Its roots with multiple ramifications offer as evidence a mixed music, sung in English, French and Spanish.
Luna Silva's voice and compositions carry her emotions, her quest for spirituality or her social demands. Grows up in a circus world and nourished by her travels, she places them in a vocal intonation or in a groove.
What fascinates her is telling stories, making people dance as much as making people cry, opening their hearts as much as inviting them to listen to themselves.
On stage, here is Luna Silva & the Wonders!
Two guys, two girls for a tonic sound, worked, hyper rhythmic, made of breaks and reminders on sometimes deliberately wobbly rhythms to better support the innate groove of the voice.

After an intimate first album, with certain dark and cold tones evoking an atmosphere of blue, this second album is a contrasting work by offering a more lively and joyful vision. Warm, red, yellow, orange tones are offered to the public to immerse them in a sunny, cheerful, friendly atmosphere, all in "wonders".
This next album will evoke the flow of life in its entirety : inspiration and expiration linked. It will encompass us with this movement and this feeling of life. This subtle gesture between what comes out, like a relief, a relaxation, and what comes in via the breath, like a new and fair wind in us.
This album, partly inspired by the theme of water, will immerse us in a bath of sounds. Without distinction between what is containing or contained, to make body and harmony with the inside and the outside.
The Mediterranean world then revealed itself during the development of this album. Its cosmopolism, with rhythms that can remind us of the Gnawa, or Greek rebetiko songs, but also the polyphonic choirs of Corsica or Sardinia. The sea itself, which evokes horizontality; the water keeps coming back like a thread through tears, drops of sweat, a flood, a river that crosses us, a lake that soothes us.
This album was born from the absolute need to feel alive, to feel strong, to dance. The moments of intimacy will not be forgotten, but above all we will feel a warmth of live, of vibrating bodies, like a "great exhale".
In "Breathe Out" we hear sound echoes from the five continents, the complicity of scholarly and popular music and inspired acoustic prowess. Through festive moments, celebrations and confidences, we discover a magical tradition invented by Luna Silva & The Wonders.
In the title that gives name to the album, "Breathe Out", the mandola pays homage to the gumbri of the Moroccan gnawas. Corps de jour is perfumed with Cuban essence, Blue Mania evokes the proliferation of everyday screens and Marée Haute was born by dancing a gavotte from the Aven.
In total 12 songs, 12 stories, 12 universes.
Breathe Out is a jubilant exhalation after the constraints of sanitary isolation, a vital breath of energy and poetry. A unique universe cut out for sharing.
This new album evokes the flow of life in its entirety: inspiration and expiration linked. It encompasses us with this movement and this sensation of life. This subtle gesture between what comes out, like a relief, a relaxation, and what comes in via the breath, like a new and just wind within us. Warm, red, yellow, orange tones offer themselves to the mind of the public to plunge it into a sunny, cheerful, friendly atmosphere, all in “wonders”.
It is an album inspired in part by the theme of water and plunges us into a bath of sound. Without distinction between what is container or contained, to make body and harmony with the inside and the outside.
