When you first listen to the jazz band Baiana you may think they are from Brazil but are from Liverpool, U.K. The band consists of lead singer Laura Doyle who spent several years living in Brazil and loved the music and the people of Rio de Janeiro. The music is a mix of jazz, funk, and pop. The band's name Baiana means Bahia women. The band has caught the attention of well-known BBC DJ and Brownswood Recordings owner, Gilles Peterson who loves them.
