Norka Luque Continues Bringing Latino Music to the World

Norka Luque is guided by renowned producer, Emilio Estefan, and her own imagination. This gives birth to some of the most creative music from Latin America the world has seen. She has been putting out music since 2011 and is not even close to finishing.

She was musical as a child and enrolled in various classes including voice lessons and training in piano, flamenco and ballet all with unwavering support from her parents.

Later in life Norka studied in France as a student of the Business Administration department and ultimately graduated with various degrees including Marketing, Fashion and Culinary Arts. During this time in France Norka began performing with a band.

It wasn’t until renowned producer Emilio Estefan began noticing her 4 years ago and brought her into the music industry to pursue this dream professionally.

“This is an opportunity that many talented artists dream of having. I feel so blessed that Emilio liked my musical project, working with him is a miracle, a school of life; and everyday I learn something new,” Norka says.

Through faith and conviction Norka was able to endure some of the trials and tribulations of life which helped brought about an appreciation for the simple miracle of being alive.

Her career began to take off in 2011 when her first single immediately garnered attention in the industry. The song was composed by Venezuelan Archie Pena and it went on to gain Norka a nomination for “Female Pop Artist of the Year” in “Premios Lo Nuestro”.

By 2012 Norka Luque released her second single titled “Miracle”, in honor of the title of her then forthcoming album title. This son was also written by Archie Pena and went through an interesting production process in which various arrangers created a number of versions of the song. These arrangers included Cucco Pena, who made a salsa version, which was ranked number 1 on the Record Report in Venezuela for 14 weeks.

DJ Ralphi Rosario remixed the song into a dance version in English which became number 11 on the Billboard Dance Club. Later, an urban version was remixed with the collaboration of popular urban artist Dominican El Cata.

Norka’s latest single is “Tomorrowland” and has unveiled the diversity of this artist and is an indication of what we can expect from her in the future.

Norka is currently preparing for a launch of new music in 2016.
