Brazilian Luísa Maita to bring Samba Swing to Santa Monica:

Santa Monica and Venice music lovers alike may want to enliven their Tuesday evening with one of Brazil’s most promising artists in Luísa Maita, who will be coming to the Townhouse, among the newest of music venues in the area, on Tuesday, Sept. 13.

The Tuesday evening show is part of Maita’s just-launched North American tour.

Touted by NPR as the “new voice of Brazil” and recently earning the “Best New Artist” honor at the Brazilian Music Awards (the country’s equivalent of a Grammy), Maita’s music is best labeled as samba swing.

Among the adjectives used in the press to describe Maita are “seductive” and “sultry.”

However, the most telling proclamation comes in the form of statistics: Maita’s debut album “Lero-Lero” claimed the top spots on the iTunes and Amazon sales charts as well as the CMI radio charts.

Maita’s music can be described as tropical yet contemporary, featuring elements of electronica, pop, and bossa nova. There is also quite the acoustic theme to Maita’s sound.

Originally from São Paulo, Brazil, Maita was born into a family with deep musical roots. Launching her career by professionally recording advertising jingles as early as age seven, Maita soon began singing at clubs in São Paulo.

Later, she would join a group called Urbanda, who released an album with her in 2003. A few years after that, Maita would be selected by Rolling Stone Brazil for its “2010 Hot List,” with her hit single “Beleza” (which she co-wrote with Rodrigo Campos), also notching high marks on the pop charts.

Maita’s show in Venice will be at 9:30 p.m. on Sept. 13. Tickets are $10 pre-sale, $15 at the door.

The Townhouse is located at 52 Windward Avenue in Venice; call 310. 392.4040, or visit www.townhousevenice.com.
