Norka Luque: Changing the World through Her Music

For several years’ the Latino music community has been producing pop superstars. Examples are internationally celebrated artists such as Shakira, Gloria Estefan, Ricky Martin and many others. Currently, the Venezuelan pop artist, Norka Luque is the artist making headlines. Her lyrics are inspirational and carry a powerful message of hope.

NorkaLuque was born in Caracas, Venezuelan busiest city. She grew and attended high school in her hometown. Unlike other artists who indulge in music because of the money and fame, Norka became a professional singer to do more than that. Her main intention of joining the lucrative music industry was to touch and change people’s lives. She has succeeded in doing exactly this through her music.

Ms. Martinez started singing when she was a little girl (eight years old). She participated in different singing competitions while in school. Some of the singing competitions she took part in include “The “Golden Voice” and “School Festival of Gaitas.” Ms. Martinez graduated from high school then she headed to France to continue her education.

Ms. Martinez enrolled in a French school where she took a business course. After four years of hard work and dedication, she finally graduated from the business school. She was now ready to start working. She relocated to Monaco where she got a job in the banking sector.

This was when she decided to move to the United States. She knew that it was easier being noticed from the United States than any other country. She settled in Miami, a home to many Latino superstars. At first, Norka Luque found it quite challenging; she started performing in nightclubs in the South Beach area.

However, her big break came when the legendary producer Emilio Estefan attended one of her performances. Emilio fell in love with her unique voice. He decided to take Norka under his arms to nature and develop her into the artist she is today.

NorkaLuque’s first solo “Como lo hacestu” was released in 2011. This hit single enjoyed some success and even got her a nomination for the Best Pop Female Artist of the Year at the Lo Nuestro Award. Her second solo “Milagro” followed shortly.

Her most recent work is “Tomorrowland.” This single has been received warmly by her audience. Ms. Martinez still has a long way to go, but if we are to judge from her past work, she is surely going to enjoy even much greater success.

Despite Recent Economic Setbacks Brazil Is Still An Important Exporter


Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world by area, and Brazil has the sixth largest population in the world. Even though the economy has been weak over the last two years, Brazil still has the seventh largest economy in the world. The Brazilian people are a resilient, creative, and an enterprising group. Brazil has built a reputation as a BRICS nation. Brazil is a major player on the world’s export stage. The country has more natural resources that most people can name. Brazilian companies export red meat, soybeans, poultry, sugar cane, shoes, and building supplies to countries around the world. One of the top building material suppliers in the world is based in Sao Paulo. That company is Eucatex.



Brazil has a lot of eucalyptus trees, and in the 1950s, the trees were cut down to produce floorboards and ceiling tiles. A ceiling tile made from eucalyptus wood was a new product in 1954. Only one company in the state of Sao Paulo produced a wood ceiling tile and that company wasn’t really a company. The first wood ceiling tiles were produced by a sawmill owned by the Maluf family. But when the sawmill started shipping the eucalyptus wood tiles to customers, Eucatex was born.



In 1987, Flavio Maluf, the grandson of the founder of Eucatex, joined the company. Flavio knew he would be the president of Eucatex one day, but before he assumed that role, he went to New York and studied at NYU. Flavio studied the U.S. consumer market while he lived in New York. Flavio was named the president of the company in 1997, and almost immediately, he changed the business mentality of Eucatex. Maluf turned Eucatex into a modern day environmentally friendly exporter that conserved natural resources by using renewable energy in company factories.



Flavio also expanded the product line and that gave the company the opportunity to sell those products to the home improvement stores in North America and Europe. Today, Eucatex is one of the leading exporters of MDF panels, paints, floorboards and varnishes to retailers in the U.S. and Europe.  Find Flavio personally on Facebook, and get his recent take on taxes on Infomoney.
