���Her voice is soulful and jazzy and the spirit of S��o Paulo gives the music a tropical edge that is vibrant and enticing.��� KCRW, LOS ANGELES
���Airy and infectious, her fiercely efficient arrangements get the most from her capoeira rhythms and muscular chord changes.��� THE GLOBE AND MAIL
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.
