From São Paulo, Larissa Baq – known to her growing international fan-base as LaBaq – is one of the leading figures on the Brazilian alternative music scene. Whether solo with just her guitar, or using loops and effects to build spacious reflective structures, or finely honing funky grooves with her bass player and drummer, her soulfully intimate voice relates her tales of life and love with a seductive grace.

With a dedicated following in Brazil and Portugal, she has also performed in Spain, Germany, Russia, Chile, Argentina and Sweden; a modern troubadour playing in venues of all sizes from living rooms to major festival stages. Her 2016 album VOA has so far garnered over a million plays on Spotify and her official video-clips have attracted hundreds of thousands of viewers on YouTube.
