05 Apr Luísa Sobral tours the new album in Spain this week.
Luísa Sobral starts her Spanish tour this Saturday with shows in Castellón, Madrid, Barcelona and Pontevedra. The return is scheduled for July with several festival appearances. ‘Rosa’, the new album, is available in the stores in France, Germany, Spain, UK and Japan and digitally worldwide.
Luísa Sobral is one of the most important composers and singers of the new generation of Portuguese musicians. She debuted in 2011 with ‘The Cherry on My Cake’, a welcomed album which highlighted at the prestigious BBC ‘Later…with Jools Holland’. It was followed by ‘There’s a Flower in My Bedroom’ (2013), where featured special guests such as Jamie Cullum, António Zambujo and Mário Laginha, ‘Lu-Pu-I-Pi-Sa-Pa’ (2014) and ‘Luísa’ (2016) that was recorded in Los Angeles by the prestigious American producer Joe Henry.
She performed in important events such as the Barcelona Jazz Festival, the Cartagena Jazz Festival, the London Jazz Festival, Cully Jazz, SXSW in Texas, among others, and toured in countries such as Spain, France, Turkey, Israel, Germany, Switzerland, Luxembourg, USA, Morocco, South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Brazil, Uruguay, among others.
In 2017 Luísa composed ‘Amar pelos Dois’ the winning theme of the Eurovision Song Contest, interpreted by her brother Salvador Sobral.
For the production of her fifth album ‘Rosa’, she invited the Catalan Raül Refree, one of the most prestigious producers and multi-instrumentalists in Spain. In addition to voice and guitar, Luísa and Raul classical instruments: a trio of woodwinds and classic percussion. ‘Rosa’ is the most personal, mature and intimate album by Luísa Sobral. The beauty of the compositions is enhanced by the stripping of the arrangements and the creative bound between Luisa and Refree.
For the new tour, Luísa Sobral has a new line up: a quintet with guitar, french horn, tuba and flugelhorn.
