Luka was born and raised in Japan and is currently settled in London. Her passions are music, art, and history and she especially finds beauty in the glamorous world of vintage culture and jazz.
Her unique singing background started in Nagauta (traditional Japanese music which accompanies the Kabuki theatre). Later, Luka joined a jazz band in Japan. She fell in love not only with jazz songs but also the style: gorgeous dresses, perfect hair, make-up and charismatic personalities such as her idols Julie London and Peggy Lee.
Performing alongside a professional jazz band, Luka’s soft, warm voice carries elegance and sophistication. Performing jazz standards with an air of romance, beautiful ballads, up-tempo bossa nova and Latin pieces, Luka’s live sets are perfectly suited to hotel residencies, drinks reception and private parties.
Creative to her core, Luka has created a look and sound that brings glamour to every stage she graces. Having worked as a professional make-up artist for 10 years, Luka styles her own hair and makeup for every performance. Much of her wardrobe is bespoke too; with Luka often sewing her own stunning dresses.
Whatever your occasion, Luka and her professional band will provide a truly special performance with a memory-making selection of songs.
