bio

“With roots in Buenos Aires and a home base in Brooklyn, Juana Luna is a driven, passionate, and charismatic songwriter who knows a thing or two about crafting powerful lyrics and amazing melodies, as well as interpreting classic South American styles.
(…) Luna’s sound is very direct and energetic, yet intimate and emotional”
The Journal of Roots Music NO DEPRESSION Magazine



“Today when so many artists are producing homogeneous music, it is refreshing to hear something like Luna, a performer who embraces her traditional roots. She boasts an innovative and unique cultural flair, blurring the lines between genres.”
