Whether playing solo (to trax), or as accompaniment to some of Vancouver’s hippest DJs, Karla provides a cool, contemporary vibe to the musical atmosphere, be it Pop, Electronic House, or Smooth Jazz.

In a duo format, for example, with DJ Moto, you’ll hear everything from Beastie Boys and Jay Z to Nirvana and Lenny Karvits, mixing Hip Hop, House, Rock, and Pop, with the cool, live accompaniment of Karla’s sensational sax!

The perfect accent for private parties or corporate events, her exquisite sound captures the subtleties of a voice, and adds that special kind of ‘icing on the cake’ for any event!

Currently, Karla is taking the music world by storm by jazzing up new restaurants, clubs, galas and events with her solo/ tracks act and alongside world renowned DJ’s.
