A multitude of styles and languages has influenced Gisele Duque's all-embracing style, ranging from bossa nova and samba to soul and rock n' roll.

Her versatility and charm can carry her from an intimate show with a small crowd to a fervent carnival.
Gisele Duque started her singing career at the age of 12, performing at restaurants, private parties, and weddings. She spent this time hoping and was eager for something bigger. When this hope came to fruition, it took her from her home in Brazil to tour through China, Hong Kong and Macau. The culmination of this tour saw her living at sea, performing for Celebrity Cruise Lines and bringing her music to over 13 different countries.
