New EP ‘SAMBA QUE BALANÇA NAO CAI’ released on 8th April on Temps Record 


Hailing from Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Luna Cohen’s music represents and reflects the rich diversity of Brazilian culture. Over the past two decades, the London-based vocalist, described as “one of the most interesting singers and composers among the rising stars of MPB - música popular brasileira" (Time Out Barcelona), has perfected her craft and earned a spot in the foreground of the jazz scene.

2022 welcomes the release of her bold new EP, Samba que balança não cai, following her four albums to date which includes the Enderrock Award-winning Estrada do Sol (2012) for Best New Jazz Album, and a nomination for Best Album at the MIN, Spain’s prestigious Independent Music Awards, for November Sky (2016).

Cohen’s “seductive voice and natural talent for singing" (El Periodico, Spain) has been heard in various projects with her longstanding collaborator, award-winning guitarist Rob Luft, pianist Sam Watts, and as part of The 606 Club’s house band, Samara. Her performances throughout London include Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club; The Royal Albert Hall; The Jazz Café; the EFG London Jazz Festival; Canary Wharf Jazz Festival; as well as international appearances at Jamboree and Nova Jazz Cava in Barcelona and at the Mas i Mas and Terrassa Jazz Festivals in Spain.

Show's Blurb

Join Brazilian singer Luna Cohen and her band on a joyful and powerful journey where colorful grooves of Afro-Brazilian influences celebrate the diversity of Brazilian culture.

On stage, Cohen really comes out swinging, reanimating old songs with new energy and delighting the audience with her original music. This is samba and bossa nova at their best, spiked with jazz and delivered with zeal.

Her band – among the best in the UK’s Anglo-Brazilian scene – underscores captivating melodies in smooth phrasing, combining deft musicianship with danceable rhythms.

If you've not felt that exhilarating mix of emotions in a while, maybe it's time you give yourself up to the music?
