09/20/19 Luciana Souza: "The Book of Longing"

Parallels
Buckley, Arms, Amherst College
Friday, Sep 20, 2019 at 8:00 PM (ET)

Luciana Souza is a Grammy-nominated jazz singer and composer best known for thoughtful takes on her native Brazilian songs. In The Book of Longing, she explores saudade, or yearning, through poetry by Leonard Cohen, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Emily Dickinson, and Souza in her own arrangements. She is joined by guitarist Chico Pinheiro and bassist Scott Colley.

“[Luciana Souza is] a New Yorker from Brazil whose singing bridges with breathtaking finesse the not-so-wide gap between Brazilian pop and American jazz. Souza's voice is low, soft and as agile as an otter in water, and it is a sensual pleasure to hear her sing in Portuguese, that most liquid and supple of languages. How marvelous that a singer unknown to me a month ago should now be one of my favorites!” —The Washington Post
