The Laralba was born in 2010 in the Maggia Valley in the south part of Switzerland.
The initial trio evolved into the current quartet composed of 4 very experienced musicians. They regularly perform in venues and events in Switzerland and Italy, receiving the sympathy of the public thanks to the energy of the band that focuses on Lara's voice and violin.
The group offers traditional Irish, Celtic and original songs always with respect for the style. The repertoire is completed with reinterpretations of famous folk-pop-rock songs that have left a mark in more across specialgenerations. The arrangements are designed in an electro-acoustic and modern key with an eye for tradition.
In 2017 comes the first album "Laralba" (available here) which contains traditional Irish songs, some covers and an original song sung in Italian.
In September 2018 the band took part at the prestigious "Irish Openair Toggenburg", performing in two concerts in front of thousands of enthusiastic spectators.
The 13th August 2019 during the Locarno Film Festival, they officially presented the new EP of the second album. This event was powered by Irish Openair Toggenburg.
