Bia Ferreira is a Brazilian singer, composer, multi-instrumentalist and artivist that defines her music as “MMP — Música de Mulher Preta” (Black Woman Music). Her songs are against racism, homophobia and other subjects. Her songs are all about feminism and love. Politics is also a topic. Still a teen, she got out of her home, and traveled alone with a guitar all around Brazil, living
from her music, playing everywhere she was allowed to. Singing and playing to everyone that wanted to hear her. Spreading messages of love but also talking about feminism, racism and homophobia.
One day, she found herself making a Sofar Sound session. One of the songs she played Cota Não É Esmola have more than 13 millions views on YouTube.
She’s been playing solo or with a band all over Brazil and in Europe since 2017. In October 2022, she played a showcase at the WOMEX in Lisbon, which turned out to be one of the best shows of the fair. That showcase (and of course, all that Bia Ferreira has been making since teenager) finally gave her what she always wanted: that her music could be heard by people from all around the world, even sung in Portuguese. She made a live recording in 2018 for Estúdio Showlivre project (her first release). One year later, the first studio record called Igreja Lesbiteriana, Um Chamado. And now, at the end of 2022, the sophomore Faminta.
