Nicole has her music style.
Strength and tenderness. Power and Smoothness. Joy and introspection. These are some combinations that are not easy to find in a stage artist. Nicole Salmi knows how to smoothly harmonize these fortresses from this inner connection that goes way beyond what our eyes can see.
Nicole’s performances are moments of inspirations in the pleasure of living, singing and dancing. A true invitation to each individual to dive into the waters of their own “auto mar”(self/high sea). Hits with the power and strength of “Guerreiro” and “Xango”; the depth and tenderness of “Um Doce Canto the Mulher” and “Mãe Lua”; the joy of “Bom Dia” and “Sambinha” depict the versatility and the vibration of Nicole.
With the repertoire of her 2 solo albums, Amazônia and Auto Mar, Nicole selected some songs from the new album to bring them forth to the audience.
With the conduction and the harmony of her band, which has followed her for some years, the gig goes through moments of swing, rhythm, dance, lots of inner poetry and connection to the subtle field. Three musicians compose Nicole Salmi’s band: Gui Vitali (drums), Ricardo Carneiro (guitar) e Marcos Lopes (bass).
