erónica Marchetti was born and lives in Rosario, province of Santa Fe.

Since then her studies have been focused on acting, guitar playing and singing, promising a brilliant future as singer.

After being encouraged by her family to start a show business career, Verónica faced her training with an authentic enthusiasm. Today she goes on with her specialization in singing and music affording it with the money she gets in her busy schedule as singer. An exemplary attitude of talent and devotion.

Meanwhile, she was harvesting acclaim and awards at the contests she has appeared: She was awarded the first prize at the 1º Festival Interprovincial de Tangos (Firmat, July 2003); she received a recognition by the Academia del Tango of Rosario and by the Asociación Gardeliana of Rosario as a permanent broadcaster of the Argentine popular music (Rosario, November 2004); she was nominated and was among the three candidates chosen for the prizes MUSI 2005 and 2006 of Rosario, for her career as singer (the Rosario Musicians Union and Fundación MusiMedios); honored with a Special Mention at the Certamen Pre-Baradero 2006; winner of the Festival Pre La Falda Tango 2006 (first sub-venue: Esperanza, Santa Fe, June 2006); winner as female vocal soloist at the 36º Certamen de Nuevos Valores of Cosquín (36th Talent Contest of New Revelations)(January 2007).

She has appeared at outstanding venues like La Casa del Tango or the Teatro Broadway, both in Rosario. She also appeared at important events such as the Festival Nacional del Tango de La Falda or Monumental Tango, both during 2006. Throughout 2007 she will appear as guest artist with the Orquesta Municipal de Tango de Rosario, conducted by Javier Martínez Lo Re.

She has published two recordings through independent labels: Con el tango en el alma (2003) and Entre sombras y recuerdos (2005), both under the musical direction of Raúl Salani. Her last disc was Retratos del alma (2010) including 11 tangos, with the musical direction by the pianist Diego Saavedra, featuring the Cuarteto de Cuerdas of the Teatro Argentino de La Plata, the bandoneonists Federico Pereyro and Matías Rubino and the guitarist Horacio Avilano.

Verónica is a true artist: each number she sings reveals an authentic interpretation. Owner of an extraordinary stage ductility plus a privileged voice, her positive energy and her feeling are immediately transmitted to the audience who is caught in a pleasant thread of unrequited loves, blues, joys and many other human situations which form the main subject matter of the tango genre.

Her success at Cosquín is a recognition for her work and her talent but it also means a responsibility for her to continue improving and enriching her artistic palette as singer and instrumentalist. A challenge that Verónica, with her customary good temper and humility, accepts with pleasure and with renewed strength.
