Music Singer/Songwriter Pop World music Summer events

Born in Bahía, Brazil, Xenia França started her career in 2007 singing sambas and MPB classics.

França has provided vocals to a number of bands and released her first solo album, Xenia, in 2017. A prominent member of Brazil’s art scene that aims to revive and spread Afro-Brazilian culture through music, Xenia features Portuguese vocals and navigates between pop, electronic and jazz sounds along with African rhythmic nuances, specifically the percussive rhythms from Bahía.

Her music talks about the existence, beauty and power of black women and is known for giving a voice to female empowerment and the fight against racism.

“Songs that overflow with awareness and

sensuality, without neglecting the cultural

richness of their country of origin [...]

XENIA FRANÇA has her own speeck,

strong and committed, with

racism as the main enemy to beat”

- Borja Coquillat from Atonal

“Anyone who has had the chance to see her

in action[...] is impressed by a presence that

fills the stage with her beauty,

resourcefullness and a deep voice”

-Adriana Ferreia from Marie Claire
