Lua Hadar with Twist


Lua Hadar is a multi-lingual vocalist and actor, a teaching artist and an independent producer. She has a lifelong commitment to cultural exchange and has been inspired by collaborations in Bali, France, Italy, Japan, Russia, Switzerland and Thailand. The mission of her band, Twist, is to give audiences a sense of their common humanity.

Lua Hadar sings her own brand of cosmopolitan jazz influenced by pop, funk, folk, Latin and international cabaret. Instantly accessible and truly exotic, she has been molded by her diverse international experiences. Her fascination with world cultures is reflected in the sophisticated song choices for her band, Twist.

Hadar has charmed audiences from New York's Iridium Jazz Club to Bangkok's Thailand Cultural Center to the Swan Bar in Paris. She has performed numerous times at San Francisco's legendary Fairmont Hotel, as well as The Plush Room, The Rrazz Room, Jazz at Pearl's, Society Cabaret at Hotel Rex, Yoshi's Jazz Club and Feinstein's at the Nikko. In addition to the Iridium, New York audiences have welcomed her home at Somethin' Jazz Club and the Cornelia Street Café in Greenwich Village.

Lua has performed as a singer and actor since her New York childhood. Graduating summa cum laude with a B.A. in Theatre Performance, Lua attended the celebrated Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre and The Dalcroze School of Music, also studying with Metropolitan Opera coach, Joan Dornemann. She performs as an emcee and voiceover talent, holds teaching credentials and an M.A. in Education.
