Portuguese singer, composer, guitarist and poet Lula Pena comes to Norwich following the release of her new album, Archivo Pittoresco (Crammed Discs). Lula’s voice is haunting, her guitar style unique and her approach to music deeply emotional and intense, taking in folk blues, flamenco, French chanson, fado and bossa nova.

Archivo Pittoresco consists of thirteen beautiful tracks, with lyrics and poems by herself and others, from Manos Hadjidakis and Vileta Parra to Belgian surrealist Scutenaire. She sings in Portuguese, French, English, Spanish, Greek and Italian and takes us on an extraordinary journey – as the last track on the album suggests - ‘Come Wander with Me’.

Performance runs: c. 1 hr 15 mins
