Join Luísa Sobral (Eurovision songwriter winner 2017) in this 2-hour workshop/ masterclass where she will demonstrate her creative process from her own songlist, workshop participants’ songs and communicate techniques to get the creative juices flowing. This workshop is for songwriters and aspiring songwriters.
WHAT I DO IN MY CLASSES IS TO PUSH THE STUDENTS’ CREATIVITY. I HELP THEM GET THE CAR GOING, BUT THEN THEY DRIVE IT. THIS IS WHAT I’M GOING TO TALK ABOUT IN THIS WORKSHOP, ABOUT TECHNIQUES TO STIMULATE CREATIVITY. TECHNIQUES THAT MAKE US LOOK AT THE WORLD IN A DIFFERENT WAY AND SEE IN EVERYTHING, OR ALMOST EVERYTHING, A POSSIBLE SONG.
For more information on this workshop/masterclass, please see the official event page.
Luísa is possibly best known for her Eurovision winning song ‘Amar Pelos Dois’. It was written and gifted to her brother, Salvador Sobral, to perform in 2017. This sister and brother partnership was a huge success, winning the Portuguese competition and then the European one. It was the first time Portugal had ever won the Eurovision Song Contest and also the first time that the European public had chosen a jazz tune as the winner.
‘Amar pelos Dois’ has consecrated Luísa Sobral as one of the most important and prestigious composers of the new generation of Portuguese artists. She received the Composition Prize Marcel Bezençon (creator of the Eurovision Song Contest), the Prémio Autores SPA (SPA Authors Award) and the Globo de Ouro (Golden Globe Award) for Best Music.
Luisa began her recording career in 2011, after graduating with flying colours from the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. Her first album, ‘The Cherry On My Cake’ was an instant success in Portugal. It remained at the top of the charts for many weeks and quickly went platinum. Luisa, who immediately embarked on a Portugal-wide tour, soon found that her fame was spreading overseas as well.
Critics far and wide have heaped praise on this Portuguese artist’s talent and she has already won two Globos de Ouro (Portugal’s version of the Golden Globe Awards) nominations and appeared on the mythical BBC 2 show “Later… with Jools Holland”.
With 5 highly acclaimed albums under her belt, Luísa Sobral has reached a new level of creative maturity: even more secure, authentic and spontaneous.
Luísa will be performing at WOMADelaide in 2020 and will also visit Sydney and Melbourne on the same tour.
