"The daughter of 
bossa
 with a crystal voice"



 Brazilian Bossa Nova  

Kay Lyra, a sensational  singer, who is  emerging as one of the daughters  of  Bossa Nova is bringing her Brazilian sounds to New York City. Kay sings with elegance and charm. She has captured audiences with her precise, pure voice, and impeccable phrasing. 
 
The music critic Nelson Motta labeled her, “The daughter of bossa with a crystal voice" in an inevitable reference to her musician/composer father, Bossa Nova veteran/founder Carlos Lyra.
"Not only her pure voice will get your attention but also her sensibility when pronouncing each word she sings. As an authentic interpret of Bossa Nova, she makes you dive deep inside Bossa and brings out the feelings of joy; she creates a deep connection with her musical roots, Joao Gilberto,  and her life teacher, her father Carlos Lyra, a wonderful Brazilian Bossa Nova Composer" (by Madalena Sousa/Producer).
 
Kay has performed on stage with Bossa Nova icons Roberto Menescal, Durval Ferreira, Mauricio Einhorn, Wanda Sá, BebetoCastilho (Tamba Trio) Sergio Ricardo, Leila Pinheiro, João Donato, and musicians such as Léo Gandelman, Márcio Montarroyos, Marcos Suzano, Chiquito Braga, Nivaldo Ornelas, Jean Pierre Zannella, Mauricio Maestro (Boca Livre), Jessé Sadock, among others and recorded with Naná Vasconscelos, Pery Ribeiro, Gilson Peranzzetta, Joyce and Eric Rigler.
 
In Brazil, Kay recorded her first solo album Influência do Jazz, which was subsequently released in Japan. Lyra then produced her indie album, Kandagawa. All with arrangements that reflect her bossa nova roots. The other half of the CD emphasizes her own innovative material which ranges from original songs in Portuguese, as well as a bossa folk, a composition based on an Indian chant in Tupi-guaraní, and a song she wrote for the Dorothy Parker poem, "Interior." 
 
Kay also participated in the film/documentary "Coisa Mais Linda" from Paulo Thiago, about the history of Bossa Nova, filmed in Rio de Janeiro, featuring all the great names of that movement such as João Donato, Johnny Alf, Leny Andrade, Roberto Menescal,Alaíde Costa, Carlos Lyra, Billy Blanco, Sergio Ricardo and so on.
