Luísa Sobral opens the doors to the solar pop of “DanSando”, her sixth album of originals. Produced by Latin Grammy winner Tó Brandileone, the album was recorded between Lisbon and São Paulo.
Lightly exploring the lands of pop, and never losing its jazz tones, “DanSando” is filled with eleven original themes, guided by the need to sing about love. Luísa’s new record adventure is an intimate and personal work, but also socially conscious and involved, bringing together songs that are assumed to be more luminous and in which love is the raw material. An album that the author admits “I’ve wanted to do for a long time: an ode to life”. “Gosto de Ti”, the first single, has proved to be a real hit, having quickly surpassed 150,000 views on YouTube.
Considered one of the most important singers and songwriters of the new generation of Portuguese musicians, Luísa Sobral debuted in 2011 with “The Cherry on My Cake”, followed by “There’s A Flower In My Bedroom” (2013), with guests such as Jamie Cullum, António Zambujo and Mário Laginha, “Lu-Pu-I-Pi-Sa-Pa” (2014) and “Luísa” (2016), produced by Joe Henry (Madonna, Elvis Costello). “Rosa”, produced by Raul Refree (Silvia Pères Cruz, Rosalía, Rocío Márquez) arrives in 2018.
Her character as a composer stands out, composing for artists such as Ana Moura, António Zambujo, Sara Correia, Mayra Andrade, among others. In 2017, she signs “Amar Pelos Dois”, a theme interpreted by her brother Salvador Sobral, winner of the Eurovision Song Contest.
She expands her creative horizons again in 2020: she releases a single with the Spanish singer Zahara and premieres “O Avesso da Canção”, a podcast about the art of writing songs. The following year, she unveils “Camomile” (2021), a mini album of lullabies.
In this concert, Luísa will be accompanied on stage by Manuel Rocha on guitar, António Quintino on bass and double bass and Carlos Miguel Antunes on drums.
