About

Luciana was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. where she received her first singing lessons at the J. J. Castro Conservatory. In the Mozarteum of Salzburg (Austria) she studied vocal technique with Lilian Sukis and repertoire and interpretation with Gaiva Bandzinaite and Alessandro Misciasci (répétiteur of the Salzburger Festspiele). She has improved her qualifications in New York in the Old Italian School of Singing with Master Anthony Frisell (Professor of Sandor Konya and Flaviano Labó, among others, and author of numerous books on the subject).

Throughout her academic training she has attended Master Classes taught by trajectory singers such as the Italian tenor Antonio Carangelo (former student of Ettore Campogagliani- Master of Mirella Freni, Luciano Pavarotti and Mario del Monaco) and Conrnelio Murgu (Director of the Timisuara Opera, Romania).

During her first years in Germany she was repeatedly awarded with a scholarship from the Akademischer Gesang Verein München (Munich Academic Singing Society) and was part of the Munich Philharmonic Choir with which she sang in very important concert halls such as the Gasteig (Munich Philharmonic Theater) and the Hercules Saal, under the direction of great directors, including the great James Levine. In this city, personifying the Lucinde Demon and the first Nymph, she sang at the premiere of Gluck's "Armida".

Her professional activity as a soloist has led her to perform numerous opera, oratory and Art Song concerts in Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Mexico and Argentina, among which the Tribute to Alberto Ginastera stands out at the Konzerthaus in Berlin organized by the Argentine Embassy of Berlin. She has also worked for the Salzburger Stadt (Municipality of Salzburg) and for the Salzburger Konzertgesellschaft (Salzburg Concert Agency specialized in Mozartian repertoire).

Parallel to her activity as a singer, she regularly teach people from all over the world. Her love for the music, and specially for singing, and her passion and curiosity for vocal technique led her to carry out an intense research work on the different singing methods through the centuries, from the origins of lyrical singing to the way as we know it today.​

 

Recently she participated in the recording of the CD “Canto por el Agua” by Miguel Bareilles not only as a singer but also as artistic co-producer. This Project has been awarded by the Global Music Awards with two silver medals for Best Composition and Best Album  and was carried out in Berlin, the city where she currently reside.

About Me

"I am a cheerful, temperamental and very curious person. When a topic gains my interest I like to inform myself widely about it and understand it thoroughly.  This is a characteristic that led me to deeply investigate the breathing mechanisms and the functioning of the voice for so many years. I don't give up easily and I can be very persistent if I feel that something is good for me. I am very interested in the different branches of alternative medicine and I have a holistic view of the body, voice and life.

I play classical guitar and I sing since I was nine years old and during my childhood and adolescence I could spend hours singing from argentinian rock, pop and folklore to The Beatles and everything I liked and inspired me. Currently I returned to the classical guitar and I love immersing myself in that intimate world with studies by Carulli, María Linemann or a waltz. It simply gives me a lot of peace.

I really like playing sports, yoga, cantienica and I love dancing. I have also done Feldenkrais for a long time and I use tools from all these disciplines in my singing and coaching classes.

I read everything, from classic literature to alternative healing methods, bioenergetics or quantum physics and I have a long process of personal transformation with therapists from the Barbara Ann Brennan School of Healing.

I love to guide and accompany people on their way and help them get closer to themselves. I believe in a world in which, if each person listened more to his heart and acted in resonance with him, personal and collective happiness and peace would reign. And I believe in Love, above all things."
