The Lua Project

Based in Charlottesville, Virginia, the Lua Project is a musical collective that performs a blend of original & traditional music from Mexico, Appalachia, and the Atlantic Basin. Sophia first connected with Lua Project founders Estela Diaz Knott and Dave Berzonsky in 2017 and in 2021 began performing regularly with the group on trumpet, jarana, guitar, vocals, and percussion. The Lua Project offers hybrid educational and musical programming for schools, universities, and community groups, and also performs at festivals and community celebrations.
