Lura was born in Lisbon in 1975 – the singer Lura.
Her soul is imbue with two cultures: The Portuguese and the Cape-Verdean one, heritage of her mother from São Vicente and her father from Santiago.
At the age of 21 she starts her career. Owner of a profound and sensual voice she has already a wide discography from where we can recognize the singles Na Ri Na, Nha Vida, Moda Bô, etc…
Her talent crosses the boarders in 2005 when her album Di Korpu Ku Alma was released in more than 10 countries including USA, Italy and UK (where it was nominated for the “BBC World Music Awards”).
After living a few years in Praia City in Cape Verde, in 2018 Lura returns to her hometown – Lisbon, already with her 2 years old first daughter.
In 2021 Lura initiates a revolution in her life: she changes her management to Miguel Garcia and his team Lisboa Amsterdam; She also starts the recording of a new album that has the production of the young but already promising Portuguese producer Agir. This album pretends to honour the premonition of the Britannic journal, The Independent: “… when she starts with her international career this girl will fill-up the stadiums”.
October 2021 is the date for the so expected new album, and is also the celebration of her 25 years of career.
