The South African artist, Louise du Toit, is an award-winning musician, vocalist, composer, lyricist, writer, director, actress and painter. Apart from her solo career as a performer, she is the main singer of FUEGO DE LUNAR, a Greece-based band founded by her and Athenian musician, Chris Koulouridis. During the past years, they have given more than 4500 live performances at venues in Europe, and they are currently in the midst of their Summer Concert Season of 2017, in which they will be regularly joined again by young guest artist, Stamatis Seraphim.
In May 2016, Louise became the female vocalist of a grand operatic show titled "Sempre Libera", in which she performed weekly with Prima Voce, the three South African tenors, at the beautiful Atlantico Grand Mediterraneo Resort and Spa in Ermones in Corfu, for a period of six months. On Sunday, the 7th of May, the four artists started their Summer Concert Season of 2017 with an energetic show at the same venue again, where they will be performing until November.
Louise is very active in the field of animal advocacy, using her music and art to spread a worldwide message of environmental and wildlife preservation. In 2015, her song,"Ode to Magnificence", was featured in the award-winning film, "Medicine of the Wolf", together with the music of Moby, Bonnie Rait, the legendary James Taylor and other well-known artists. Directed by Julia Huffman, this dramatic film is a feature-length documentary that follows the work of Jim Brandenburg, renowned environmentalist and "National Geographic" photographer who has spent 44 years in the field, studying wolves that are now at risk of eradication.
