The Valencian artist combines the music from the Spanish Levant and its historical/cultural circulation with certain regions from Asia, Africa, Europe, and Latin America where Luis has resided as an ethnomusicology lecturer and composer during the last two decades.

During his artistic career, Luis has released sixteen solo albums and multiple collaborations within the World Music industry such as with Mariem Hassan from Western Sahara, Mazaher and the Zar group of Abu Gheit in Egypt, Ahmed Muktar from Iraq, Du Jiazen from China, Hope Masike from Zimbabwe, Ramata Diakite from Mali, Sol Denverano and Grupo Sikisiri from Mexico, or Madosini from South Africa, among others.

Thanks to his Mellon Foundation and Instituto Valenciano de Cultura awards, Luis has published the 'Middle Passage' trilogy (recorded in Malaysia, South Africa, and Spain from 2019-2020) and a tetralogy entitled 'The Unknown Spanish Levant' (recorded in Mexico, Egypt, and Spain from 2021-2022), performing in the mentioned countries and an international six-month tour in 2022.

During 2023/2024, Luis is launching the tetralogy 'The Unknown Spanish Levant' with a nomad quartet (group members depend on the continent) and two workshops entitled 'The Unknown Spanish Levant' and 'Africa: North to South' at universities and cultural centers.

"Luis reflects the transoceanic circulation of Hispanic music with the African and Asian continents." - World Music Central
