"Cumbia gets sophisticated...La Yegros has serious stage presence. But theres substance to her music cumbia at its core but with some earthy Pachamama influences with a haunting, siren-like voice." Songlines

La Yegros is a powerful presence in Buenos Aires underground scene her vibrant sound and unique voice, along with a larger-than-life performance presence, gives her the point-of-view of an artist with South American flair, but a global mindset.

La Yegros is from 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. Her debut album Viene De Mi features a wide spectrum of genres: tropical rhythms, Argentine folk, reggae, dancehall, soul, and arabic music.

Confident and vibrant in approach, shes been championed by MTV Iggy, as well as by Fader Magazine, who hailed La Yegros raw urgency while sounding completely relaxed and conversational. 

Theres 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.
