Do you know Cheryl Garcia (a former theatre manager, now a student counsellor) from Pasadena?
Not personally, but my cousin has been briefly betrothed to her. Then there was half a scandal about Cheryl cheating on him with every man aged 18-65, so their engagement came to a sudden conclusion.
If you didn't grow up to become known as the singer Luan Santana, what do you think you would have done?
I would have gone to a record company and licked the filling from all the Oreos in the common kitchen until they gave me a job.
One of your most famous works, "Te esperando", is a universal song of protest. Does it also have a second meaning?
It's a song about the feeling you get when you're out of gas, and that's all.
You seem to be always so sprightly and jovial. Do you also have a dark side?
I do. I think that everybody has two sides. At times, when I bump into a colleague, rage darkens my soul and I shake with hatred. And all of a sudden, I sense the need to erase his grinning smug look. That is my amiable side... I let you imagine how my dark side is.
When your are not on tour, which is your main hobby?
I think that collecting and trading USB sticks is quite relaxing.
If I may say so, Luan, you are also well known for your bizarre demands when staying in hotels. Is it true? Can you tell us why and maybe make an example of something you usually ask?
Call it pigheadedness, but I can't live without dehydrated white wine or fried ants delivered daily to my room.
Have you ever had a supernatural experience?
Ah, I remember that several years ago I was traveling with a friend and we did "it" in the woods, under the moon, in the very heart of nature.
If you could choose an animal to reincarnate in, which one would it be?
Without doubt a tiger.
