Making Tracks 2019

Luna Silva is a singer-songwriter who was born in France; the daughter of an English actress and a Spanish clown. Singing in three languages and playing several instruments, her compositions are informed by numerous multi-cultural travels and experiences. In 2016 she spent time in Indonesia, carrying out research on two Indonesian ukulele-like instruments, the cak and the cuk. A natural and instinctive performer, Luna combines contemporary music with traditional musics from around the globe. She performs in the female polyphonic vocal trio Samaïa - focusing heavily on Turkish and Kurdish music - as well as part of her own quartet whose arrangements touch on eastern European, English folk, pop, rock and jazz.
