One of the most promising artists of Portugal’s contemporary music scene performs at Foundry this Thursday.
With an authentic personality, sweet manner and soft voice, singer and songwriter Fábia Maia represents a new type of woman on the Portuguese hip hop scene.
Fábia, an international relations graduate, captivates audience through her rhythm; an outcome of her musical research but also, she believes, of her natural gift as a girl from mixed heritage – her father is a Brazilian and her mother is Portuguese.
She first became interested in performing music at the age of 11 when her maternal grandmother gave her a guitar as a gift. In 2014, videos she posted on YouTube attracted not only fans but also other artists interested in working with her. In 2015 Fábia started performing her own compositions, which blend hip hop, soul and R&B.
