Of Uruguayan-American descent, her specialization in Italian and Spanish Baroque music has taken her all over the globe. She has recorded for Sony Classical, Dorian, Sono Luminus and Naxos and was featured on CBC radio as one of the leading interpreters of Spanish Renaissance and Sephardic song. This season she was named the Co-Artistic Director of the new concert series, GEMAS: Early Music of the Americas in New York City.
