Auckland based singer-songwriter LUNA blends Spanish and English in her music to showcase elements from both sides of her cultural identity. Her music fuses reggaeton, jazz and RnB and it tells stories of youth and love. Raised by artistic parents, Luna was continuously encouraged to explore artistic expression and she began singing and dancing at a very young age. Always drawing inspiration from the Latin American music heard in her family home and the popular music on the radio.
“Smokey and effervescent with raw declarations of honesty. Luna’s rasp is reminiscent of a pioneer vocalist, bleeding her heart out in each breath.”
