Rosanna & Zelia, their story is a journey, beginning in Minas Gerais (Brazil) heading via Portugal and Finland to Germany. In Europe 1993 they began to develop a song style of their own. Far from their homeland they began to see Brazilian music from a new viewpoint and then explored its Afro-Brazilian and Indian roots.

They take elements from Brazilian music of all genre - Musica Popular Brasileira, rhythms and folklore of different Brazilian regions, music of the native Brazilian people and also from jazz and pop music - adding sounds from many other parts of the world to enrich their artistic language.

Guest musicians with totally different cultural backgrounds brought in more musical influences: e.g. bandoneon player Dino Saluzzi from Argentina, American harmonica player Howard Levy, clarinet virtuoso Claudio Puntin and Katharina Franck (Rainbirds). The result is a magical trip of the soul with a global tinge: sparsely arranged songs that vibrate with melodicism, feeling and relaxation.

Angela Frontera, the lady at the drums, is an important partner of Rosanna & Zelia. One of the most outstanding Brazilian percussionists, she brings the dynamics of a big band to the duo. Her part is essential for the sound of Rosanna & Zelia - and as essential for the music are the lyrics.
