She was born in Natal and after establishing her presence in the northeast of Brazil, she moved in 2007 to Rio de Janeiro where she lived for 10 years and captured the attention of listeners and the critics world with her interpretation of the classic Brazilian songbook.

Liz’s influence of several Brazilian rhythms (such as coco, baião and samba) and the American jazz, work perfectly with the samba-jazz flavor presented throughout the album.
