he has been close to tango since an early age supported by a family of musicians. Her father played bandoneon in a tango orchestra, her mother played piano and her maternal grandfather played violin and was a tenor singer at the Teatro Argentino of La Plata.

She always recalls when she used to be seated on her father’s lap watching Grandes Valores Del Tango on television. So strong is her love for our music that she still keeps the notebook in which she wrote the lyrics of the tangos she used to listen to and sing when she was a child.

Her voice is a very special one. Her range of mezzosoprano and alto allows her to dive into a varied repertory of classical and contemporary numbers, easily switching from bass to treble notes.

She began to work at venues in July 2005 alongside outstanding musicians and helped by the experience she acquired at the Conservatorio Provincial Gilardo Gilardi where she studied singing and guitar playing. Later she appeared at different venues of La Plata, Capital Federal and the interior of the country. Her first disc Tango con perfume de mujer was declared an item of municipal interest by the Concejo Deliberante of La Plata.

She was finalist at the talent contest for singers Primer Certamen de Cantores y Cancionistas Carlos José Pérez de la Riestra and was awarded a special mention in the category Milonga with the number “Milonga sentimental”.

In October 2006 she was awarded the Premio Cóndor de Fuego like Antonio Tarragó Ros and Yamila Cafrune were and was nominated for the Premios Gardel 2007 as female tango singer along with Adriana Varela and Julia Zenko, among other artists.

In 2007, accompanied by renowned musicians, she started her new show Con perfume a tango with a new repertoire that also includes the very popular “Tinta roja”, “Pasional” and “Garganta con arena”.
