Luna Blues Machine: Two sisters, one cd & lots of livin' & learnin'

The multi-talented Cervantes sisters have roots in Back of the Yards and Chicago’s Southside but their music casts a much wider net and draws inspiration from a very diverse mix of music genres.

The Luna Blues Machine fuses acoustic hip-hop with soul, folk, latin and any other genre that moves them. Fronted by sisters Belinda and Maritza Cervantes (mandolin and guitar), LBM stands out as one of the most experimental acoustic music acts working in Chicago today. With the accompaniment of bass and drums, their feel-good rhythms, engaging stories, tight harmonies and charismatic hooks will make you want to getcha self a little luna love.
