Discover zinha’s Debut Single, “why do you make me wait?”

During some cold, long winter months, the singer-songwriter and at that time, part-time waitress Luisa Chumbinho, was ready to hand in her notice and take to the bright lights of the UK music scene, but only one question went unanswered; how would she find the path to her dreams without a job, post-pandemic?

After a long conversation about her upbringing and life experiences with her friend songwriter/producer Josh Christopher, Luisa came up with the idea to name her solo project “zinha,” which she was nicknamed as a child by her family.

They spent a year growing their friendship and crafting songs in his small-town DIY recording studio, and the pair created an 8-track EP titled “ ☹☺ ,” set for release in the summer of 2024. The project consists of eight songs, such as “why do u make me wait?” which contains heart-wrenching lyrics and a timeless ballad arrangement. “ ☹☺ ” also possesses the ‘70s and ‘80s lava-lamp thought-inducing bop of “so blue,” Latin-inspired indie-dance record “you’re my biggest regret,” “walls,” which is a thunderous, modern meets vintage love song and seamlessly good ‘fly-on-the-wall’ recordings that work as interludes between each track.

Now splitting her time between the UK and Portugal, zinha has made a name for herself becoming Lisbon’s most prolific busker, earning a full-time wage from her stunning vocal renditions, and crowd-pleasing covers at various hotspots around the city.
