Portuguese singer-songwriter Luísa Sobral comes to the chamber music room of the Philharmonie.
Described as “sunny, urban, nostalgic, and cheeky”, Luísa Sobral has been hailed as one of the most exciting phenomena in the frontier zone between jazz and pop.
Born in Lisbon, she now spends much of her time in New York, a city whose sounds she has adopted to create accessible jazz as witnessed on her latest album There’s A Flower In My Bedroom, which features Jamie Cullum among its guest artists. The album, a follow up to 2011’s The Cherry On My Cake, was well received with one reviewer describing Sobral’s “sharp and vivid lyrics…paired with fresh and breezy melodies, much like her bubbly personality.”
The multi-talented Sobral sings and plays guitars, harp, banjo and glockenspiel. She is supported by João Salcedo on piano and accordion, Carlos Miguel on drums and João Hasselberg on double bass and electric bass.
