About Luísa Maita

In life and in music, Brazilian singer and songwriter Luísa Maita likes to take it slow. It has been over six years since she released her critically acclaimed debut album, Lero-Lero. In that time, Luísa has toured the world numerous times, received the Brazilian equivalent of the GRAMMY for Best New Artist, had two of her songs featured in the Academy Award-winning film Boyhood, collaborated with Daniel Hunt of Ladytron, recorded with Da Lata, shared the stage with some of the biggest stars in Brazilian music, and lent her voice to the opening ceremony of the recent Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Fans waiting impatiently for Maita's second album to be finished might have felt like they were in that classic ketchup commercial...the one where the song "Anticipation" plays as the ketchup makes its way oh so slowly down the interior of the bottle. The wait is finally over, and it has definitely been worth it. Fio da Memória, which means "Thread of Memory" in Portuguese, will be released September 23rd on Cumbancha. The album bridges sultry downtempo electronica and Brazilian popular music to boldly redefine not only Luísa's personal style, but also the soundscape of modern Brazil.

Those who know Luísa Maita personally will notice that she seems to exist in a different time dimension from the rest of us. Ironically, her home city of São Paulo, one of the world's most frenetic and over-populated metropolises, is her main source of artistic inspiration. As the city rushes around her in a buzzing hive of activity, Luísa floats gently through the madness. Like a slow motion figure in a high-speed film, she sits back and soaks it all in, wisely observing the world as it dashes by.
"The record is about what Brazil is today aesthetically, in this electronic age," notes Luísa. The songs on Fio da Memória address themes of love, spirituality, heritage, and cultural history. Intense and sensual, with a warm, languid sound, the songs often have a dream-like quality that do not seem to follow a particular narrative logic yet are filled with poetic resonance.

"It is a very subjective, personal and emotional record," according to Luísa. "I tried not to limit myself to a certain musical style, and in this diversity there is unity. I wanted to revisit the Brazilian rhythms and other sounds that I have heard growing up from a contemporary, electronic and urban perspective."
To achieve her goals, Luísa worked with some of Brazil's hottest, cutting-edge talents. She started the production with Tejo Damasceno, a DJ and electronic musician who helped formulate Luísa's new sound. For the second phase, she worked with bass player and producer Zé Nigro, who took a more organic approach. After they recorded the instruments, they applied filters, beats and effects, working their way back to electronic music through a different route.

The album's first single, the title track "Fio da Memória", was released August 12th and a music video of the song will be made public on September 16th. With a funky bass synth line underpinning Luísa's breathy voice, the song began its life closer to a traditional Brazilian samba, but during the recording process it underwent a complete transformation. The lyrics muse on how Brazil's past is redefined by every generation. "You’ll weep / A thousand years from now / Your story was stolen / By someone who loved you too deeply and also wept / Vile thread of memory."

A second single, the dreamy "Na Asa" (On Wings), will be released on September 9th. The song has an airy melody and lyrics that tell of a boy from the outskirts of São Paulo who, against all odds, transcends the struggles of his daily life and fulfills his dreams. Inspired by the intense electronic sounds of Björk and Kanye West, the beats are reminiscent of a Brazilian samba school's drumming.

The release of Fio da Memória will be supported by a North American tour that begins September 23rd, and includes two appearances at the prestigious Austin City Limits Festival. The tour also includes shows in Montreal, New York City, Boston, Toronto, Chicago, Minneapolis, Oakland and other dates to be announced soon.

As the saying goes, "All good things come to those who wait," and that is certainly the case with Luísa Maita's striking second album. The record confirms Luísa's reputation as one of her country's most talented and innovative songwriters and provides a captivating platform for her distinctive and mesmerizing voice.

Como compositora Luísa Maita é uma cronista que participa da cidade, caminha pelas avenidas e vielas do centro e da periferia à procura de estalos poéticos e melódicos.

A intérprete Luísa usa a sensualidade de forma sutil como forma de transmitir sensações, como instrumento de comunicação, tendo encon-trado a medida certa para, em suas próprias palavras, “atingir o máximo de expressão com o mínimo de afetação”.

O lançamento do álbum Lero-Lero em 2010 foi um marco na sua carreira, tendo figurado nas principais listas de melhores discos do ano no Brasil. Nos EUA, alcançou o 1º lugar em vendas na Amazon e no iTunes, na categoria música latina e o 2º lugar na categoria world music na Amazon.

Duas faixas do álbum, Desencabulada e Lero-Lero fizeram parte da trilha do filme Boyhood indicado ao Oscar de melhor filme em 2015.

Durante sua primeira turnê pelos EUA e Canada, em 2010, foi chamada de “a Nova Voz do Brasil" pela rádio NPR.

Em 2011 foi premiada como Artista Revelação do Ano no renomado Prêmio da Música Brasileira e apresentou-se em importantes festivais de verão na Europa e em 26 cidades americanas.
No ano seguinte, se apresentou novamente nos EUA, inclusive na conferência anual do Google Zeitgeist. Participou da coletânea Tribute to Caetano Veloso, álbum em homenagem aos 70 anos do artista e teve ainda gravada por Maria Gadú a música Axé Acapella, composta em parceria com Dani Black.

Em 2013, fez shows no Brasil e participou de projetos coletivos como Na Mira da Música Brasileira, ao lado de artistas como Lucas Santtana, Juliano Holanda, Jam da Silva e Juliana Perdigão e Homenagem a Amado Maita (seu pai, um inspirado músico e compositor precocemente falecido em 2005) ao lado de intérpretes como Ed Motta, BNegão e Tiganá Santana.

Em 2014, realizou nova turnê nos EUA, incluindo casas como o Lincoln Center em NY. No mesmo ano, participou, como solista convidada, de dois memoráveis concertos em comemoração aos 80 anos de João Donato no Rio e em São Paulo.

No ano passado, além de realizar shows pelo Brasil, dedicou-se principal-mente a compor novas canções e finalizar a gravação do seu segundo disco.
