Hanna Burge

Canadian-born Hannah Burgé Luviano is a musician and educator who blends elements of jazz, pop and Latin American-based music into a sound that is uniquely her own.
Currently finishing her debut recording, her writing and singing has been described as influenced by such artists as: Tania Maria, Chick Corea, Kurt Elling, Dianne Reeves, Tierney Sutton and Luciana Souza. Bassist Paco Luviano, and Hannah, have co-produced Green River Sessions, due out spring 2013, and have worked together on original compositions and arrangements of jazz standards. Her recently released single “Sunshine Samba” has received attention via online mediums and radio, on Jazz FM 91.1., and her single “Black Velvet” has garnered praise for her unique approach.
Like some of her contemporaries, Hannah first received music training through the Church, and studied piano through the Royal Conservatory of Music, and York University. She has been a featured vocalist, and has performed with esteemed ensembles, such as Samba Squad, the Dominic Mancuso band, and the Nathaniel Dett Chorale, under the direction of Brainerd Blyden-Taylor. She has had the privilege of working and recording with world class musicians including: Hendrik Meurkens, Mary Alessi, Hilario Duran, Robi Botos, Paco Luviano, Mark Kelso, Tony Zorzi, Domenic Mancuso, Anthony Michelli, Kelly Jefferson, and Njacko Backo.
Her arrangements and compositions have been featured in theatre shows, live productions, and for film. In 2008, she co-composed and recorded the soundtrack for The Devil’s Tail, a Canadian, independent, feature-length film set in Merída, México that won awards in Canada, the United States and in México.
