Album Notes
“All way from Lisbon, Portugal comes Rita Braga. This charming and beautiful Ukulele queen with a voice of velvet plays a brilliant mishmash of sound. Combining Julee Cruise esque Lounge with a strange mix of folk ranging from Serbian, Hawaiian, and Appalachian Mountain music, Rita Braga’s sound is truly unique and refreshing.” – Chris Carlone

“The music of Rita Braga is a sweet mixture of traditional and avant-garde. Folkish and electronic. Moreover, it vibrates with humor and emotions. I can’t name a plenty of people daring to record and play banjo and Casio in the same song. Plus, you can sense that the ideas behind her cartoons and illustrations are somehow merging with her musical performances. I’m telling you: this girl is a wonder!” – Aleksandar Zograf, cartoonist from Serbia

Rita Braga is a Musician, Illustrator and Animator from Lisbon, Portugal with a repertoir of songs ranging from Mozart on the Ukulele to Serbian, Polish and Russian Folk to Amerian Appalachian songs, old cowboy songs, 1920′s jazz to Bollywood.

Since 2004 she has made numerous appearances in concerts, performances and variety shows in Portugal, Spain, France, Germany, Serbia, Italy, Belgium, Poland and the US. Most often singing and playing ukulele, sometimes she adds keyboards, guitar or pre recorded tracks to her solo set. She also loves collaborating with other musicians and often finds new collaborations on her tours.

Rita Braga's debut album CHERRIES THAT WENT TO THE POLICE features guest musicians Chris Carlone from NYC on the slide guitar, piano, banjo, whip, drums and ski bass, Nik Phelps (composer for animation, who has collaborated with Tom Waits and Frank Zappa) on the clarinet, Yvette Dudoit (Fort King) on the slide guitar, Jef Hogan-Buffa (Amanda Jo Williams) on the double bass, Rui Dâmaso (Loosers), Hernani Faustino (Red Trio) and Ignatz B. The album was produced and mixed by Bernardo Devlin.

CHERRIES THAT WENT TO THE POLICE was recorded in beautiful home studios in Lisbon, Philadelphia, Ghent, Los Angeles and Buenos Aires. The cover art is a drawing by Aleksandar Zograf.
