Singer & Actor, Luis Paulino

Luis M. Paulino Nova is a singer and an actor from the Dominican Republic. 

During his early childhood he was part of his school and church’s chorus and music groups as he sang and played the flute and violin and was later introduced to his catastrophic family’s past story; his grandmother “Socorro Martinez” won a local singing competition of a Dominican city called San Francisco de Macoris in the 1950’s in which lamentably few months after his grandfather’s mistress because of jealousy assassinated her. Since then Paulino began to dream about becoming a singer and an actor.

Only five years after moving to the U.S., Luis graduated as the salutatorian from high school and has been the lead character on theater productions from Chelsea CTE High School, Washington Irving High School, and the City College of New York, performing as Zoser, in the ‘Aida Musical’ and Tiger, in ‘Dog Park’. He has had the enormous privilege to attend Philips Exeter Academy, in which he hosted and sang at one the most prestigious assemblies there.   Luis’ film credits include the Independent film, ‘Unspeakable’ and ‘Parallel’, as well as short student films at NYU and the New York Film Academy.  He is proud to be part of the HOW WE ARE CONNECTED production and looks forward to exploring how Caribbean heritage and showing how Caribbean peoples are connected to others in the world.
