Nanny Assis was born in the northeastern Brazilian city of Salvador, Bahia, in 1969. One of Brazilís first cities, with predominant African influences, Salvador is the birthplace of some of the countryís most remarkable music creations. That, in part, explains why Nanny has music running through his veins, making him an outstanding singer, a terrific drummer/percussionist, and a talented songwriter who has broadly touched hearts and souls through musical expressions that go beyond comprehension.
Anybody who sees Nanny performing immediately feels that music for him is more than just a career. Somewhat, it is how he translates rhythms and notes into pure essence Ė often snatching audiences away, and other times energizing them enough so they can stand up and dance ďand sweat until you canít sweat no more,Ē like Bob Marley once said. His ability to make any kind of music sound smooth makes Nanny a notable and gifted artist. And thatís what he is, a gifted artist.
Since 1986, when he began his successful professional career, Nanny Assis has played with amazing artists like Vinicius Cantauria, Eumir Deodato, and John Patitucci. Yet, despite the grandeur of the folks with whom heís sided, Nanny has always managed to find his forte. With a great ability to perform Bossa Nova, Brazilian Jazz, Forro and a myriad of Afro-Brazilian sounds, Nanny has cheered audiences around the world and has shown particular skills in engaging the public with personal charisma and unique stage interaction.
