Lula Pena

Three years after her sold-out concert at the Casa del Jazz, Lula Pena, one of the most haunting voices on the contemporary scene, comes to the Auditorium Parco della Musica Ennio Morricone on March 4. Born and raised in Lisbon, Lula Pena, guitarist and poet, appropriates fado in order to go "beyond fado" and deliver it to the new millennium in its disarming simplicity and with the poetic sensibility of our age. Lula has a voice that seems to come from elsewhere. A presence that impresses. An emotion that lingers. She is a singer-poet, a mysterious woman who hides behind her guitar to better surprise us. Some say of Lula Pena's voice, "Somewhere between Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen, but female." In any case, this is a unique voice in today's music scene, a beautiful deep voice whose inspirations are many and cross borders: Lisbon fado, Cape Verdean morna, French song, Brazilian bossa nova, Argentine tango, Afro-Arabic atmospheres... anything that stirs deep sensitivity: with voice and guitar, Lula Pena interprets emotions and silence.
