Maria de Lurdes Assunção Pina (Lura) was born in Lisbon to Cape-Verdean parents. The eldest of four siblings, she is the only artist in the family. Her soul is soaked in two cultures – Portuguese and Cape-Verdean – that mark her life, her melodies and her musical career. When she was 21, she released her debut album with the help of a Portuguese producer. This was a commercial dance record aimed at her generational peers, with one of its songs, “Nha Vida”, causing a great buzz. In 2004, she released Di Korpu Ku Alma, her first proper Cape-Verdean music album, which quickly transcended borders thanks to the success of track "Na Ri Na" and made the artist unstoppable. Successive albums came to consolidate the singer’s enormous talent. Herança arrived in 2015, a highly danceable work, brimming with pure Cape Verde energy and funaná rhythms, bringing memorable tracks like “Maria di Lida”, “Sabi di Más” and “Ness Tempo di Nha Bidjissa”. In Lura’s voice, each track in the album turns into a universal song through the discovery of traditional creole music and the melting pot that is the best kept secret in Africa: The Cape Verde Islands. In 2022, Lura started a ‘revolution’ in her life as she commenced work on her new album. Produced by Agir, this is still a celebration of the Afro-Luso culture, as can be appreciated in the single “BLA BLA BLA”. You won’t want to miss Lura’s concert on the LG stage at Super Bock Super Rock.
