For Bossa Lovers



Sofia
Sofia is a 23-year old bossa singer in the Philippines. She graduated from the University of Santo Tomas with a degree in Medical Technology. She is now a licensed medical technologist.

Sofia became the featured artist in a bossa-inspired album project of Ivory Records by accident. After graduating, she was on her way to Japan to pursue her research scholarship grant to study Hematology when she was asked to help gather research materials for the project, since she was into bossa nova since she was in high school. Aside from helping out for the lyrics, CDs, and other research materials, she was also asked to submit a demo tape so that Ivory Records would know what bossa sounds like. Sofia submitted a demo tape of the song "Desafinado". The record company was impressed, and then she was tapped to be a session singer. Eventually she was chosen to be the featured artist for the album.
A sliver of glass,
A life, the sun,
A knife, a death,
The end of the run.
And the riverbank talks
of the waters of March,
It's the end of all strain,
It's the joy in your heart.
Waters of March
Breaking Up is Hard to Do
Englishman in New York
Just the Way You Are
