Musings

"I think I was about 6 years old when I realized I would be a musician. It didn't matter what kind of music I'd choose. I just knew that music would definitely be something that would be an important part of my life."

Layla Angulo


"I try to make my music as interesting and as much fun as possible. And I also dance. Dance is ingrained in me. If I can't move to a piece of music, I can't perform it. I want people to enjoy themselves with my music."

Layla Angulo

Biography

Layla is one of the only female saxophone players/Singers/Band Directors in the world of Latin music today. She began playing the sax at age 10 and grew up traveling back and forth from the East Coast to West Coast.

As a Saxophonist, she spent a year on tour with Reggaeton Superstar, Don Omar, has toured with Tito Puente Jr., the Sugarhorns (Beyonce’s horn players) and played with many other grammy award winning artists.

Hir first CD, Live at The Triple Door was a huge success, especially in South America where her song ‘Que Te Vaya Bien’ became an underground hit. The song, as well as her current compositions, reached Semi-Finalist position in the International Songwriting Competition, and have received other awards and high reviews.

After the release of her 3rd CD, TriAngulo, one of her songs rose to #16 on the Billboard Latin Charts, was played nation-wide on Music Choice, cable television, and heard all across the East Coast Latin Radio stations. Another single off of TriAngulo, ‘Sin Ti’, reached over 200,000 plays on various online streaming sites. She starred in the Music Videos for both songs and 'No Se Como Olvidarte' was released on VEVO. TriAngulo is outstanding perfection by New York's top Salsa, Bachata and Merengue musicians featuring Luisito Quintero, Carlos Cascante, Gio Williams, Mastakriz LaGuira, Jose Frias, Simon Abreu, Luis Marcelo, and many other incredible players.

"Bridging the gap of commercial Latin Music, this album brings a new and bold female voice. It is sexy, sultry, powerful, insightful, all-original, and extremely danceable."

  • Angulo's band's version [of "Things to Come"] aims for what Dizzy and Co. were doing a half century ago, which is make smart dance music that moves the mind and behind.

    Christopher DeLaurenti, The Stranger
  • Her performance reveals depth in both jazz and Latin idioms, allowing her to make a strong statement.
