Venezuelan Songstress Norka Luque Takes on the World of Latin Music
Norka Luque, known simply as “Norka,” is a Latin singing sensation who has found success with a dreamy style that incorporates a jazzy upbeat feel. The Venezuelan chanteuse, who was originally discovered by legendary Latin music producer Emilio Estefan, has been singing since the age of 13. Since beginning her association with Estefan four years ago, she has worked with some of the top Latin session musicians and songwriters in the production of her two hit singles. In an interview with a Venezuelan website, Norka said, “I come from a blessed family, from far-flung places, full of experiences, life lessons, other languages and cultures, that led me to realize that music was my destiny.”
Originally from Caracas, Norka Luque spent her childhood studying dance and performance, and decided to continue her studies in France, earning degrees in Culinary Arts, Marketing, and Fashion. It was during her time abroad that her professional career began to take shape when she started singing with a band. The experience proved invaluable and led her to take her craft more seriously. She soon decided to pursue a career in music, and shortly after moving to Miami, she embarked on a professional career. She began her collaboration with Estefan four years ago, and his mentoring and expertise have been key to her success. Her first single “Miracle” was a success that combined Caribbean and Mediterranean rhythms in a quick and catchy pop track. A number of well-known arrangers, musicians, and songwriters, such as the Gaitán brothers, Archie Pena, and Luigi Giraldo helped Norka craft a debut song that charted in the US, Puerto Rico, and Venezuela in 2012.
Norka followed up the success of “Miracle,” with “Ese Es Mi Cariño” (This is My Love), which was also written by the Gaitán brothers. The tune has a more tropical feel along with a dance beat and features Puerto Rican reggaeton team Angel and Chriz. Norka is not slowing down, however. The singer continues to make music that crosses national borders and cultural boundaries. It is her goal to infuse her unique style with a positive message and a contagious beat.
