1. What has been your most magical moment singing – until now?
I am happy I was asked what was the most magical moment singing until now. It made me realize that there are so many incredible moments the last years that it is almost impossible to choose.
It must mean I’m doing what I want to do.

I could mention this one piece that Manuel Sánchez, a good friend, and composer from Cádiz, wrote for me. I was supposed to sing a solo on a heavy almost shouting voice as the climax of the composition.
I was a mixture of scared and shy about this solo, but when the moment came I felt a certain strength I had never sung with before. My friend had wet eyes when she came to greet me afterward.

2. What will you bring into CHOREOS?
First of all, I will bring loads of curiosity, I cannot wait to meet all the other singers, organizers, directors and be part of the concept they are developing. I hope I will bring to Choreos something interesting from my background: I am mainly an instrumentalist, a recorder player,
but I have always been interested in movement starting from ballet.
I have a personal interest in exploring the correlation between movement and sound, I will bring that with me as well.
