Luísa Sobral sets foot on AU stages for the first time this March

Portuguese singer, songwriter and composer, Luísa Sobral is performing in Australia for the first time this March, off the back of the release of her revered fifth studio album, 'Rosa'. The critically-acclaimed artist will kick off her debut tour here with multiple WOMADelaide Festival sets, before playing headline shows at Melbourne's 75 Reid St and Sydney Portugal Community Club.

Lauded far and wide as one of the most important composers and singers in a new generation of Portuguese artists, Luísa Sobral has achieved immense international success in her decade long career. Her debut LP 'The Cherry On My Cake' quickly went Platinum after spending weeks on top of local charts, whilst follow up release 'Lu-Pu-I-Pi-Sa-Pa' received Gold certification with lead single 'João' playing its way into the hearts of millions of Portuguese listeners.

Sobral's fourth, semi self-titled album 'Luísa' was a risky collaborative effort involving some of the scene's most esteemed talent. Produced by renowned American producer Joe Henry and featuring seasoned jazz musicians and multi-instrumentalists Marc Ribot, Greg Leisz, Jay Bellerose, Patrick Warren, David Piltch and Levon Henry, the LP was immediately declared as one of 2016's best albums by a slew of Portuguese critics.

Having performed at a multitude of festivals and events in over 15 countries including Austin's SXSW, Barcelona Jazz Festival, London Jazz Festival, and a performance on 'Later…with Jools Holland', Luísa has collected a mass of loyal fans from across the globe. She has received two Globos de Ouro nominations (The Portuguese equivalent of The Golden Globes), and received a Commander of the Order of Merit from the Portuguese President together with her brother, after becoming the first first-ever Portuguese act to win the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest with her career defining composition 'Amar pelos dois'.
