Midian Almeida will be performing at the AAMF ‘Acoustic Vibes!’ concert at La Dolce Vita venue on Thursday, 16th November.

 Here are the biographical details from Midian’s website…

The singer, guitarist, songwriter and broadcaster Midian Almeida began her musical career in 1993, when attending music festivals and played in the Valley metropolitan region of Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul.
Coming from a family of musicians, her interest for singing happened from an early age. She turned professional at the age of 18. Very soon her work attracted the journalists. She very quickly became well known in the South of Brazil with many appearances on TV programs, local radio stations and articles in newspapers and magazines.
For instance Midian participated in the programs: Official Lunch (RBS), Good Morning Rio Grande (RBS), Stage (TV COM), Studio 36 (TV COM), Radar (TVE), Zoom (Guaíba) and Patrola (RBS).

From 1998, until she had left her home country, Midian worked as the singer of the Splash band in the best night events in Southern Brazil. A year later, the singer began recording commercial jingles and advertisements for producers and agencies from all over Brazil. In 2000, Midian worked with the singer and composer Oswaldo Montenegro, in the musical “Legends of the Island“, recording solos and vocals on the eponymous album. This work, which includes theatrical interpretation, became a milestone in the career of the singer, giving her professional insight and new knowledge. From 2001 to 2005, in addition to the presentations, the artist studied music, drama and dance at the Art Institute of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul. During this period of her life, she created in collaboration with other artists a NPO in order to promote the Brazilian Culture.From 2005, her voice was easily recognised as you could hear her in the most famous educational advertisement, “Education is everything“, which was inserted approximately 44,000 times in intervals of Globo TV programs and radio stations!

…The CD “A minha vez“, (in English ” my time”), was completed in the second half of 2009, through the Rouanet Law – Federal Brazilian Government, sponsored by Andreas Stihl S/A.

The release concert of the CD filled the Renaissance Theatre, in Porto Alegre, on the night of November 17, 2009; it was a great thrilling show.
Midian Almeida is one of the great voices of Brazilian popular music!
