Brazilian singer Luísa Maita will tour the United States of America, Canada and Mexico this November. The tour, which starts on November 3rd in New York City, brings the acclaimed singer to major venues across the continent, and marks the first time the São Paulo native has toured outside of Brazil.

Luísa Maita has exploded onto the international music scene since the release of her debut album Lero-Lero, released on Cumbancha Discovery this summer. Within a week of the release, Lero-Lero skyrocketed to #1 on the iTunes Latin chart and #1 on Amazon’s Latin Bestseller chart.

Critics from National Public Radio to Huffington Post and Rolling Stone Brazil and influential tastemaker blogs have welcomed Luísa as a fresh new talent in Brazilian music. Influential radio programs such as KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic and WBEZ’s Radio M have also become enchanted with Luisa’s voice, featuring her music and driving the album up the charts.
