With a smile in her voice, Maria’s impeccable articulation and precise diction captivate audiences in a musical breeze of swinging standards, romantic ballads and Brazilian rhythms. As a vocalist and recording artist, Maria has performed internationally. Last year, she performed in Italy, and this year in Las Vegas, Denver and North Carolina. Maria was invited by Dennis Bono to appear on his syndicated show in Vegas after he discovered her music. Maria’s music can be heard regularly in New York, Denver, Canada and Italy. Maria is now working on her 4th album.
