Nighttown is named after the Dublin Red-Light district in Joyce’s novel Ulysses. It offers the ambiance of Irish pubs and turn-of-the-century New York bars and the food is great.

Vocalist, guitarist, and singer/songwriter from Brazil hits the Nighttown stage! Featuring Patrick Graney on percussion.
Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Luca Mundaca is the latest in a long line of great Brazilian artists who have gained international acclaim. Luca is from a small town just south of Sao Paolo. From her early teens on, she has been fine tuning her musical gifts. Early on she quickly mastered the standard Bossa Nova repertoire and she became adept at interpreting the work of the masters.
With the release of her debut CD "Day by Day" in 2006, it was clear that Luca Mundaca is a musical artist in her prime. Shortly after releasing the CD an unsolicited copy was sent to Putumayo records in New York City. So impressed were the Putumayo people they immediately added her to their best selling "Brazilian Lounge" CD. She was featured alongside several major Brazilian artists on that CD including Bebel Gilberto, Paula Morlenbaum, and Marcos Valle.
Luca Mundaca’s new album Primeiro, features all original compositions
Luca won 2008 Independent Music Award in the World fusion category. In addition to her own albums, Luca’s work has been featured in movies End of watch (2012) The Visitor (2007), the Showtime series Californication (2007), the independent movie Kissing Paris by Anna Kannava (2008), and most recently in Brazilian TV show TiTiTi telenovela (2010).
Now splitting her time between Brazil and the US, Luca Munda is truly a citizen of the world. Mundaca is currently making Cleveland her U.S. base.
