Ingrid Laubrock


Originally from Germany, Ingrid Laubrock started having music lessons at the age of four and began to play classical piano and sing in local choirs aged eight. Her first recording experience dates from that time, singing the solo voice in an arrangement for an a capella choir. Throughout her childhood she performed in church choirs and public concerts at the local music school.

In 1989 Ingrid left Germany for London where she took up the alto saxophone.

A year of studies with ex-Jazz Messenger Jean Toussaint followed in 1992. Soprano and tenor followed shortly afterward. In 1993 she met singer Monica Vasconcelos and guitarist Ife Tolentino, both from Sao Paulo in Brazil.
