I am Luisa Boshnjaku, (stage name LUI$A). I started singing and playing piano when I was a toddler. I produce and am currently learning music theory. My first cover was “Valerie” by Amy Winehouse in 2014, and I started releasing original songs in 2019.
I was born in Long Island, New York, and lived in Queens, New York. After a while, my family and I moved back to Prishtina, Kosovo. Both of my parents are musicians (my mom is a soprano and my dad is a music producer).
“I want to influence the youth to produce and create, to accept their flaws, and unleash their creativity through art.”
My style of music is very diverse. I used to listen to a lot of heavy metal and punk music. My style is inspired by Jun Fukamachi, Rina Sawayama, Sade, A tribe called quest, Jimi Hendrix and Asap Rocky. All of these artists display a different and unique type of style, all of which can be recognized on my tracks, thus presenting a contemporary yet ageless sound to the mainstream scene.
I have recently performed in VFILES Pass the Aux Remote sessions 5\21\2020. I have performed in many charity events in Kosovo, one of them being Kosovo's Philanthropist. I had about three gigs in Kosovo (School graduation events, and many more) I wrote many songs for Kosovar and German artists and I am currently working on my own EP.
The EP is being recorded in Dreamhouse Studio, Kosovo. It is inspired by the 80s underground ballroom culture and Club Kids in New York. I feel like I experiment a lot with my style and not afraid to try something new and look out of the ordinary. I strive on being diverse and unique through my music, as well as my style, and am always prepared to bring something new to the public.
