Larisa began her relationship with music in 2015, as an afterwork passion. She started as a PR Specialist for the crowdfunding campaign of Zmeitrei. The Romanian band succeeded to raise more than 20K euros and to record an album with the Grammy – awarded producer Ian Brennan (Tinariwen).
She then quitted to work after work and became a PR freelancer, especially within the music industry.
In 2016 Larisa met Vlad Bodea, the founder of Vinyl, Rum, Tapas & Wine, an events platform that gathers a beautiful community of music lovers in Romania. They started an independent record label and booking agency under the same name. VRTW Artists are proud to raise and host in their family a variety of Romanian and International artists – from vinyl only to digital to live acts, unrestricted by any genre, but by the values they share.
Still an infant project in the label industry, Vinyl, Rum, Tapas & Wine manages to unite artists really passionate about music, and not only their music, but music in general, and what it does to people. They’ve had several releases in the past 2 years, and for 2019 they are preparing serious stuff.
Music speaks best … so, you can listen to their podcasts online, check out their releases on bandcamp, join their events and catch their weekly radio show at Radio Guerrilla (each Saturday, 14:00 – 16:00 RO time).
