Anita met Nick Watson in 2018. Nick plays the 7-string guitar and together they perform Brazilian music around Melbourne. They both share a similar interest in songs about social justice and while they enjoy playing Bossa Nova and Samba standards, a large portion of their repertoire consists of music that came about under the harsh years of Brazilian military rule. Anita and Nick participated in the Wellington Jazz Festival 2019. Based in Melbourne, the duo continue performing and recording covers of their favourite songs.
Anita & Nick cover a Brazilian Samba 'Upa Neguinho' written by Edu Lobo and Gianfrancesco Guarnieri. Filmed in Melbourne by Daniel Levy.
Anita & Nick cover Björk’s ‘Hyperballad’ - one of Anita’s favourite artists!
Here is a cover of Tom Zé's (Brazilian artist) 'Tô'
Tom Jobim is acclaimed as one of Brazil’s most greatest musicians. Anita & Nick chose ‘Chovendo na Roseira’ also known as ‘Children’s Games’ in English.
While the duo love to perform Brazilian music, they cover songs in English with a Brazilian twist such as Stevie Wonder’s ‘Overjoyed’.
