Shara Lunon

Shara Lunon is a transdisciplinary artist based in Brooklyn, NY. She is the product of the evolution of Black American musical traditions. As a poet, vocalist, composer, and improviser, her art finds the ethereal in the chaotic. With voice as the foundation, Shara’s music is an exploration of text and sound that seamlessly weaves through the ongoing relationship of struggle, resilience, and resolution. Her goal is to challenge lassitude and in its place, instill hope.

Shara has collaborated with artists including Darius Jones, Ches Smith, Asia Stewart, Milagros Art Collective, Chris Williams, Lester St. Louis, Luke Stewart, Lesley Mok, Laura Cocks, Joy Guidry, and the International Contemporary Ensemble. Her work has been featured in The Gothamist and has won residencies with OneBeat, Papillon Farm, Amanda + James Pollinate residency, and Metropolis Ensemble Flame Keeper. Shara has also won awards from Audiofemme Agenda Grant, MATA Presents Grant to premiere her work “Bitter Fruits” at Roulette Intermedium. Currently, Shara is working as a session artist with Ches Smith, Darian Donovan Thomas, and Innova Recording Label and the Black Science Fiction Series to release new solo works in the spring of 2024.
