Hi, I’m Carla.
I’m a pianist, traveller, researcher and producer. My career is dedicated to artistic and social projects involving music, nature, culture, music and film production. My mission is: Taking the piano to nature and its people and bringing the richness of their music and culture back to the stage.
Through my work, I have the privilege of offering the public the chance to get closer to the piano, to get to know works by contemporary artists, to appreciate the diversity of peoples through the music of each place, and also to have a positive impact on needy communities.
I’m often asked, “how did it all begin”?
I was born in the south of Brazil and developed an early interest in the piano, this imposing and grand instrument. But since the beginning of my musical training, I sought originality and authenticity, looking for ways to connect the piano with the audience in a way that is not common in classical music.
At the same time that I sought this differential in music, my life has always been linked to nature, and this relationship is a constant source of inspiration. Joining these two passions was the next step. Today, I incorporate natural elements into organic and expressive performances, and outside the stage, I work on forming partnerships in the areas of preservation, education and development.
Music makes us travel, and for me, the piano is part of that adventure – a constant source of inspiration, innovation and transformation.
The piano is one of the most fascinating instruments for the public, be it for the appearance, sound or complexity of the construction. I don’t want the piano to be an instrument reserved for theatres and concert halls, confined to the great halls and accessible to a few. Following my instinct to innovate and being faithful to my artistic mission, I try to find ways to demystify and democratize this medium and to take the piano from being a mere musical instrument to become a means of social transformation.
