Brazilian songstress, Luisa Maita, gave a smoldering performance on 22 September 2011 at Chicago’s Lincoln Hall as part of the 13th Annual World Music Festival. A bellwether of modern Brazilian Samba music, Maita delivered flawlessly with  an elegant voice that sailed smoothly over a mix of danceable and downtempo rythms, bass and drum beats, all in a delicately fierce, yet fey manner. Singing tracks from her solo debut album,Lero-Lero, Maita has said that the album “is inspired by the struggle of the Brazilian people for life.” If her endeavor is to touch her people with her sound, then her dream is coming true in a most beautiful way.
