about

"The music of London based Portuguese songstress Rita Braga simultaneously summons the ghosts of synth pioneers such as Delia Derbyshire and Bruce Haack as well as that of eccentric performers like Vivian Stanshall and Carmen Miranda. Her universe is one of colours, exuding both the charm of a vintage cartoon character merrily bouncing along and the ominous melancholy of a lost kitten on a rooftop."

The fourteen tracks of her new album, Bird On The Moon whiz by in just under half an hour and features cameos from Ian Svenonius (The Make-Up, Chain and The Gang etc), theremin wizard Dorit Chrysler and Berlin underground queen Mary Ocher. With songs in five different languages, her idiosyncratic and sometimes eerie world will make you feel like you've stepped into a David Lynch movie from which you may not return.

Over the last decade she has toured across Europe, the US, Brazil and Australia in numerous clubs, art galleries and festivals. She also has a background in the visual arts doing illustration and animation, hosts unpredictable cabarets, graduated in Music Sciences. When she's not heading out for new adventures around the globe, she claims to receive insight from cartoon personalities at night in her dreams (such as Bugs Bunny) on how to conduct her career.

Amongst other things she wrote and performed the sci-fi minimal ukulele pop operetta “A Quantic Dream” as a result of a 2 month residency in Graz, Austria, in Fall 2016. This show combined a dream sequence, astrophysics, burlesque, animation and light hearted existentialism...welcome to the very special world of Rita Braga!
