Brazil’s hottest new artist, Luísa Maita, is set to launch a coast to coast North American tour starting in August.
Beloved by fans and critics across the globe, Luísa is hailed as the “New Voice of Brazil” by NPR and was recently awarded as the “Best New Artist” at the 2011 Brazilian Music Awards, Brazil’s equivalent to a GRAMMY. Sultry, seductive and infused with that inimitable samba swing, Luísa’s music embodies the modern spirit of Brazil.
After exploding onto the international music scene last summer with her debut album Lero-Lero, released on Cumbancha Discovery, and earning the #1 spots on iTunes & Amazon world sales charts and CMJ radio charts, Luísa brought her winning sound direct to fans on a tour of the US and Canada. With numerous sold-out shows, stunning reviews in the New York Times, Boston Phoenix, Washington Post and thousands of happy music lovers, the tour was a smashing success. Luísa Maita’s upcoming tour brings her to outdoor venues and festivals, theaters and intimate clubs including Stern Grove in San Francisco, Salmon Arm Folk Festival in British Columbia, the Chicago World Music Festival, Dakota Jazz Club in Minneapolis, and the Highline Ballroom in New York City.
