With the recent release of her debut CD "Day by Day" it is clear that Luca
Mundaca is a musical artist in her prime. A formidable composer and
arranger, the new CD features all original compositions. Shortly after
releasing the CD an unsolicited copy was sent to Putumayo records in New
York City. So impressed were the Putumayo people they immediately added her
to their brand new "Brazilian Lounge" CD. She is featured alongside several
major Brazilian artists on that CD including Bebel Gilberto, Paula
Morlenbaum, and Marcos Valle. The Putumayo CD features her original
composition "Ha Dias".

 Luca won the 2008 Independent Music Award in the World fusion category. In

shows, ABC-TV show*Mistress* (2013), movie *End of Watch* (2012), *The
Visitor*(2007), the TV Show *Californication *(2007), the movie *Kissing
Paris* (2008), and the Brazilian TV show *TiTiTi,* telenovela (2010).

glorious blend of her native Brazil with a touch of downtown New York. She
mines the deep melodic roots of her*

*country's heritage, creating musical gems that she polishes with the
lightest of touches. A **talent to watch.”-*Tom Evered, General Manager and

 *“Luca Mundaca is a singer and songwriter whose work I have been aware of
since she arrived **in NYC. Her abilities are unlimited; she has a stunning
voice of great intimacy and emotion, and her songwriting is first rate. It
is rare to find in an artist both the capacity to write brilliant melodies
& profound lyrics, and to then perform them at such a high level of
musicianship. She simply has it all.”* - Seth Rothstein, Vice-President
