Born in 1998 in Garrison, New York, Sara L'Abriola started playing guitar at age eight. While originally immersed in classical guitar training and technique, she discovered a love for Django Reinhardt's music at age thirteen and has pursued the style ever since. Under the instruction of renown guitarist, Stephane Wrembel, she began transcribing Django Reinhardt's solos and developing the technique.
After finishing high school, Sara moved to New York City and began playing Reinhardt's style of music full-time. At eighteen years old, she made her Carnegie Hall debut, joining the stage with Stephane Wrembel, Stochelo Rosenberg, and Al Di Meola as part of the Django A Gogo festival.
She has also studied Indian classical music under the late sitar maestro, Roop Verma.
Sara currently resides in New York, New York where she frequently plays at local establishments.
