Bianca Fachel, a versatile artist, singer-songwriter, filmmaker, and entrepreneur originally from Brazil and now based in Ireland, is a true creative force with a diverse range of projects, pioneering the new scene of music in the regenerative economy. Her primary focus lies in crafting her own original compositions, music production, collaborations, educational programs, and knowledge exchange.

Bianca’s talents have graced stages in her hometown of Porto Alegre, South Brazil, as well as in Ireland and abroad. She has mesmerized audiences at prestigious festivals like the Montreux Jazz Festival, Sligo Jazz Festival, Shawbrook Dance School, Bray Jazz Festival, Dublin Peace Festival, Havana Club Festival, and has shared her music through busking experiences in Ireland, Brazil, Germany, and Switzerland.

A significant milestone in Bianca’s career was when two of her original songs, “Keep on Moving” and “The Way Back Home,” were chosen for inclusion in the Irish Featured Movie “Writing Home,” earning recognition and nominations at the 29th Galway Film Fleadh Cinema Festival. This movie is set to be released worldwide on various platforms.

In addition to her artistic endeavors, Bianca pursued education in Sound Engineering and Music Festival Management at Sound Training College in Dublin. In 2019, she established her own home studio, Birdland Music Studio, and furthered her musical education by taking a course on Songwriting: Writing the Lyrics at Berklee College of Music.

Bianca’s musical compositions are a rich blend of influences from diverse cultures and genres, incorporating elements from Samba, Bossa Nova, MPB (Popular Brazilian Music), Brazilian Soul Music, Tropicália, African rhythms, and Irish Traditional Music, resulting in a truly authentic and distinctive style.

In March 2021, Bianca made history as the first independent artist to produce and launch online shows featuring her original songs. Her debut show, “Land of Dreams – a journey to inspiration Vol. 1,” received widespread acclaim, followed by another successful online show titled “Timeless River – A wrinkle in time Vol. 2” in April 2021.

In 2022, Bianca expanded her horizons into event production by organizing a Hybrid Music Festival called “Music in the Forest,” placing a strong emphasis on environmentally conscious practices. Additionally, she made a captivating appearance on the Cúltír TV Programme on TG4, representing Roscommon. Towards the end of the year, Bianca received an Arts Council grant, facilitated through Athlone Family Resource Center in Ireland, to collaborate with women from diverse cultural backgrounds and age groups. She worked on the “Bean Feasa” project, recording and producing 10 songs by herself and participants from the community.

But that’s not all! Bianca is thrilled to share that she has been nominated as one of the finalists for the .IE Digital Awards! Her project, “Music in The Forest Low Environmental Music Festival,” produced at Birdland Music Studio, has been recognised in the category of Digital Sustainability. It’s an honour to be acknowledged for their efforts in promoting sustainability through digital means.  

And the good news keeps on coming! Bianca is also thrilled to announce her collaboration on an exciting new project called “Ethnic Echoes,” funded by Coimisiún na Meán. Together with Vanda Brandy, a radio presenter at Shannonside FM, and Daniela Rana, a project researcher from UCD (University College Dublin), they’ll be producing a captivating radio documentary.  

In 2024, Bianca Fachel is set to release her highly anticipated album titled “Time Machine.” This album is a testament to her dedication to crafting original compositions and reflects the culmination of her diverse musical influences and experiences where her passion for music continues to thrive and evolve. The album is being recorded at her own Birdland Music Studio, including collaborations with several musicians from Ireland and abroad.
