Fernanda Noronha and Peu Pereira

Artists Fernanda Noronha and Peu Pereira (born in Salvador, Brazil) perform throughout the United States in major events, shows, and festivals. They are best known for their contemporary Brazilian music with a repertoire of samba, bossa nova, “Afro-Brazilian beats,” and jazz. Fernanda Noronha conceived the show “Made in Brazil” in 2016 and modified it in 2018 with multi-instrumentalist Peu Pereira to include more songs of Brazilian popular music as well as songs of their own creation. The show won the Brazilian International Press Award in the category “Best Brazilian show in USA” in 2017.
