Arts Desk review

Anglo-Brazilian Nina Miranda, with her experimental fusion of bossa nova, trip hop, electro and dub, was the perfect support act ...She has a beautiful, fluid voice that veers between two microphones, one for ordinary vocals and one for strange, clacking, bird-like percussive effects, and her version of “Julia” set the tone for this joyful, timeless show.

‘Nina Miranda and her band had a warmth and spontaneity that nicely complemented
the eclectic vibe of her excellent genre-hopping debut solo album.’

"Well, what a terrific show !!!

I though the two drummers were outstanding.

And you - what energy !!

I thought what was splendid was the way you constantly engaged the audience, getting them to sing along.

They clearly had the time of their lives.

There was a scrum when you finished... Has this group recorded? It should. In complete admiration."

Quote of e-mail to Nina after seeing her and her band play at The RichMix

5th May 2015

Nina Miranda, Kari Bannermam and Helder Pack

Voice , guitar and drums.


The trio (usually a quintet) played  some of Nina's hits and fresh new material.

They used the stage as their sketch pad, and relished playing in the pristine 

acoustics of the Purcell room with it's typically well behaved- Southbank audience,
(which encourages Nina to jump out of the box.)

review by Paul Bradshaw- Straight No Chaser Magazine

Journey To The One with Nina Miranda

& Adriano Adewale took place at the House Of St Barnabas last week and they filled the Chapel with the multi-dimensional sounds of Brasil.



"The final session of the House Of St Barnabas’ summer jazz series was planned to promote a musical sensibility that spanned Brasil, Africa and London town. The first set on the night came from Nina Miranda and her Allstarbanda which featurd Ibibio Sound Machine percussionist Anselmo Netto and Ghanaian, former Osibisa guitarist, Alfred Kari Banaman alongside acoustic guitarist Mario Bakuna, bassist CH Straatmann and drummer Helder Pack.

They’d been rehearsing hard and it showed. This was their second public outing and there was bunch of new compositions. It all kicked off with ‘Honey face’ which was dedicated to Anselmo who is clearly a big influence on this, Nina’s first solo project.

The Allstarbanda was tight but relaxed and Nina fronted the whole session with a warm, airy confidence born of her experience of working both in the studio on array of projects and live with Da Lata. They dropped a loping reggae-fied version of Smoke City’s ‘Underwater Love’ where Nina deftly switched from Brazilian Portuguese and English – a definite asset that I can see her featuring in this rapidly evolving venture. After getting the audience to stand and shake their arms etc to relax she quickly realised it’s what people had wanted to do all along and basically, it all kicked off.

Jorge Ben’s ‘Cavaleiro Do Cavalo Imaculado’ was a funky rhythmic delight and one could definitely say that the vibe in the Chapel was at times euphoric. Nina & her Allstarbanda were a hard act to follow ..."
