Norka Luque continues to work tirelessly to inspire millions with her music whose message she draws from her struggles. The 30-year-old rose to international fame about five years ago and has continued to impress with her incredible music. Luque inclination to music started early in her life back in Venezuela where she was born. Her parents encourage her into music with dancing, voice training and piano playing. When Norka graduated high school, she relocated to France intending to study French. In France, she studied Business Administration and graduated with diplomas in Marketing, Culinary Arts and Fashion. All this time her interest in music never waned; she started a band that performed alternative tunes. ‘Bad Moon Rising,’ as the band was to be called, that afforded her travel to various cities and to gain a valuable close peep at the European music scene.
Norka even had a short stint in banking while in Monaco but soon realized that music was what she wanted to do. She would then move to the U.S resolving to pursue music. It is here where she had her first real music realm while collaborating with a producer called Valazquez. However, her big break came with the encounter of the international acclaimed Emilio Estefan Jr, who took an interest in Luque’s work and helped her record her debut. The debut was successful and was received well in the States, Puerto Rico and her birth country Venezuela. It received nominations n for several awards in the Latin music Award.
Luque had a rather challenging year in 2014 due epilepsy culminating to brain surgery in 2015. Norka Luque healing was a real struggle and nothing short of a miracle. In 2016 she has staged a major comeback working with producer Fito Blanko. She recently released her single ‘Tomorrowland,’ produced by Emilio Estefan Jr, who continues to encourage as her music career moves forward.
Luque’s rejuvenation and music inclination emanate in her philosophy believing that artists have a great duty to pass a positive message to their fans as lyrics of songs transport them to very deep emotional levels. She holds that, although the music world is perpetually changing in genres and rhythms it should primarily communicate the same message. Her song Milagro does precisely that; it sends a message of hope to those in despair like the one she faced, and hope that miracles will happen to make their lives better. The world will never be any more ready for the music Norka Luque is releasing.
The Greyhound Diaries is an exciting new addition to the world of music. It is an interesting concept that was created by an American journalist, Doug Levitt. The idea behind the music is that there are some great stories that writers can hear on a greyhound bus. This is especially true because, as Levitt has explained, the people who ride buses in the United States are forced to because they can not drive. Typically, these people are struggling to get by and so their stories are heart wrenching and so easy to connect with.
Levitt named the recording Greyhound Diaries with a goal of creating a piece of art that showed what America looked like during a crisis point. But the 70 thousand miles of greyhound riding did not only produce an album for Levitt. He is now also sharing pictures and stories from his trip. Levitt explained that his trip opened his eyes to how many different stories really do need to be told. He also had a much greater understanding of how important our stories are to us and how they tie us together and bring out our commonalities.
Doug explains that he was inspired by the depression era programs that were put in place decades ago. Levitt saw that a crisis was slowly building up across America. People were scared and they were running out of options. He thought that the best way he could serve others, outside of his journalism career, would be to tell their stories so that the world could hear them. Levitt says that he also personally benefited from the journey. His father had recently committed suicide and the trip helped him to come to grips with what had happened and to forgive himself.
Levitt originally grew up in Washington D.C. with a mother who was a politician. He was a part of the school choir, yet grew up jewish. Levitt understands that he is not the only one with a unique story and he is excited to help others share their own stories.
