Biography

There are at least three musicians called Lala.

1) LaLa Romero, a singer from California.
2) LALA, a singer from Indonesia.
3) Imre “Lala” Olajos jr., a C64 demoscener who is also a member of the HVSC team.


1) If there are any doubters about the influence of the Internet on the changing landscape of the music industry, the story of singer-songwriter LaLa Romero will change their minds. LaLa’s fate was to be anything but a pop music star or, at least conventional wisdom said so. After all, a girl from the largely Latino neighborhoods of Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley with talent might impress a few friends and family, but who outside the neighborhood would ever hear her?

LaLa’s passion for music started at an early age. “Growing up in a big crazy family, music was all that I had that was mine! MY thoughts, MY feelings MY songs… there was no other place for me to express my dreams & frustrations.” That expression grew into a career aspiration. By the time she graduated high school she thought she was poised to take the world by storm. Unfortunately things didn’t fall into place overnight. Beautiful, talented, and interesting, yet many executives tried to make her fit a model that just wasn’t right. “I’ve been in girl groups & had solo deals where I was limited and misunderstood- the ‘token “spicy” Latina’. There’ aren’t many dimensions to that girl, and I knew to be fully valued I was going to have to break down doors and be ‘the example’.”
