Lua Hadar, intriguing "world jazz" vocalist is a refreshing revelation in passionate musical creativity. Her latest CD, Lua Hadar with TWIST (her sophisticated high-energy band), makes it clear that, as the name implies, their music keeps moving forward in unexpected ways.

Lua''s success as a singer is not surprising considering that her father was a musician/bandleader, and the soundtrack of her New York childhood was taken right out of the Great American Songbook. Her unique musical skill set has classical and jazz roots, combined with a remarkable facility and love for the Romance languages, including French, Italian and Spanish.

Lua''s lust for travel and cultural exchange has produced a cosmopolitan mix of original, international and standard jazz tunes "twisted" in a surprising fusion by Hadar and her musical director, pianist and arranger, Jason Martineau.

Extensive training and experience in theatre and cabaret have given Lua an ability to connect intimately with audiences and emotionally embrace her music. Completely at home on stage, she has a warm and generous way with both her band and her audiences. This is part of the reason why Lua and TWIST make regular return engagements to many venues.

When not touring, Lua Hadar and TWIST are based in San Francisco, frequently appearing on the vibrant entertainment scene there and in Los Angeles, at venues such as Jazz at Pearl’s, The Plush Room, and Hollywood’s Gardenia and M-Bar Supper Clubs.

Lua is very active in the San Francisco Bay Area as a performing arts consultant and mentor. She maintains a private Vocal Studio where she trains professional singers and actors.

On the May 10, 2008, CD Release at New York''s Iridium Jazz Club, by critic Joe Regan Jr: - "a stunning evening - sheer beauty - every selection was dramatically on the nose - she rocked - her physical presence and body language remind one of the great Latin, Abbe Lane, at her peak. The evening was pure pleasure!"
