Here’s one more talented Brazilian woman giving us the grace of her music.
It’s hard - and unfair - to label Janine Mathias.
She was born in Brasília, Midwest Brazil (also its capital city), and started her career in Curitiba, South Brazil; but the observable manifoldness in her music doesn’t stick only to the fact that she collects influences from all those places. Janine flows through samba, jazz, rap, hip hop, MPB (which stands for “Música Popular Brasileira”, or “popular brazilian music”) and soul music, with a beautiful tone and deep figurative lyrics.
In “Filha da noite” (“Night’s child”), for example, Janine’s flow is harmonious and simple, which allows you to jam along with it and really “dive” into her cadency (to verb “to dive”, interestingly, is often used by her in many of her lyrics).
The instrumentals are not exactly jazzy like most of the songs in this playlist, but it’s loungy and smooth enough to make room for her rap-inspired melody to seduce the listener and engage them in a travel through the sea, the night, through reasons, illusions… And music, of course.

About the curator: Ana Clara Ribeiro
Music, art and entertainment have always played a big role in the life of Ana Clara Ribeiro. She grew up in Gurupi (an inland city in Tocantins, the youngest State of Brazil), listening to all kinds of music, reading, writing, watching stuff and connecting them to her personal beliefs and other ideas she read about.
As she became a lawyer and a writer, all the topics to which she is constantly exposed continued to give her insights about life, people and the universe, through the lenses of art.
Nowadays, when she isn’t analyzing lawsuits or producing content about Law, Marketing, Business or Music, she is certainly doing something related to her various personal and professional projects, always to the sound of a playlist as eclectic as her life.
