Luísa Sobral performs in Lagos for a different concert: a journey through her 5 albums, unpublished themes, and songs she wrote for other artists. A concert without a script in which she will be accompanied only by guitarist Manuel Rocha.
The successful and surprising last album, ‘Rosa‘ (2018), drew the best reviews from the specialized press and took Luísa through landscapes where she had never acted: Italy, Poland, Uruguay, Australia, and Japan, to which Spain and Portugal join, prominent festivals and venues (Bons Sons, Sol da Caparica, La Mar de Música, WOMADelaide, among others) who welcomed the tour of what was considered their most mature work with open arms.
After the cycle of ‘Rosa‘, Luísa prepared a different and intimate show that will debut next November 6th at the Centro Cultural de Lagos. Accompanied on stage by guitarist Manuel Rocha, Luísa will start a journey that crosses her 5 albums, unpublished themes and songs she composed for other artists.
Luísa Sobral is one of the most important composers and singers of the new generation of Portuguese musicians. It debuted in 2011 with the edition of ‘The Cherry on My Cake’, an album well received by the public and critics. There was ‘There’s A Flower In My Bedroom’ (2013), with guests like Jamie Cullum, António Zambujo and Mário Laginha, the children’s album ‘Lu-Pu-I-Pi-Sa-Pa‘ (2014) and ‘Luísa‘ (2016) that was recorded in Los Angeles by the prestigious American producer Joe Henry. In 2018, he edited ‘Rosa‘, produced by Catalan Raul Refree, a delicate album based on an intimate record where Luísa risked new territories in composition and arrangements. ‘Maria do Mar’, ‘O Melhor Presente’ and the breathtaking duet with Salvador Sobral ‘Só Um Beijo’ are just some examples.
Over the past few years, Luísa has seen her side as a composer enhanced. In addition to composing the winning song for the Eurovision Song Contest in 2017, with the theme ‘Amar pelos Dois‘, performed by brother Salvador Sobral, he has written regularly for artists such as Ana Moura, António Zambujo, Carolina Deslandes, Marco Rodrigues, Mayra Andrade, Sara Correia, among others.
