RITA BRAGA is available for solo performances and Ukulele workshops.
Born in Lisbon in 1985, Braga is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. She performs songs in over 10 languages.
Over the past decade she has performed all across Europe, the US, Brazil, Australia and Japan.
"Bird on the Moon" (Lunadélia Recs, 2018 / Moorworks, Japan 2019) reveals her idiosyncratic and sometimes eerie pop compositions. It was listed as one of the “Top 15 records featuring ukuleles” by The Wire magazine.
“A world teased with a childlike surreal innocence, both spectral and minimalist, populated by a playful alchemy... Ms Braga shares a kinship with the Space Lady, both operating in a sparse pop purist medium that draws its lineage back to Silver Apples”. - Mark Barton, The Sunday Experience.
Braga wrote a sci-fi ukulele pop operetta called "A Quantic Dream". The show combined a dream sequence, astrophysics, burlesque, animation and lighthearted existentialism.
Braga has collaborated with The Legendary Tigerman, Dorit Chrysler, Mary Ocher, Victor Coyote, Bernardo Devlin, Felix Kubin, Ian Svenonius and others.
