She performed as the horn section leader of various Salsa Bands around the Northwest and developed the idea to write her own music soon after. In her early 20’s, Layla lived in Santiago de Compostela, Spain - where she began building her Latin Jazz career and performed her new music with Spanish and Cuban musicians . Upon her return to the US, ‘Live at the Triple Door’ CD was recorded. It was a live show with Layla directing her 13 piece orchestra and performing almost all original music. This CD was a huge jump in her career, with one of the songs “Que Te Vaya Bien (sin mi)” becoming a hit in South America as well as earning 2 Honorable Mentions awards in the International Songwriting Competition. The song, “La Rumbera” also received semi finalist in the ISC.
