Born in France to her Mozambican mother and Guinea-Bissauan father, Loide (pronounced Loy-deh) grew up in California, at the intersection of seemingly disparate cultural expressions. With only hymnals, doo-wop, and soul allowed in her observant Christian home, these sonic styles formed the first strands of her melodic DNA. Later, she would fuse them with the Afro-luso melodies and verse she heard in the homes of family and friends, the hymns she sang in Portuguese in church, and the European classical compositions she studied and performed in school. On track after track of her first full-length in-studio album In Time, Loide leverages these references to brilliant effect, code switching and interchanging English and Portuguese with dexterity. In the process, her story and sound stream past category and convention. Adding dimension to this narrative, Loide oft relays the stories in song of the immigrant struggle through her personal and professional lense, as an immigration attorney. This is life, this is Afro-Luso rhythms fused with African-American blues. This is jazz with a side of saudade. Loide will be joined on stage by her jazz trio.
