Of her musical influences, Luiza says: “Elis Regina, Tom Jobim, Gilberto Gil, Marisa Monte and Tim Maia were very present during my musical education. From around the world, Ella Fitzgerald is a huge reference for me, and Led Zeppelin are one of my favorite bands. Lately I’ve been listening a lot to Esperanza Spalding, Hiatus Kaiyote, Snarky Puppy, Roy Hargrove, and Kings of Leon.”
