Lura to perform at Bodrum Castle
ISTANBULPortuguese singer and musician Lura will perform at Bodrum Castle on Aug. 27.
Hailing from Cape Verde, an island country off the Atlantic coast of Africa, Lura drew the world’s attention with her cover of “Flor di nha Esperance,” originally sung by Carlos Saura in the 2007 movie “Fados.”
She gained a wider audience with “The Best of Lura,” her 2010 release composed of songs selected from albums she had made since 1996, due in large part to her unique style, which stands out because of the fusion of traditional melodies and rhythms from her homeland with pop and jazz backgrounds.
Featuring a selection of new and old songs, Lura’s Bodrum concert will be organized as part of the 12th International D-Marin Classical Music Festival.
Tickets for the concert are available at Biletix.
