About Us

With international backgrounds, Proyecto Luz brings a combination of Jazz, Classical and Latin music together for a unique blend of improvised music. Although mainly a trio, we often perform with larger groups depending on the venue and composition.

Through music, we strive connect with something greater than ourselves. We search for that rare moment when something beautiful flows through us like light filling a room. With each composition and improvisation, we try to bring this feeling to life. We hope to convey this feeling to the audience when we perform and share these exstatic moment.
