Luisa Maita at the Regattabar!

Yes, she returns! Anyone who has talked to me about music has heard me rave about this Brazilian singer. Her first album, still gets heavy rotation in my iPod, but a new album is long overdue!

From the Regattabar Website:


Sultry, seductive and infused with that inimitable samba swing, the music of Luísa Maita embodies the modern spirit of Brazil. Inspired by the bustling urban life found in her native city of São Paulo, her first album, Lero-Lero, has a contemporary vibe with influences from alternative pop and downtempo electronic music melded with an acoustic foundation deeply rooted in samba, bossa nova and MPB. Fans of Bebel Gilberto, Céu and Seu Jorge will find much to love in Luísa Maita’s tropical, forward-looking sound, and her sensual yet soulful voice begs comparisons with everyone from Billie Holiday and Sade to Feist, St. Vincent and Cat Power. Hailing from a country overflowing with musical talent, Luísa Maita rises above the fray as one of the most promising young singers of her generation.

Inspired by samba, bossa nova and other classic Brazilian styles, Luísa is also heavily influenced by the cool jazz of Billie Holiday and Chet Baker, as well as pop, funk and downtempo electronic music. Her first album as a solo artist, Lero-Lero offers songs that encourage her fellow Brazilians to recognize the beauty and deeper meaning of their lives. “Its inspiration comes from the urban life of São Paulo, its ghettos and its people,” notes Luísa, “The lyrics and the aura of the album focus on the peculiarities of Brazilian daily life, culture and human condition.”

In 2006, the Brazilian singer Virgínia Rosa recorded two songs by Luisa in her album “Samba a Dois”. The songs stand out in the CD and encouraged Luisa to compose more. In 2009, Mariana Aydar released her second album with a composition of Luisa and Rodrigo Campos, “Beleza”, one of the best songs of th year by Rolling Stone Brazil magazine. Luisa also appears in four songs of Rodrigo Campos debut album “São Materus Não É Um Lugar Assim Tão Longe” and as the singer of the promotional videos for Rio 2016 Olympic games directed by Fernando Meirelles.[6] Because of these works, Luisa had some great reviews in the Brazilian press without having yet released any solo album.

After the release in US, NPR’s All Things Considered said that Luísa is “The New Voice of Brazil”[7] and “if Maita keeps making records this good, she could well be on her way to international stardom”.

On November 2010, Luísa made her first North America tour, receiving great reviews from The New York Times, The Washington Post and Boston Globe. During the tour, she also appear on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert and KCWR’s Morning Becomes Eclectic show.

In Brazil, the album figured in the list of best albums of 2010 – including the magazines Veja and Rolling Stone Brasil.

In July 2011, Luísa received the award for Best New Artist in the twenty-second edition of the renowned Brazilian Music Award and went to her first European tour playing in important festivals like Nuits du Sud in France and Musicas do Mundo in Portugal.

In August 2011, the singer returned to North America, performing 30 shows in 26 cities over 45 days and, once again, sell out festivals and concert halls, get enthusiastic review from LA Times. -

    Running a little late from work in Andover. Hope to be there by 7:15pm. Feel free to grab your ticket in the lobby and be seated if you don't see me.

    This should be a nice show. Regattabar offers drinks, but not much in the way of food. If people want to grab dinner afterward in Harvard Sq, let's meet in the lobby after the show. The Beat Hotel is a nice spot on Brattle St. with more music, and there are other options

    Final reminder! If you have not already, and would like to sit with the group, please purchase your ticket, and then send me an email by tonight, with your full name or ticket order number. I have quite a few on the list already, so it should be a fun time!

      Hi Rosita, I did get you're email, you're on the list, thx. Stacey, to be honest, parking is brutal always in Harvard Sq., but I would suggest either finding something on the street on Mt Auburn Street, or just parking in the Charles Hotel Parking Garage, underneath the Charles Hotel, for $12, with validation
