“Presenting an unexpected, yet natural combination of rhythms inspired by the sounds of earth and nature, Lua will make you stomp your feet, sing along, and be transported into the musical spirit of Veracruz and the Appalachian region.”
— JULIA DEL PALACIO, 
MANAGER OF STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS, 
QUEENS COLLEGE

“You just have to love the syncretic sounds of Lua, combining the best elements of Mexican and Appalachian music forms into their catalog of original songs. And they play with such joyfulness! Their music performances are wonderful to experience.”
— NATHAN MOORE, 
GENERAL MANAGER (WTJU 91.1 FM)

Lua is a cultural pollinator, bridging together musical styles from different continents and different centuries. They write about contemporary themes, about families, and people and work and loss, but draw on the musical traditions of their own families' past.

The music is inspired by Mexican Son, Appalachian song forms, Jewish and Eastern European tonalities, baroque melodic ideas, and Scotch-Irish narrative storytelling approaches. 

They strive to create a repertoire that constitutes new traditional music that they will be able to pass down to their children to experience, transform, and pass on.
