Classics of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes, in the tradition of Joao Gilberto, as well as the music of other well known composers of this Brazilian style are part of her repertoire.

Jennifer Zea has shared the stage with renowned performers of the European and South American Jazz and World music scene, such as Nicolas Folmer, Pablo Gil and Djalma Correa.
