Founder of the agency, Zanna sings, plays guitar and composes from an early age. Her first solo album received three Nominations for the 2017 Latin Grammys, including Best Brazilian Music Album. Among the most popular tracks on Spotify are “Vento de Praia Nordeste” and “Menina de Vento”, part of the soundtrack for the soap opera “Orgulho e Paixão” (Globo TV). She is the voice of Rio de Janeiro’s subway system and composer of its music theme, a constant presence in graduation parties throughout the city. The artist also published the book “Sound Branding, the Lifetrack of brands”.
Born in Rio de Janeiro, Zanna studied lyric singing, composed, arranged, and recorded the albums “Voyage to Brazilia” and “Karmalions” with the Bossa Nostra band during the years she lived abroad in Europe. One of the tracks, “Jackie”, became a hit in the Acid Jazz scene and was added to international compilations. “Inverno”, another song composed by her, followed the same path. The singer-songwriter and her Italian band had the honor of opening the show for American pianist and composer Herbie Hancock, a jazz master, during his performance at the celebrated Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland.
The solo album “Zanna” was produced by Moogie Canazio between Rio de Janeiro and Los Angeles, California. It had string arrangements signed by Eduardo Souto Neto and featured great MPB musicians such as Jorge Elder, Milton Guedes, Marcelo Costa, Jaime Alem and Rildo Hora. A second version for the track “Inverno” also featured the American trumpeter Dan Fornero.
With Sound Branding, Zanna transcends the boundaries between communication and art. She recorded the theme “Eu”, which was composed by her for the Eudora fragrance, by Boticário, and added to her solo album. She also plans to record an extended version for the “Vivre” line music theme, from l’Occitane Brasil, as well as for the jingle created for Bradesco and titled “Pé de vento”.
Zanna documented some of her cases in the book “Sound Branding: The Life Track of Brands” (“A vida Sonora das Marcas!” – Ed. Matrix, 2015), the first of its kind to be published in Latin America about Sound Branding strategies in advertisement.
At the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic, in 2020, the artist produced a music video with the participation of almost 100 people. The participants sent scenes of their lives recorded with smartphones using the song “Se” (from the Zanna album) as background music, which invites the question: “What if we stop…?” She prepares the second solo album.
