So, I mentioned to a few of my friends that I need to get back into my worldly shit, and I went to go check out the homie’s blog a few days ago, and saw this post. Perfect opportunity to get on my Brazillian grind! Chances are, Ill find myself at the Conga Room this friday!
Meet Sao Paulista, Luísa Maita, proclaimed by NPR as the “New Voice of Brazil.” Maita is beginning a North American tour, at the brink of her newest release Luísa Maita Remixed, out today [11/10]. This comes on the heels of her debut album Lero-Lero (Cumbancha Discovery), released early this past summer. Maita has already reigned #1 on Itunes Latino and Amazon’s Latin bestsellers. Remixers featured on Maita’s new release include party favors, Da Lata, Seiji, Maga Bo, amongst others. Though you might not be able to understand the dialect of this songstress captured in the video
above, “Alento,” (not remixed) you can certainly get a great taste of modern-day Sao Paulo. She will be stopping through Los Angeles’ Conga Room next friday, details below. Don’t sleep on this talented new artist. Here are some some download links given to us to give to you compliments of Maita’s label, Cumbancha Discovery. Enjoy – MikeStyles
