Inés started playing the guitar when she was three, while the guitar professor waited for
her father, who was delayed with patients, to take his lesson. She started talking to him,
wondering about this fascinating instrument, and ended up learning with him, in a casual
way. Actually, he was a Voice teacher who played and taught guitar, as well.
Her passion was to sing, even though she was too shy to sing out loud. She liked the
harmony between voices, the timbres, and enjoyed this “natural mutual understanding”
among people who made music. She also had the need of sharing this with an audience and
Inés started writing songs when she lived in Paraguay, in the fifteen minutes in between
each activity of being a mother of four. She also gave guitar lessons, there, and practiced the
Orff Method in her music lessons with children. There she gained the confidence to write
and to compose. Even though she had studied to become a musician in Buenos Aires and
Germany, this teaching experience was like the “opening key” to composing.
It was in Montevideo, Uruguay, where she lived ten years long, that these songs found
music and musicians, and came out on stage, to be shared, her two albums “materialized”,
and new songs found their inspiration.
Living in Nairobi, she slowly got in touch with new audience and new musicians, and was
very happy to feel being “at the right place, at the right time”, thanking from heart the ones
that were receiving her, and the ones who had “made the road” before, and helped her
grow, slowly, in an artisanal way.
She lived in Basel, Switzerland, for the last two years. There she will be performing at the
June event of Stiftung Hofmatt. Currently living in München, Germany.
