Mexican musician and lutenist. Her first encounter with the renessance vihuela is because of her classical guitar studies and the meeting with lutenists Isabelle Villey and Antonio Corona-Alcalde. Her passion for ancient plucked-string instruments took her to move to Italy in 2003 in order to deepen the studies. Under the guidance of Massimo Lonardi, her most important guide in renaissance and baroque repertoires, she attained the Italian equivalent of a Bachelor Degree at the Istituto Superiore di Studi Musicali “F. Vittadini” of Pavia, Italy, in 2009. Two other great musicians and teachers, Paul O’Dette and Hopkinson Smith, marked her journey in the musical world. Her first project of renaissance music is “El Delphín” (2004-2008). As a soloist she played in Italy and Mexico, where she was invited to record for the Mexican radiobradcasting Uniradio in the transmission “Pasacalle” (2008) and “Efecto Doppler” (2010). The year 2011 marks the beginning of two important projects, the ensemble “pour.quoy.non : renaissance music” awarded with the 2nd place in Forderpreis Alte Musik 2012 (Saarbrücken, Germany) and the collaboration and creation of the musical project FILMINCASA with the Italian guitarist Danilo DiPrizio directed to new creations for lute and acoustic guitar .

She completed in 2013 the MA in Medieval / Renaissance Musik at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, Swiss, under the guidance of Crawford Young, Ken Zuckerman and Dominique Vellard and Madjid Khaladj (Persian percussions).

She’s been awarded the scholarship that the Mexican Institution FONCA (Fondo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes) created in order to support Mexican artists who study abroad.
