Born in a musician’s family , Bianca has experienced music as a natural part of her environment since the tenderest age. Having decided to study piano from ten years old onward, she started out taking classes in her native city of Rio de Janeiro, eventually joining the UFRJ (Rio University) BA course in 2001.
By that time she had already begun touring around the globe backing up her own father (famous Brazilian composer Egberto Gismonti) as well as experimenting with different group ensembles (“Ofelex”,”Trio Arcano”) and soon later consolidating a piano duo formation alongside college peer and close friend Claudia Castelo Branco. Together they’ve been running the successful “Duo Gisbranco” with two acclaimed albums recorded , followed by international touring schedule.
The last three years have been quite inspirational regarding her own compositions, hence this new project took place primarily encouraged by Bianca’s husband, Julio Falavigna. As they jammed on drumset and piano for fun,came a decision to make recordings which led to the birth of “Sonhos de Nascimento“.
