Jackie Zamora was born and raised in Lima, Perú. She began studying with her mother, a former dancer/choreographer and Zarzuela singer, at the age of 13. Upon arrival in the United States at age 15, she continued to study choral ensemble singing and was a member of the Western New Mexico Chamber singers and the University of New Mexico Concert Choir. Inspired by her Latin roots, she joined the salsa band Casablanca and began to explore salsa, Latin jazz and bossa nova idioms. Her 2002 recording with Casablanca, entitled Peregrinos, received the best tropical/salsa song of the year award and the female vocalist of the year award from the New Mexico Hispano Entertainers Association.

In 2007 she was part of the cast of the first Zarzuela in Albuquerque by Teatro Nuevo Mexico, titled “Luisa Fernanda,” and then again in 2007, she was cast in “La Corte de Faraón.” Jackie has also played with the salsa band Encanto and the Afro-Peruvian band Concepto Tambor. Jackie is currently the lead vocalist for Calle 66 and Baracutanga.
