Violinist Julia Bomfim, who hails from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, begun her music studies at the age of 7. Born into a family of artists, the violin became the focal point of her early childhood. Julia graduated from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UNIRIO) in 2013, with a Bachelor of Music degree.
Striving to continue her musical studies she moved to the U.S. in 2014 and received her Masters degree in Violin Performance from Longy School of Music of Bard College two years later.
During this period living in Massachusetts, Julia has also studied Jazz and improvisation. She is currently finishing a Jazz certificate program at New England Conservatory continuing education department.
Her main focus is now Brazilian music. She has been actively performing Choro music among other styles from Brazil.
Her unique playing incorporates a variety of influences, from classical, tango, choro and jazz.
“Being further away from home I found inside me a stronger need to compose and perform Brazilian music and Choro more actively. I feel this is the most honest way I can use all my roots and musical influences to express my personal artistic voice.”Buy Tickets
