Biography

Consuelo Luz draws from her own fascinating Spanish Basque, Sephardic and Mapuche Indian ancestral background.

Her first album DEZEO, co-produced by Grammy-winning producer Jim Wilson and with Ray Obiedo and Jeff Silberman of the Bay Area, is a "" style compilation of ancient prayers and love ballads. Consuelo's other recordings of her own original songs include the recent MISSING WATER, YO SE QUE YO AMO, ESPIRITU DE AMOR recorded in Havana with Cuban band Mezcla and SE FUE LA NIÑA recorded in Santiago, . Her new, just-released CD ADIO is a continuation of her exploration of her Jewish roots with some South American indigenous influence in the form of native flutes, celebrating Consuelo's own indigenous ancestry and the growing movement of Mestizo/Sephardic Hispanics rediscovering their CryptoJewish history.

Raised in Greece, the Philippines, Spain, Italy and Peru by Chilean/Cuban parents, Luz completed Cambridge University's Overseas Spanish Literature A Level in Lima, Peru, and went on to study Literature and Music at New York's New School for Social Research and Drama at the Stella Adler Theater Studio in New York City where she also did street theater. As a singer/songwriter and actress, Consuelo has performed internationally in numerous concerts, one-woman shows, TV, stage and film appearances including the movie The Milagro Beanfield War, directed by Robert Redford. Consuelo's international performances include synagogues across the US, the Parliament of World Religions in Barcelona, Spain, the Sephardic Arts Festival in Los Angeles, Les Orientales Sacred Music Festival in France, the World Expo in Germany and, most recently, the San Fernando Cathedral in San Antonio, TX, for the 275th Anniversary of the founding of the City of San Antonio.

Consuelo's music has been featured in many prestigious compilations such as Buddha Bar II, Putumayo's A Jewish Odyssey, Chill Out in Paris, Corso Como 10 and Tulku.
