We lost a lovely voice this year. Often known by one word complete "Lasha" was born in 1972 and passed away to breast cancer on New Year's Day 2010. Her home was wherever she could sing — from San Francisco where she started to sing at age 13, and later a permanent move to Montreal at age 19. Over a twelve year period she released three startling albums and toured and performed with various adventurous venues. Child of a Mexican father and Lebanese-American mother, she enriched her music with this background, often adding Klezmer, gypsy music and folk tales.
