Luís Represas had an interest in music early on. In 1976 he started the band Trovante, in which he took the place of lead singer until their parting in 1992, then beginning his solo career.
In 1993, Represas retreats to Havana, where he works with Nani Teixiera and the cubans Pablo Milanés and Miguel Nuñez, which resulted in the album “Represas”.
In 1995 he starts composing his second album “Cumplicidades”. He then performs live at CCB’s Auditorium for four nights in a row, thus giving rise to the album “Ao Vivo no CCB”. In 1998 Represas releases his forth record “A Hora do Lobo”, where he reunites with Miguel Nuñez.
The following year Represas reunites with Trovante for a show at Pavilhão Atlântico. In December that same year he partakes in the Macao’s Handover to the People’s Republic of China. In 2000 he travels to Timor, taking along with him a song by the same name that then became an anthem to the territory’s Independence.
In 2001, Luís Represas releases his record “Código Verde” in commemoration of his 25 years career anniversary. In September that same year he premieres his new project “Reserva Especial”, a collection of 21 world music reference songs.
In October 2003, Luís presents his new album “Fora de Mão”. In 2006 he releases the record “A história Toda”, a recording of the show that celebrated his 30 years career anniversary in Coliseu do Porto and in CCB’s Great Auditorium.
In 2007, 13 years after the end of Trovante, he launches the project “Luís Represas e João Gil”, a reunion between the musicians both on stage and in a record. The following year Represas records “Navegar é Preciso”.
“Olhos nos Olhos”, his ninth solo album, is released in 2008. The album’s presentation took place the following year and culminated in the project “Luís Represas – Ao Vivo no Campo Pequeno”.
In 2014 he records a new album “Cores” and in 2015 he records the CD/DVD “Tratamento Acústico” live at CCB.
In May 2018 Luís Represas premieres his most recent album “Boa Hora”. The record features special guests such as Carlos do Carmo, Ivan Lins, Mia Rose, Paulo Gonzo and Jorge Palma. The album’s presentation in 2019 was combined with the celebration of his 43 years career anniversary, having sold out both Coliseu dos Recreios in Lisbon and Casa da Música in Porto.
In February 2020 Represas presents a new show in an intimate setting, “Ao Canto da Noite”, which sells out Auditório Carlos Paredes, in Benfica, for five nights in a row.
