Arjo started her management company LaLaLa over a decade ago. Founded on 15 years work as an artist, music teacher and assistant- tax-adviser for artists, LaLaLa delivers a strong business and creative network, knowledge and experience, behind a clear vision set case-by-case with each artist. Arjo graduated on Electric Guitar from the Conservatory Rotterdam. Music and music creators are what it’s all about for Mrs LaLaLa. She is currently working with one of Europe’s finest pop/rock bands, the critically acclaimed De Staat, and helps frontman Torre Florim develop his multi-aspect career.

LaLaLa Management = the 3rd La-company after La Kidda (Arjo as solo artist) and Labelized (indie label).
