About the artist:

Multilingual and multitalented, Lua Hadar has performed as a singer and actor since her New York childhood. She is now based in San Francisco, where she performs and tours with her band Twist, singing jazz spiced with pop, funk, Latin and international cabaret. She is an entertainer who brings joy and laughter to audiences, no matter what language they speak.

Instantly accessible and truly exotic, this Broadway-influenced performer has been molded by exchange experiences in places as diverse as Bali, Russia, Switzerland, Japan, Thailand, France and Italy, where she performed on tour for five years. Her fascination with world cultures is reflected in the sophisticated song choices for Twist in the development of their signature “jazz without borders.”

A unique and original vocalist with a soaring range, Lua interprets lyrics in several languages with a charming, swinging delivery. Michael Arens of Jazz Germany says “…She makes the other side of the world seem a stone’s throw away.”
