Luísa Sobral’s reunion with the stage will take place on the 6th of October at the Teatro da Trindade INATEL, in Lisbon. Initially scheduled for May, the closing concert of the ‘Rosa’ tour was postponed due to the pandemic. Tickets purchased for May remain valid for October 6th.
After a successful tour of national and international venues and festivals – Australia, Spain, Italy, Japan, Poland, Uruguay – Luísa Sobral is preparing to end the tour of her latest album ‘Rosa‘ with a special concert in a place that has both intimate and iconic: the Teatro da Trindade INATEL, in Lisbon. It will take place on October 6 at 9 pm, respecting all recommendations and standards issued by the General Health Directorate (DGS).
Edited in late 2018, ‘Rosa‘, was warmly received by the public and critics. Produced by the prestigious Catalan musician and producer Raul Refree (who signed works by Sílvia Pèrez Cruz, Rosalía and Rocío Márquez), ‘Rosa‘ is 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 examples.
Live, an original formation has enchanted audiences: at the voice of Luísa, Manuel Rocha‘s guitar and a trio of woodwinds composed of Gil Gonçalves on the tuba, Angelo Caleira on the horn and Sérgio Charrinho on the flugelhorn come together on the stage of the Teatro da Trindade.
Luísa Sobral is one of the most important composers and singers of the new generation of Portuguese musicians. It debuted in 2011 with ‘The Cherry on My Cake‘, followed by ‘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) which was recorded in Los Angeles, by the prestigious American producer Joe Henry.
She performed at important events such as WOMADelaide, Barcelona Jazz Festival, La Mar de Música in Cartagena, London Jazz Festival, Cully Jazz and SXSW in Texas. Over the past few years, Luísa has seen her facet as a composer highlighted: in addition to composing the winning song of the Eurovision Song Contest in 2017, with the theme ‘Amar aos Dois‘ performed by her brother Salvador Sobral, she has written regularly for artists such as Ana Moura, António Zambujo, Carolina Deslandes, Marco Rodrigues, Mayra Andrade, Sara Correia, among others.
