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, 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 Maitas 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. 

After the release of her first album Lero-Lero in the US, NPR's All Things Considered

called Luísa "The New Voice of Brazil." Her first North American tour in 2010 was well-received with reviews in The New York Times, The Washington Post and Boston Globe. In Brazil, the album made the list of best albums of 2010 – in both 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.
