Luísa Maita

Since the moment she was born on April 27, 1982 in the Bela Vista neighborhood of São Paulo, Luísa Taubkin Maita has been surrounded by music. In fact, it was a love of music that brought her parents together, helping them cross the divide of their different family backgrounds. Luísa's father, Amado Maita, was a working class musician of Syrian Muslim roots and her mother, Myriam Taubkin, came from a wealthy family of European Jewish heritage, and has been an important concert producer and cultural advocate for over thirty years.

Luísa MaitaFio da Memória


“On Fio da Memória, she draws on electronic sounds, retrofitting those synthetic beeps and beats into Brazil’s natural rhythms — those rustling between palm fronds in the Amazon, crashing along the country’s endless coastline, and feet pounding the checkered wave boardwalk of Copacabana.” – Remezcla

 “On the whole, Fio Da Memória is awash with creative ideas, dense arrangements and a fierce electronic palette. This is the kind of album that soars high above you through the clouds, before swooping down and flying you away into the opaque, samba-drenched night.” – Rhythm Passport

“Like another paulista musician who has achieved some success in North America, Céu, Luísa Maita’s new material ventures deep into electronic territory, with some foreboding textures that to my ears recall as much Portishead’s last album as the warmer MPB shades of [debut album] Lero-Lero." – Sounds and Colours 


"When Maita first appeared on the scene with a more traditional Brazilian sound there were always twists & turns - hints of dub or experimentation, which have progressively come to the fore. She has now produced this album of darker leftfield electro rock no-wave shoegaze pop with the odd nod to classic Brazilian music. Music lovers rejoice, Brazil purists beware!" – Global Soldier 

“If this is what Brazil’s electronic age sounds like I’m all for it.”
World Music Central


"Blending hypnotic, downtempo grooves with ethereal vocals (in both Portuguese and English) and occasional splashes of guitar, Maita creates a shimmering soundscape that is at once of Brazil and the world on her second album."
Fort Worth Star-Telegram
