Caipirinha is a strong traditional Brazilian drink prepared with cachaça. Here’s someone just as intoxicating: singer Luisa Maita. She’s topping the world music charts this year with her new album on Cumbancha Discovery, “Lero-Lero”. NPR has coined her the “New Voice of Brazil”.
This album is stirred not shaken with bossa nova vibes, seductive vocals and jazzy beats. Luisa’s music is emotional, deep, and very pleasing – just the thing to keep you warm this winter. She may be a newcomer to the world of music, but she knows what she’s doing. Check out Luisa Maita and more great world sounds during Axis Mundi, Tuesday evenings beginning at 8:30 on KZSC.
