Although song has accompanied her throughout her life, Margarita Laso has toured the Ecuadorian stages for the last 30 years. In this time she has traveled all over Ecuador and has recorded more than 180 songs on 13 discs: pasillos, boleros, tangos, Christmas songs, lullabies, and especially the beloved national music. In her work with the Ecuadorian popular music, the Quito artist has combined the treasure of tradition with the work of contemporary composers, the genres of our heritage, with the creation and valuable songs of the national songbook. With 5 published poetry books, Margarita Laso is also the author of some songs and her poetry appears in international translations and anthologies.
Both her recitals and her records, (Apostemos que me caso, Más bueno que el pan, El canelazo, Corazoncito, Allá te esperaré), always accompanied by the talent of extraordinary musicians, have earned her a place in the heart of the Ecuadorian public and they have taken to present their songs, productions and assemblies beyond the Ecuadorian borders.
