Biography

Buenos Aires, Argentina

La Yegros resides in the pulsing heart of cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, but her family hails from the tropical climates found in the rural rain forests of the north, bordering Brazil. She received classical, conservatory training in music and got her break when she played before thousands as part of the De La Guarda experimental theatre.

Confident and vibrant in approach, she’s been championed by MTV Iggy, as well as by Fader Magazine, who hailed La Yegros’ “raw urgency while sounding completely relaxed and conversational”. Listening to her sing, there’s the swagger of a Kelis or even Jamaican dancehall combined with the indomitable homespun wisdom of a vintage soul queen, such as Laura Lee or Angie Stone.

There’s a sass to her singing, at once fresh and urgent yet aged in experience and attitude, that cuts through the male-dominated contemporary cumbia, drawing on both deep folk traditions and cutting edge beats.
