42-58 St. George's Street
Portuguese singer, composer, guitarist and poet Lula Pena returns following the January release of her new Crammed album, Archivo Pittoresco.
Lula’s voice is haunting, her guitar style unique and her approach to her music deeply emotional and intense, taking in folk blues, flamenco, French chanson, fado and bossa nova.
Archivo Pittoresco consists of thirteen beautiful tracks, with lyrics and poems by herself and others, from Manos Hadjidakis, Vileta Parra to Belgian surrealist Scutenaire. She sings in Portuguese, French, English, Spanish, Greek and Italian and takes us on an extraordinary journey – as the last track on the album suggests - 'Come Wander with Me'.
This event is part of Norfolk & Norwich Festival.
Tickets on sale to the public on Thursday 2 March.
‘Songs are suffused with a bleak loveliness; over graceful acoustic guitar, strummed and tapped, she fashions bittersweet tales. This is music of a deep, raw intensity.’
