DescriptionGina Estrada has been singing since the age of 6. Possessing a unique and identifiable voice, Gina enrolled in the Jazz School in ST Gallen, prior to that she had vocal operetta lessons .It wasn't long before the time would come for stage appearances.
And it did.. during her free time Gina wrote lyrics and jammed with bands where she would spend hours looking for the right instrumentals to fit her voice and style.-
-She was asked by Mokka, a Swiss Trip Hop Band to be the front-lady and the past 9 years has taken her from stage to stage. Performing live with them. It was with them that Gina begun combining electronics with her vocals, experimenting and discovering new terrains.-
It wasn't long before she hooked up with Merge Of -Equals and some brilliant work was done. Jazz, Soul and Downtempo was the vibe Gina was getting into..Not only that, she was also developing a liking for Techno and House.
It was -time to move to unexplored pastures .
15 years after her first band and that first experience, Gina Estrada presents a unique EP on Funkhausmusic .
