Hunter de Luz

Hunter de Luz ( Karen Hunter)  takes her audience on a sublime musical journey with evocative melodies that draw from a fusion of world music and rootsy grooves. Karen loops her voice to create heart charged soundscapes blending her many influences in an entertaining and original fashion. Although her voice is her main instrument Karen adds guitar, mandolin, fiddle, percussion as appropriate.

Karen Hunter’s journey into songwriting traverses over 35 years and Hunter de Luz is the name given to the character who has emerged through this adventure. Hunter skywalks through uncharted territory, guided by her personal map of the cosmos, creating space to travel with her audience.
