Brazilian singer, songwriter and rabeca player.

Renata Rosa has a career spanning two decades. Her music has an origin in the area of Pernambuco in the north of Brazil, which has indigenous influences but it is also influenced by the North African, Middle Eastern and music from the East of Europe. Her music has been played in stages over Europe such as Førd Festivalen in Norway, Sziget Festival in Hungary, Pohoda Festival in Czech Republic, Festival Voix de Femmes in France, and renowned venues such as Theatre de La Ville in France, Casa Da Musica in Portugal, Global in Copenhagen to name a few. Renata performed live for the first time in the UK at Showcase Scotland in the City Halls in January 2017.

Renata plays the "rabeca" a rudimentary violin of Arabic origin introduced to Brazil by the Portuguese colonizers in the 16th Century. In her repertoire, she includes Indigenous and Brazilian Northeastern polyphonies, being the latter one of her first music schools. The rhythms of her music are mostly original from the Pernambuco area such as cocos, baiões, cirandas and macumbas (rituals) produced by the 10 and 7 string guitars and the percussion.

"Rosa and her band flow through their set in a relaxed, almost telepathic empathy; their unhurried preparations contrasting sharply with the driving energy of the music" Folk Radio

Renata Rosa's album "Encantações" was selected Top of the world by Songlines magazine in March 2017.
