EvaEva is a world music artist, singer,

"From as early as I can remember, the rhythms and melodies of Brazil have been a listening necessity - kind of like a need for water or food, and I can NOT stay seated when samba is playing! Indian music and culture were not far behind in becoming part of my life too (highlighted by the always-fabulous Bhangra beat and Bollywood style), and so that has also taken an important role in the sound and overall experience of my work.
Through her parents, (Googie and Tom Coppola) EvaEva was exposed to a broad spectrum of great musicians. To name a few; The Average White Band ('77 Montreux Jazz Festival), Herbie Mann , Todd Rundgren, Chick Corea, Pat Matheny, The Brecker Brothers, Steve Gadd, Jan Hammer, Manu DiBango, Eumir Deodato, Sammy Figueroa, Airto Moreira and Flora Purim , Hermeto Pascoal, and Creed Taylor.

90’s, EvaEva could be seen spinning hot tracks at the Palladium,
