Watch and Listen: Laura Lizcano from the WRTI 90.1 Performance Studio

Sep 5, 2018

Vocalist Laura Lizcano moved to Lykens, PA from her native Columbia when she was ten years old. She felt like a bit of an outsider at school because everything was different in America (even the pronunciation of her own name). When she realized that people really wanted to hear Latin American music, her life took a positive turn. 

Laura Lizcano and her band performed in the WRTI 90.1 Performance Studio on September 5, and exhibited  the eclectic style she has developed throughout her studies at Temple University's Boyer College of Music and Dance. The influence of her private studies with the likes of Sachal Vasandani, Joanna Pascale and Greg Kettinger are also apparent.

Watch the performance on the WRTI Facebook page, hosted by J. Michael Harrison.
