Sweet Bohème

About Anita Fernandes:

Anita Fernandes gracefully marries her coloratura soprano vocal technique with her passion for Latin jazz & World music.

At the age of 19 she moved to London gaining much life & musical experience as a lead singer of a 9-piece funk outfit. Her talent was first discovered by renowned Australian country singer, 'James Blundell' whilst he was travelling throughout Europe, who then went on to produce her first album with her former group 'Yemanja', alongside Brazilan guitarist/composer Eddie Gazani. Yemanja recorded another two albums in Brazil featuring some of Brazilian Jazz's biggest names such as, Toninho Horta, Beto Lopes.


Anita infuses her passion for travel & culture into her music, by singing in many different cultural genres & their languages (Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, French). Her voice & compositions led her to perform on many world stages in Brazil, France, Italy, Japan, UK, Greece, Germany & of course, her homeland Australia throughout her 25+ year career.
