MANU MANZO

Projecting emotional vocals over downtempo R&B moods, Manu Manzo shakes up Latin music with a simmering shot of soul. The Latin GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer, songwriter, and producer enchants with a signature style that’s both smooth and spellbinding. Growing up in Caracas, Venezuela, she developed a diverse musical palette as a kid, listening to everyone from Ella Fitzgerald to Celia Cruz and Alejandro Sanz. Relocating to Miami at eleven-years-old, she eventually gained admission to the world-renowned Berklee College of Music. She formally introduced herself with the independent debut EP, Como Soy. It made waves as she garnered a nomination in the category of “Best New Artist” at the 2015 Latin GRAMMY® Awards. She only increased her momentum with 2018’s Intermedio EP before unveiling Después de la 12 in 2019. “Te Quiero Ver” [with Feid] notably amassed 1.2 million YouTube views and 469K Spotify streams. 2019 also saw her represent Venezuela in MIDEM’s Accelerator program as her banger “Caminando” generated 5.1 million YouTube views. She also represented Venezuela in 2020s Viña Del Mar festival. During 2021, she joined forces with Paty B for “Grande” before serving up the sultry “SacaLaCamara.” To date, she has gathered 10 million-plus YouTube views and 10 million streams in addition to landing looks from Telemundo, Miami New Times, and Billboard who cited her as a “Latin Artist on the Rise.” Now, Manu Manzo only continues to captivate with more music to come.

LUNA EN GEMINIS

NEW MUSIC

The moon governs the emotions, the natives with Moon in Gemini tend to have a complex and restless nature, they are not satisfied with contemplating something from only one point of view. They have two seemingly contradictory sides that complement each other beautifully, such as Ying and Yang.

Astrologically, Manu Manzo's Moon is in Gemini, and in this new album she wishes to express that duality concept. Developing once again her usual youthful yet poetic writing, musically supported by a more misterious Side A and a nore pop Side B.

In this album Manu wanted to highlight women voices and presence throughout the entire project, so she worked in collaboration with female songwriters, producers, mix & master, and engineers.
