My new album “Entre Dos Mundos” will be released next weekend, with two concerts at the prestigious Flamenco Biënnale NL! On Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th of January we present the cd with concerts at various wonderful venues, see my concert agenda for more info!

Luna Zegers - Entre Dos Mundos

Het Cenakel in Tilburg organises a New Year’s concert on Sunday January 8th and asked Luna to perform an all Spanish program.  The combination of classical Spanish songs and flamenco song has not been heard often within one and the same concert, and certainly not in the Netherlands.

The classical songs, written by composers Federico García Lorca and Manuel de Falla, who both had a strong love for flamenco, present a heartwarming start of the new year. Add some flamenco to that and 2017 takes off energetically. Happy New Year! 🙂

Instrumentation:

Luna Zegers – voice

Vicente Santiago – flamenco guitar

Claudio Spieler – percussion

Irene Álvarez – flamenco dance

Dutch television channel NET5 recently broadcasted a small portrait of Luna because of her 5th place on the “VIVA400” list. This is a list of Dutch women’s magazine “VIVA” with 400 women who excel in their field of work.

The portrait can be watched HERE and will be broadcasted again on Monday august 15 on channel NET5, at the following hours: 17.45, 21.15, 00.00 and 01.00 h.

Net5 - VIVA400 On The Move

Pictures made by Ginette Lavell / www.flamencoagenda.nl at the Flamenco Festival Rotterdam, 25-06-2016. We played our performance “A Flor de Piel” with Jordi Rodriguez (guitar), Udo Demandt (percussion) and Agustín Cabrera (dance).

Television program “De Nieuwe Wereld” (NPO2) asked Luna to make a Spanish version of the Dutch classic “Iedereen is van de wereld“. So she translated the lyrics and forged the piece into the musical form “tanguillos”. Guitar: Jordi Rodriguez. Percussion: Udo Demandt.

The recording can be watched HERE.

In this episode of television program “De Nieuwe Wereld” (“The New World”), Luna sings one of her own pieces and also a Spanish version of the Dutch classic “Iedereen is van de wereld” (“Everybody is from this world”).

This programa asked Luna to perform a Spanish interpretation of this piece, so she translated the lyrics into a Spanish poetic form and she transformed the music into a “tanguillo”, one of the styles that in flamenco is often being used to sing about happy affairs.

The great musicians Jordi Rodriguez Rodriguez and Udo Demandt accompany Luna in these songs. Gracias fenómenos!

Luna & Patrick Lodiers

Last Friday we played “Entre Dos Mundos” in the concert series of (in)Fusión Flamenca, thanks to my fantastic band and a wonderful audience it was a great evening! Thanks everyone! 🙂

Title song “Entre Dos Mundos” (music & lyrics by Luna) is now online on Youtube.

With the wonderful Mélodie Gimard on piano!

Luna sings her story about the two worlds between which she navegates.

Television station “Omroep Brabant” recorded an item about Luna, visiting her village of birth (Overloon) with her, where she grew up surrounded by trees and forest.

This reportage was recorded around various concerts during the theatre festival “Best of the Fest” in Parktheater Eindhoven, for which theatre programmer Mons de Goede invited Luna. This year, the theme of the festival is the music and theatre based in Catalonia.

Click HERE to see the video on the website of Omroep Brabant with more explanation about Luna’s story (in Dutch), or just watch the video below:

Theatre festival “Best of the Fest”, one of The Netherlands’ most exciting theatre festivals, has invited Luna to perform in the Parktheater in Eindhoven which was chosen as Theatre of the Year 2014 in The Netherlands last January!

Luna will play her own pieces from “Entre Dos Mundos“, her graduation concert in Barcelona last June, together with Jordi Rodriguez (flamenco guitar) and Udo Demandt (percussion).

Our first concert that day is at 6.00 p.m. and we play a second concert at 9.45 p.m.

All information about our concerts can be found HERE.

Sueño contigo y con la mente libre,
No hace falta decir que te camelo

Yo te miro y tu me miras,
Nuestros ojos prenden fuego que provoca el deshielo
Que provoca el deshielo
Que provoca el deshielo

Los dos sabemos que a veces tenemos magia
El amor es un misterio
Igual que el cielo da la luna
Igual que el cielo da la luna, da la luna

FROM WITHIN  (Music: Michel Camilo / Lyrics: Luna Zegers)

Early morning I awake from deepest slumber
Am I awake or am I still in a dreamland?
The world is sleeping still
There´s no sign of thrill or wonder
But I catch a glimpse of what is yet to come

And as I linger there awaiting something
That hasn´t happened yet but I can feel it coming
The sun breaks through the clouds
Light of hope that brings new morning
Suddenly I see a way within the void

And then…
As an invisible hand removes the veil of dullness
The gods of light and darkness seem to play an open game
Day breaks though the night
Lighting up a sea of chances
Where there was a wall is now an open door

I only have to reach for what I thought was on the outside
But it turns out it´s inside of me

Faith in life´s destination
Trust and anticipation
All I need is just begin
Because the message comes from within

Luna soleada

I Carry All Of You In Me  (music & lyrics: Luna Zegers, June 2010)

Often things ain’t what they look like
And they’re far off from what you expect
Although it may be questioned what it is
That gives me ground to expect something
From who, from what?

So whenever things in life don’t go like
You think they are supposed to have their run
It it human nature to go wonder for the reasons and the rhymes
The why, the what

They say “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”
But what happens in between makes you so weak
Anxiety and despair are the perfect pair
Making me believe that it’s all over
Trust is far away and even ’till today
On my darkest days I am alone

I Carry All Of You In Me
I remember every moment when my hope was smashed to pieces
And every time there was less left to lose
I Carry All Of You In Me
All the heartache and the sorrow, all the waiting for tomorrow
Maybe then I would have paid all my dues

One illness came, sat at our table
Ate the food and drank the wine
An unwelcome guest having a good time
Taking twice a life that would still unfold

His job done, he changed faces with another
But the third time it was a hit and run
Leaving me with nothing but the silence of a smoking battlefield
My heart turned cold

Long years of darkness then enclosed me
It seemed I had no future, just a past
Things came to an end, or at least that’s how it felt
Making me believe that it’s all over
Missing what I lost, learning ’bout the cost
Of a life lived in the heart of time

I Carry All Of You In Me
Contrasting youthful innocence with loneliness and bitterness
My truth made that day turned to night
I Carry All Of You In Me
But there were pieces of tomorrow that were no longer drowned in sorrow
I was starting to see some light

One day I could suddenly see a color
It was the deep red of a blooming rose
For years I had been living in all different shades of grey
And than it struck me: I felt alive!

One sensation then led to another
And old memories started coming back
Images of when we were a happy family
With all the aspects of love and trust

They say what belongs to you, you can’t lose it
For the first time in my life that felt so real
You gave me all you got, and god knows it was a lot
Openness and tenderness and freedom
Music filled my heart right there from the start
Giving me the joy to be alive

I Carry All Of You In Me
All your brightness and your colors
All your wishes for tomorrow
And there is nothing that keeps us apart
I Carry All Of You In Me
In the end I am the luckiest of all because I keep you in my heart

Now that I am one.
