From 1984 until 1994, Maucha performed all over the world with legendary composer Antonio Carlos Jobim and that’s how she ended up in New York, where she has been living since 1987.

Since living in New York, Maucha has been working with her own band and participating in many recordings and shows with artists like: Randy Brecker, Slide Hampton, Claudio Roditi, Duduka Da Fonseca, Trio da Paz, Mario Adnet, Winton Marsalis, Bucky Pizzarelli and many others.

Maucha also teaches in workshops on the subject of Brazilian Music in many parts of the world spreading her expertise in phrasing and interpreting in different Brazilian Styles of Music.

“Maucha and I have travelled the world with the Banda Nova since 1984. She is a marvellous singer. Her voice is deep, rich, mysterious. It makes me long for the Brazilian forest.
Maucha is intelligent and comes from a very musical family. She is a good girl, wonderful woman, a great artist.”
