One of the most relevant artists of the new generation of MPB, the carioca Leo Middea presents the new album of originals, “Gente”.
The musician also announces a tour of Portugal that will be on the 8th of June at B.Leza, in Lisbon, at 10pm.
“Gente” is the fifth album by Leo Middea and will be released through the French label Pineapple French Pop. This is the first work by Leo Middea to have a physical edition, and with digital distribution by Altafonte Brasil.
The new album was recorded in several European cities and is produced by Breno Viricimo, with the participation of the Brazilian singer living in Portugal Mallu Magalhães in “Borboleta Efeito”, a single that was released in March. “Gente” also includes the participation of the singer Curandeira and the trumpeter Béesau in the theme “Balanço de Amor”, as well as several talented instrumentalists.
In July, the musician continues his tour around the country: on the 5th of July he performs in Mondim de Basto, at Favo das Artes; on the 6th he will be in Porto, at Maus Hábitos; on the 7th he performs in Coimbra, at Largo do Poço; on the 15th of July in Almada; on the 28th it performs again in Lisbon; on the 29th he performs in Grândola; on the 14th of August it will be Barreiro’s turn; in September he will be back, this time on the 9th in Funchal and then on the 19th of October he will perform again in Porto.
In the last year, Leo Middea has performed all over the place: Portugal, Brazil, France, Holland, England, Italy, Spain or Cape Verde. The musician has traveled the world accompanied by his guitar and his sweet and catchy songs – such as Lisbon Lisbon or Freguesia de Arroios, are streaming champions on the various digital platforms.
He currently lives between Lisbon, the city where he recorded his previous albums: “Vicentina” and “Beleza Isolar” (2020) and Barcelona. Anyone who sees him on stage is surprised by his energy and incessant presence from beginning to end, sometimes solo and sometimes accompanied by his band.
