Her natural and inviting delivery has charmed audiences since the start of her career in Argentina and then in Europe where she toured with Tango and Latin Jazz Bands during the late 90’s. 

Laura spent her early years intensely involved in the cultural life of Buenos Aires performing theatre and singing, then moved to Europe and toured with several bands while studying music in Switzerland. After graduating from the Music Academy of Basel in Switzerland, she moved to southern California in 2002 and formed her Latin jazz band, featuring Juan Pedro Estanga, Paul Perez, and John Chiodini.  Traveling back to her native Buenos Aires, Laura regularly performs and records with producers Juan Estanga and Juan Pablo Lazo. From this collaborative effort, “Perlas”, Laura’s debut album created in 2007, is a rousing mix of Flamenco, Jazz, Tango, and Folkloric-inspired songs.
