BIOGRAPHY

As a Brazilian singer/songwriter, Chella aims to reimagine traditional Brazilian rhythms - such as baião and afoxé - and bring them into the ears of the young generation. Having launched her debut pop EP, “Bittersweet” at the age of 17, Chella realized that Brazilians - including herself - were more involved with North-American pop than with their national music. With this in mind, she began to explore the infinite possibilities that Brazilian music has to offer and specialized in it. Today, Chella’s music is a mixture of Brazilian and Latin rhythms, jazz harmonies and pop forms. She performs regularly around Boston and São Paulo. 

Chella currently studies Music Business and Songwriting at Berklee College of Music, where she performs regularly with her band. She is working on new music, heavily influenced by Brazilian rhythms, and plans on releasing it soon. 

At Berklee, Chella also had the opportunity of recording with Mexican artist Natalia Lafourcade, one her biggest musical inspirations. 

Chella has recently won the 2020 annual Peermusic Latin Scholarship Award from the BMI Foundation for her original song "São Paulo".

Now, Chella is wrapping up her studies at Berklee College of Music, while she prepares her debut EP for release - coming very soon!
