Sultry, seductive and infused with that inimitable samba swing, the music of Lu��sa Maita embodies the modern spirit of Brazil. Inspired by the bustling urban life found in her native city of S��o Paulo,
Lero-Lero has a contemporary vibe with influences from alternative pop and chilled out electronic music, but with an acoustic foundation deeply rooted in local samba, bossa nova and MPB.
Lu��sa Maita, hailed by NPR's All Things Considered as "The New Voice of Brazil", is touring the US, Canada and Mexico this November marking the first time the S��o Paulo native has toured outside of Brazil. Lu��sa has exploded onto the international music scene since the release of her debut album Lero-Lero, released on Cumbancha Discovery this summer. Within a week of the release, Lero-Lero skyrocketed to #1 on the iTunes Latin chart & #1 on Amazon's Latin Bestseller chart. Critics from National Public Radio to Huffington Post and Rolling Stone Brazil and influential tastemaker blogs have welcomed Lu��sa as a fresh new talent in Brazilian music.
Fans of Bebel Gilberto, C��u and Seu Jorge will find much to love in Lu��sa 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, Lu��sa Maita rises above the fray as one of the most promising young singers of her generation.
The purpose of this group is to bring together Brazilians and Brazilians at heart.
Brazilians and anyone else interested in Brazil, i.e. people who love our country and our culture are welcome to join us. The main language of the group is Portuguese, but English always sneaks up on us here and there.
