singing and guitar from the age of 11, and was introduced to Canarian
traditional music. Later on she was a co-founder of the Tabona folk
group.  After a few years she extended her repertoire to include island
pop sounds, and sang in concerts, musicals, etc. Recently she made a radical

swing, modern jazz and more.  She will be on stage with Miguel Ángel

an  impressive creative and experimental spirit through their melodies and
rhythms.
