Through the medium of music we transcend the barriers between the old and new. Our goal with is to reconnect listeners to their roots, wherever they may lie buried. Being children of first and second generation immigrants, our project explores origins and identities. We emphasize the importance of tradition, even in modern times where it seems obsolete.
This idea of reappropriation is the pillar of our vision. Our objective is to encourage listeners to come on the journey of reunification with cultural knowledge and lost stories.
Triana y Luca is a Benelux based duo that merges melancholic melodies with storytelling and traditional music. Their compositions built upon myths, fables, and stories from different Iberoamerican cultures. Inspired by sounds of Sefardi, al-Andaluz, and Indigenous cultures, Triana y Luca always play to tell a story.
The duo is made up of Triana Segovia (Mexican/Canada/Spanish) who is a multidimensional visual artist, poet, and vocalist, and Luca Vaillancourt (Luxembourg/Spain); guitarist, composer and student at the Jazz Conservatory in Maastricht and lover of bossa nova and contemporary jazz.
In 2022 Triana y Luca were part of a season artist residency at Intro in Situ in which they produced their debut EP which they will release in during 2023.
