Luana Sandoval
 
"A colorful voice that sounds in every music genre like an angel!” – Mark Roos (Composer & Music Producer)


 
 
Luana Sandoval, a successful singer, songwriter and dancer from Germany, makes her solo concert debut at the Metropolitan Room. Luana performs songs in different languages that best represent her unique voice in the music genres classic, musical theatre and contemporary. She will also perform her originals from her debut EP Love as well as originals from her pianist Nataliya Medvedovskaya. This bright young singer takes us to a musical journey and tells us a bit of her own fascinating story. 
 
Luana studied voice and vocal pedagogy at the university of music in Saarbrücken, Germany. During her studies she already sang in the extra chorus of the Theater Trier and participated in the productions of Lakmé, Evita, Carmen and Eugen Onegin. In 2013 she had the chance to sing the part of Maria Valdez in Z-The Musical of Zorro by Robert W. Cabell in Merzig. This was the second European debut performance.
 
Besides her vocal studies she studied oriental dance with Fatima Serin. Since then she has already danced at different oriental events in Germany and Luxembourg.
 
Luana is able to sing different music genres like classic, musical theatre, contemporary and Bulgarian folk singing. She sings in English, Spanish, Italian, French, German, Russian and Bulgarian. Since the age of fourteen she writes her original songs in English, Spanish, French and German.
 
In January 2017 Luana fulfilled her dream to go to New York to record some of her originals and to take dance lessons in contemporary jazz with Salim Gauwloos and vocal lessons with 
Katie Agresta in musical theatre.
 
With the composer and music producer Mark Roos she recorded her songs Love, Wake Up World, Sin Ti and Melissa. These songs are available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, cdbaby and more.
