Brazilian Soulstress Luísa Maita Returns to North America

One of the real gems to come out of Brazil last year was Luísa Maita's debut album Lero-Lero. Sexy and soulful, the young singer injected new life into traditional Brazilian styles. We liked it so much, it made our Top Ten Latin Records of 2010 list last year. We weren't the only ones to praise the album, though. NPR praised Maita as an exciting "new voice of Brazil" and she recently won "Best New Artist" at the 2011 Brazilian Music Awards.

Now she is back in the North America and will be hitting up cities across the continent. Don't miss her.
