I am a Swiss-Guatemalan singer/songwriter.

I started writing songs at age 16, which I got to perform in many important theatres and festivals in my native Guatemala. My music caught the attention of the two times Latin Grammy Award winner Gaby Moreno, who produced my first EP, Dos Profundidades.

After this success, I decided to come to Switzerland, my grandfather's country, to study music. Here, I studied a Bachelor in Creative Performance at the HEMU in Lausanne, followed by a Master in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy at the ZHdK in Zürich. Since then, I teach singing, guitar and songwriting, but my main focus is my musical project, which was selected by Pôle Suisse for the Proxima Project 2021-2022.

I am currently preparing the release of my new album Regresar.

For this album, I harvested words in the tropical forests of Guatemala and infused them in liquid melodies from the Alpine lakes. My music is drenched in magic realism and offers a goosebump-inducing blend of intimate and epic moments.
I hope this album offers a sanctuary to the nomadic souls who seek, like me, a place in which to take root.
