Latin Soul, Good Vibes & Mucho Amor

With coastal Uruguayan and Italian family roots, it’s no wonder singer/songwriter Gaby Aparicio feels most comfortable near the water and most inspired when blending numerous cultural sounds together. Honing her laid-back, sunny style in Orlando, FL, Aparicio headed to San Diego, CA in 2014. Since then, she has become a fixture in the live music scene, performing her signature fusion of Latin, world, pop, reggae, and soul with various configurations of her band, La Buena Onda, at iconic local venues and festivals such as Music Box, Adams Ave. Unplugged, and Chicano Park Day. Other notable performances include singing the national anthem for the NBA’s Orlando Magic, showcases at Gibson and Sony Music Studios in New York City, and opening for Latin Grammy winners Monsieur Perine. Though no stranger to impressive accolades (she is a two-time winner of Cari Cole’s Signature Songwriting Circle Contest and 2018 winner of the West Coast International Song Contest), Aparacio’s creative mission is quite modest: she hopes to inspire others by spreading positive vibrations and love. Look for new La Buena Onda music this summer – a new Latin/soul album, recorded by Grammy© winning producer, Alan Sanderson, of Pacific Beat Recording, is due July 2019.
