Brazilian Afro Soul
Xenia França hails from Bahia, the birthplace of Brazil’s most iconic musicians — Gal Costa, Caetano Veloso, and Gilberto Gil to name just three. França continues in that distinguished lineage, building a career that’s captivated audiences at home and abroad.
Her sound honors the roots of African diaspora in Brazil, blending traditional percussion with electronica, jazz, and R&B. Nominated for the Latin Grammy in 2018 both for her debut album Xenia, and also for the single “Pra Que Me Chamas?”
