Listen to Valdiza Moura

In the mood for a little “taste” of Bossa Nova? Well now you can satsify your hunger with good food and better, yet, great music to go along with it! Thanks to the folks at the Birch Street Bistro in Roslindale, Sunday night has become Bossa Nova Night starring vocalist Valdiza Moura, a local favorite who continues to win over  both audiences and music critics wherever she goes. She is best known for her ability to convey intense emotion, and yet with a voice that, in the process, still manages to maintain its over-all delicate, lyrical character that her listeners find so aesthetically pleasing. She is backed by a band whose membership represents a wide and varied array of cultures and music genres, many of which influence their over-all sound, adding additonal musical interest to the end product.

Moura made a name for herself in her native Brazil early on by placing 2nd in a major music competition at the age of 16. She continued to develop her career there, recording for commercials and political campaign ads, serving as back up to numerous prominent Brazilian musicians, performing and touring, at times as a soloist, with distinguished music ensembles, and appearing as a featured performer at major cultural events throughout Brazil. In 2001 she came to the US, and has been actively performing throughout New England ever since. She has appeared at such notable venues as the Museum of Fine Arts, Harvard University, MIT, Umass Dartmouth, Boston College, and Bunker Hill Community College, taken part in the Rhode Island Latin American Film Festival and the Lowell Folk Festival, and had the honor of sharing the stage with renowned vocalist Virginia Rodrigues at Johnny D’s. Moura is a regularly featured guest at the special performances held by New England’s various music schools and is invited to sing at virtually every single Brazilian cultural event held throughout the area.  

Depending upon your food mood, the Birch Street Bistro’s menu is designed to please a wide range of appetites. You can enjoy a lighter meal along the lines of burgers, pizza, or salad or opt for more extensive fare. Some interesting appetizers and entrees include  Fresh Apple Salad (mixed greens, bacon, gorgonzola, candied walnuts, with an apple cider vinaigrette), Sausage (with parmesan risotto), Four Cheese Fondue (with grilled garlic pita bread), Grilled Fillet Mignon (with melting fig butter, sauteed spinach and roasted potatoes), and Braised Lamb (with a ricotta filled gnocchi). So, the next time that craving for a little Bossa Nova emerges, just head on over to the Birch Street Bistro on any given Sunday evening where Valdiza Moura and her band will satisfy that urge in no time!
