Brazilian bass player Poliana is a leading force in versatility. Often sought out for her ability to transition riffs into any sound, she is a highly pursued artist for studio sessions. A fiercely passionate free spirit, her work is global as she has toured several times in various world tours. Poliana spent time in Europe, Brazil, and the US, and her sound is widely eclectic and borrows from groundworks of funk, rock and soul.
Poliana’s trajectory has been a steady climb to larger and larger audiences across the globe. Having performed with and musically directed artists from continents ranging from North America, South America, Europe and Asia, she has established herself as a global artist capable of blending her tone and style into different genres and cultures.
As a resident bass player for a TV program in Brazil titled, Adnight Show, she worked Rede Globo not only as musician but as arranger and composer. She performed with artists like Anitta, Ivete Sangalo, Daniela Mercury, Emicida and Ludmilla to name a few. Her duality in roles provided a vast array of knowledge in the world of music markets across international regions.
A world traveler across her tours, she has performed with O Teatro Magico from Brazil, who specializes in poetry, dance, politics, and theatre. In Europe, she toured with Berg. Since moving to Los Angeles, Poliana has played with artists like Willow Smith, Adam Lambert, Avril Lavigne, Travis Barker, Naia Izumi, Nona Hendryx, Lari Basilio, and Moein.
She played at festivals like the Cancun Jazz Festival, Black Women’s Rock Event honoring Betty Davis (accompanying Nik West), and NAMM at the Yamaha grand stage. She has also been featured in Fender Promo videos, and continues to be in high demand both in performance spaces and session spaces.
Poliana has an upcoming album in 2021.
