Lara Polangco / Bio

Lara Polangco's "Tupelo vocals" (Georgia Music Magazine) are bluesy, funky, tribal, and very "Lara." She's been jumping around the genres in a few different projects (HomeGrown Revival--a politically edgy bluegrass/folk group, High Society--a revolutionary spiritual hip-hop collaboration with Sho Baraka, Larkin Grimm--the two young women recorded in their mutual hometown of Dahlonega and toured the east coast as a mystical/tribal folk duo in 2006..)

Lara currently plays gigs solo or with a few of her favorite musicians--drawing from a lovely pool of "musical ninjas who also happen to be her good friends".

This A+ list grows daily, but generally includes some of these fine men: John Keane, Jason Kenney, Eddie Glikin, Brandon Gilliard, James C. Barret, Jamie Portee, John Grimm..

The show she puts on is sass-classy with an almost exclusively original set list. Her original tunes are lyrical, introspective, sometimes political or humorous, but always melodic. A typical show with the band often includes a drummer on cajon or a small kit, lead instrumentation, and bass.

Lara, herself ,plays clawhammer-style banjo, guitar, mountain dulcimer, and sometimes shakes the tambourine. A live show will likely involve laughter, hollering, yodeling, foot-stomping, and poetically imaginative explications about her music.

Polangco is recording an album with producer and artist Jamie Portee, anticipated 2013 release.
