Biography

Gabi Luncă (b.1938) is a Romany singer of urban lăutarească music from Romania, born in Vărbilău, Prahova County.

Her father was also a lăutar (a member of a professional clan of Romany musicians), a violinist much respected among lăutari because he was a “notist” (he knew to read music). Her mother died when she was little, and this left a major impression on her life - many of her song deal with the “mother” theme.

She was a favourite of Romania’s communist ruler Nicolae Ceauşescu and his wife Elena.

In the later part of her life, Gabi Luncă converted to Pentecostalism and started singing exclusively religious music.

She was married to the great accordionist Ion Stan-Onoriu.
