Lua Hadar

Multi-lingual and multi-talented, LUA HADAR has performed as a singer and actor since her New York childhood. Graduating summa cum laude with a B.A. in Theatre Performance, Lua attended the celebrated Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre and The Dalcroze School of Music, also studying with Metropolitan Opera coach, Joan Dornemann.

Lua sings jazz influenced by pop, funk, latin and international cabaret. 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. Her fascination with world cultures is reflected in the sophisticated song choices for her band, TWIST, in 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. Her Paris debut in July 2009 came on the heels of the successful New York release of her latest CD, Lua Hadar with TWIST, at Broadway’s Iridium Jazz Club (…stunning… sheer beauty… she rocked! ��” Cabaret Scenes, NYC) and her band’s international debut at the Bangkok International Festival of Dance & Music.

Her CD, Lua Hadar with TWIST, has garnered raves from around the world, (…vivacious brand of jazz…inspired… swinging…cool - Luna Kafé, Sweden; …seductive… polished vocal phrasing… irresistible - Blast Radio 1386, UK) as well as Radio Top 10 Ratings in the USA. It appears on iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody and most digitial services, including Shazam.
