Info Acclaimed by the public and critics alike, Bárbara Eugênia is part of a new generation of female voices that are redefining the Brazilian musical scene. Born in Rio de Janeiro but calling São Paulo home since 2005, this young artist with a unique voice and highly nuanced stage persona started her career with an invitation from musical producer Apollo 9 to record two tracks for the movie O Cheiro do Ralo, directed by Heitor Dhália. Inspired by French chanson, Bárbara decided to shift the focus back onto songs made popular by singers like Anna Karina and Brigitte Bardot, in a tribute to Serge Gainsbourg, idealized by Edgard Scandurra. In her participation in shows by the group 3NAMASSA, comprised of Pupillo and Dengue from Nação Zumbi and Rica Amabis from Instituto, Bárbara added a female touch that made for a magical public performance. As she starts her solo career, Bárbara travels from Brazil to French music, and has been well-received by both the public and the media; her shows in various cities around Brazil signal her coming of age as an artist. In 2009, she decided to record her first album, bringing together a group of friends all seeking to tap her artistic character in surprising ways. She is accompanied by her talented band: Júnior Boca (guitar and musical direction), Dustan Gallas (bass, keyboards, mixing and production) and Felipe Maia (drums). We began recording in january/2009 and after a brief pause we managed to finish it up in the begining of 2010. The album is called Journal de BAD. Journal for diary in french and BAD is my nickname for the closest friend.
