Hailing from Sao Paulo, Lu Horta will be gracing our stages at Canadian Music Week with her world/alternative music. We had a short conversation about her upcoming performance.
Lu Horta I think Canadian Music has great similarities with Brazilian music. Both of them are open to the world’s musical influences. Canadian musicians like Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Rush, Neil Young, Alanis Morissette are big references for me, having influenced my work.
Lu Horta: I was selected through the Sonicbids website.
Lu Horta: I’m preparing a set list with songs from my first and second albums, and specially songs from my new project “A Noiva da Cidade”. I am also presenting my latest fusion of original arrangements using body percussion language and playing them alive for the first time. I will perform Alanis Morrissette's song “Hand in my pocket” in a Brazilian afoxe version with body percussion.
Lu Horta: Above all I hope to bring joy through my music !
I sing most of my repertoire in Brazilian Portuguese but I’ll include one song in French and some songs in English. Brazilian Portuguese is a very musical language and its sonority speaks to the heart. It’s important to clarify that some of my video clips have english caption, but I hope that even when not understanding its lyrics, people will still get its message and feeling when they hear my music.
I’m also a member and co-founder of the Brazilian Body Percussion Group "Barbatuques" and I am involved in all its projects; more details you can get at my website www.luhorta.com
