A New Classic
I don't know if the term neo-Tropicalismo really does justice to the music on Luisa Maita's debut album, but almost any of the songs here could slip easily between the tracks of Beleza Tropicale. Maita's vocals are the focus here, but these are complete songs and the musical settings for the vocals bring their own delights. This is one of the best new albums in any genre that I've heard in the last few years. The more I listen, the more I want to hear from Luisa Maita.
