Moonlight Madness, Tāmaki Makaurau based artist LOU’ANA’s debut album, infuses her trademark funk, jazz and soul with a hint of her pacific roots to create "Mystic Soul Music".
The eclectic, free-spirited sound of this three times Pacific Music Awards finalist LOU’ANA is one of unparalleled magic. Having carved a place for herself within Auckland’s vibrant music community over the past six years, and as part of the inimitable funk troupe Hipstamatics, who have delivered the groove to a multitude of festivals across the country.
LOU’ANA’s voice carries the stature of an old soul – a cosmic cocktail of sweet and soulful, with an added gritty blues edge that references the golden age of Etta James, and the rawness of Amy Winehouse. LOU’ANA and her seven piece band have transformed the album into an epic live experience and the show is on the road with upcoming sets at Earth Beat, Splore 2021 and NZ Spirit Festival.
