Lura

1975 -

Origin: Cape Verde

Main instrument: Vocal

Genre: World

Born in Lisbon, Portugal to Cape Verdean parents in 1975, Lura is a rare jewel among her island's rich African musical tradition. One of few female Creole singer-songwriters, Lura happened upon a singing career at the age of 17, after pursuing a steady path as a dancer and backing vocalist for famed African singer Juka, who encouraged her to sing and asked her to accompany him on a duet. In 2005, after a few more collaborations, she released her first international solo effort, Di Korpu Ku Alma, a mixture of R&B, Brazilian and Portuguese rhythms and Creole sounds, with a more urban touch than that of famous Cape Verdean singer, Cesaria Evora. In 2009, she released her fourth album, Eclipse.
