Luiz Caracol, Portuguese singer and author, composes his own music based on the strong cultural miscegenation that the Portuguese language countries and cultures have on him. His work is particular and unique, like himself.
It is impossible not to recognize his music right away. If you listen to him once, you´ll never forget its rhythm, beat, heart and soul. His music reflects his identity, and that is something very special.
Born in south Portugal, Luiz grew up in a cultural mixed environment. His family lived in Angola and they moved to Portugal to a place where many African and Brazilian moved to. That had a great influence on him, both as a person and as a musician.
Over the last years he has participated in projects and shared the stage with artists such as Sara Tavares, Jorge Palma, Aline Frazão, Susana Travassos, Manecas Costa, Fernanda Abreu, Uxia or Tito Paris, among others. He participated in the documentary “MPB - Música Portuguesa Brasileira” in 2011, broadcasted by the national Portuguese television in Portugal and the Brasil channel of the Globo network in Brazil.
His first solo album Devagar, released in 2013, featured very special guests such as Fernanda Abreu, Valete and Sara Tavares. Devagar entered the list of the Fnac top sold albums for more than one month. Since then Luiz has been promoting and sharing his music while performing in different stages in Portugal and Brazil, in Europe and Africa. His last tour in the east coast of the USA in August 2015 was one of his greatest successes.
His next album, “Metade e Meia” will be released in February 2017, and its single “Por acaso” is already in the playlist of several national and international radios.
“Having an international group of this caliber perform in Unity is a rare treat that I hope no one will miss", says Wendi Richards, UCCPA events manager. – The Free Press
