Jackie Zamora has become one of the most popular singers and entertainers in the American Southwest. She began studying music at the age of 13 with her mother Estela in her native home of Lima, Perú. After relocating to New Mexico, Jackie sang with the Western New Mexico University and University of New Mexico choral ensembles but soon took a detour from choral performance to explore her love for Latin music. She currently sings for the New Mexico Latin Jazz orchestra, leads her own ensemble and sings with the most seasoned salsa bands in the Southwest and Midwest regions.
