LEO MIDDEA (BR) – musique brézilienne


Date : April 19, 2024

Début : 21:45

Leo Middea is from the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro and at 27 years of age he has already travelled the world with his guitar. He is currently based in Lisbon, Portugal, where he
recorded his last two albums: “Vicentina” (2020) and “Beleza Isolar” (2020).

Anyone who sees him on stage is struck by his energy and presence and how he maintains this intensity throughout his shows. With his first album in hand, “Dois” (2014), Leo at the age of 18 began his musical journey and ended up in Buenos Aires performing some 25 gigs around Argentina that year. His second album “A Dança do Mundo” (2016) was selected in several best-album-of-the-year lists and received positive reviews in the Brazilian and Portuguese press. “Vicentina” (2020) came with production by Paulo Novaes, arrangements by Polivalente and participation by the singer Janeiro.

The impossible never phased Leo, with this project taking off after he raised recording funds by walking the streets of Lisbon asking for 1 euro per person – a process which was also recorded for a mini doc available on Youtube. The record reached one million plays on Spotify in just nine months. Following his successful “balcony sessions” during the pandemic, sold out gigs in London, Amsterdam, Rio and Lisbon among many others, and almost 8 million streams on Spotify alone, Leo Middea keeps on exploring the world in search of new encounters and connecting with each audience he plays for.
