Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, singer and guitarist Verónica Larc grew up in Buenos Aires and represents the third generation of a family that is passionate about tango. At the age of six, she was initiated to voice, guitar and classical ballet. She arrived in Quebec, Canada in 1978 and continued her studies in classical guitar at the Quebec Music Conservatory in Montreal. At the same time, Verónica increasingly integrated her voice to her musical panorama. By 1986, she makes her first professional appearance as a singer - with her father the bandoneon player Romulo Larrea - at the Universal Exhibition of Vancouver, Canada. Since then, their collaboration has flourished.
Verónica's activities expand beyond her stage performances into musical and artistic production, composition and arrangements. In addition, she has released a solo album entitled Pulsión Latina and has as well been invited to perform at the Koerner Hall (Toronto) for the world première of Canadian composer James Rolfe, entitled TANGO: del amor imprevisto. The multi-talented and versatile artist takes on her South American heritage and her North American experience to guide her passion for world music.
In addition to her numerous participations on CD, she also tours with the Ensemble Romulo Larrea. Now recognized as "La nueva voz del tango" (the new voice of tango), Larc is an accomplished signer and her silky voice blends harmoniously with the tango tradition.
