he began her music studies at the Conservatorio Alberto Williams, where she was trained as classical pianist. Later she decided to research other musical languages. At the Escuela de Música Popular de Avellaneda she discovered her love for Tango.

She formed a tango female duo: Tangachas with the singer Clori Gatti and she had the role of pianist and arranger. Thereafter she put together another duo with the female singer Dolores Solá. With the latter she carried out numerous appearances, including a tour of Europe.

Later, a third duo called Muñecas Bravas, with the singer Laura Casarino, with whom she appeared on a compact disc titled La joven guardia del Tango by the Melopea label. They also made two video clips for the Sólo Tango channel.

Nowadays Claudia is working as soloist singer and especially as composer.

At present she has just released her second disc with some tangos written by her, on which she is backed by Los Cosos de al Lao and the Javier Cardenal Domínguez trio.
