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 made him questions,
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”.
Sharing stage with jazz musicians there, waked her passion towards this genre, which she later dived into, when living in Basle, Switzerland, visiting the Jazz Campus for two years, learning Advanced Jazz Theory and being part of an Ensemble, while also learning scatting on Jazz Standards online, what she still does.
Currently living in Munich, Germany.

Apart from learning with her guitar professor at home since she was three, at age of 19, Inés quitted Architecture and started her guitar, music -and later singing- studies at the Conservatory, in Buenos Aires.
Music was no longer a hobby, but main thing in her life.
After having done the first seven years of Conservatory and without yet closing studies, Inés gets married and moves to Germany, where she gets ready to enter the Musikhochschule Köln, learning Harmony, Counterpoint, Audioperception and Guitar in the Musikschule Leverkusen.
There, she also takes private singing lessons with Edith Kertèsz, in Bonn, working on Coloratura.
When she approves the guitar and general music education exam, the condition was to stay in Germany for four years, to complete the studies, what she could not promise. She would only stay there for two more years and then move back to Argentina.
So, she continued learning Harmony and Counterpoint in the Musikschule Leverkusen and had her first son.
Back in Argentina, she resumed
her studies at the Conservatory and
could again not finish them.
She lost a baby, needed recovery,
and then had a premature baby girl,
who now sings, as well.
From Argentina... to Paraguay.
There Inés wanted to finally finish her studies. Even though she had already studied all the subjects contained in the program (between Argentina and Germany), she would have had to sit for four years and repeat them,
to get her title.
That would have felt like
so she decided to record a CD.
That would be "her certificate".
Meanwhile, while writing the songs, she took singing lessons in Diapason, School of Music, and applied Orff Method at the same place, with children between three and eight years old.
Directed a choir for "Proyecto Flores" and had her third and fourth child.
Inés recorded two CDs while living in Uruguay, where she continued taking singing lessons, now more oriented to pop music, with Maripaz de Melero.
She began performing on stage during her late thirtiess & forties,
and lived there ten years long.
The wind now blowed towards Africa, and she had to live in Nairobi for five years, where she learnt Belt singing with Wamuni Njoroge and continued singing on stage.
That was an amazing and intense experience. Inés adapted the repertoire to an audience that would not speak much Spanish, but had a great sensitivity and could very well understand
the message in music.
You don´t "play" an instrument in Kenia. You "dance" it (Swahili).
And people loved Piazzolla!
So she got inspiration to do more of his repertoire, having the African body spontaneous reaction to music in mind.
Still working on it.
Moved to Basle then, where she lived for two years and visited the JazzCampus for lessons and ensemble (see Bio).
There, her fourth child finished school and she was ready to prepare a tour, but Corona had other plans, and so much energy that was "ready to give it all", got somewhat stopped...
So back to teaching, and currently studying at the same time online, to become a Certified CVT Vocal Coach
by CVI Denmark,
the new influences are showing in her approach to "old" (and new) repertoire, refreshing it and
giving it "a twist".
