Eliane Elias, a musician in Brazil, has had a career some might call “blessed,” though it was forged with hard work and dedication that went along with immense talent. The pianist/composer/singer is a star of jazz and Latin music and this spring picked up her second Grammy for her “Mirror, Mirror” recording (Candid Records).
As pandemic restrictions lessen, Elias is happy to be back on the road performing. (She has toured in 71 countries over the years.) Her schedule on Sunday brings her to Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival at Saratoga Performing Arts Center where she is among the headliners.
