Sultry, seductive and infused with that inimitable samba swing, the music of Luísa Maita embodies the modern spirit of Brazil. She has been called the "New Voice of Brazil" by NPR and recently was recognized as Brazil's "Best New Artist" by the Brazilian Music Awards, the equivalent of a GRAMMY. Inspired by the bustling urban life found in her native city of São Paulo, her music 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. 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.
