Eneida Marta is one of the most genuine and vibrant African voices and a true ambassador for the music of Guinea-Bissau.

In 2006, she caught the attention of the world music giant Putumayo World Music which included her work on the compilation An Afro-Portuguese Odyssey.
That same year, Eneida Marta came in first place in a World Music contest with the song “Mindjer Dôlce Mel”, which Putumayo would also include on the compilation Acoustic Africa. In 2008, she was selected for the biggest World Music fair in the world, WOMEX, performing for over 3 thousand professionals from all over the world. A special moment that resulted in an acclaimed international tour.
This is just a summary of the path that has brought Eneida to the present day, taking her across stages from Madrid and Barcelona to Amsterdam or Vancouver, from Rome to Budapest and Mexico City, from Boston to London and Bern.
In all of them, the same emotional applause of those who find a voice full of soul, dreams, pain and joy.
