Catch the full interview with Troy Laureta on VegasVibes Junction, hosted by Esmeralda Padilla-Gould, to dive deeper into his musical journey and the upcoming “Harana: An East Meets West Live Experience.”

From the very start of the interview, Troy Laureta’s brilliance and humility shone through as he shared his remarkable journey. Born and raised in Hawaii, Troy’s musical roots run deep, nurtured by his Filipino family’s love for music. “I grew up in a very musical family,” Troy recounted. “My sister and I sang all over Waikiki, performing at parties, debuts, and even funerals.”

After moving to Los Angeles, Troy’s path in the music industry was paved with determination and passion. “My journey began with small auditions that accumulated over the years,” he said. It was his collaboration with the legendary David Foster that became a pivotal moment in his career. “Working with David Foster opened many doors for me. He introduced me to artists like Andrea Bocelli and Seal,” Troy shared, reflecting on the significant impact of this mentorship.

Esmeralda was keen to know what ignited Troy’s passion for music. “It started when I was six and discovered the piano,” he revealed. “I fell in love with the instrument, and music became our way of life.” This early love for music was nurtured by his family, with his mom as their “stage mom” and his dad a musician.

Troy’s impressive portfolio includes working as the musical director for Ariana Grande, a role he cherishes. “Working with Ariana Grande at the Grammys was a dream come true,” he said, highlighting one of the many memorable experiences in his career.

We also got to chat with Peter Ferguson, the producer of Harana, who shared his insights and excitement about this groundbreaking event. Together with Troy Laureta, who is both the co-producer and musical director of Harana, they have crafted a concert experience that promises to be a night of unparalleled musical brilliance.

Esmeralda asked about the importance of showcasing diverse cultures on an international stage. “It’s very important. Growing up, there was little representation for Filipino musicians, which made it challenging,” Troy said. He hopes this concert will inspire young Filipino creatives to see the possibilities in the industry.

Troy’s passion and perseverance have driven him to overcome numerous challenges. “I love my craft and want to succeed to make a difference in the industry,” he stated. His dreams extend beyond personal success; he aspires to leave a lasting legacy in the world of music. “I’d love to win a Grammy with OPM (Original Pilipino Music.) I want to make a lasting impact on Filipino music and leave a legacy that my family and fellow Filipinos can be proud of.”

The most rewarding aspect of putting together Harana? “Bringing people together and celebrating different cultures and music genres,” Troy said with a smile. “It’s rewarding to see the gravity of what we’re trying to achieve with Harana.”

Throughout the interview, Troy Laureta’s humility, dedication, and brilliance were evident. His journey is a testament to the power of passion and perseverance, and his work continues to inspire and uplift audiences worldwide.
