brazilian music at an early age.Along the way, she became equally entranced by American jazz. As her artistry grew, her talented singing and guitar playing fused the sensual rhythms and harmonies of Brazil with the sophistication and improvisation of jazz – a fascinating musical blend she calls New Bossa. Téka has performed and recorded with Brazilian and American legends Hermeto Pascoal , Gilberto Gil, Flora Purim, Airto Moreira and Reviewing those albums, The Los Angeles Times wrote that, “Like João Gilberto, Téka brings everything into a unified expression, combining her vocal lines and rhythmic guitar accompaniments into a single, elegantly buoyant musical blend.” Her latest release, So Many Stars, was described by the International Review of Music as “a definitive statement that she has matured into a gifted, world-class musical artist. Téka has a summer evening breeze quality to her voice always. She is as smooth as bossa nova can be and that is very smooth indeed.”
