I was born in Ubeda, Spain “The renaissance city” … I’ve loved rhythm, singing and dancing since I came into the world…. I’ve always made songs with everyday instruments and recreated the sounds they produced with my voice. At the same time I would  create choreographies to the rhythm of a wooden spoon drumming on a pot or pan… I come from family of artists, musicians, singers and dancers…

From a very young age I learned how to dance Flamenco and later on I studied Spanish Dance. Later life took me to Madrid to study sign language and interpretation where I joined the rhythm and percussion company Mayumana, playing percussion and singing … this experience helped me to go deeper into the world of BODY MUSIC. I gave it this name because I incorporate musicality that the voice gives us and rhythm that comes through our natural “drumsticks” the hands playing on the body … I had the honor of meeting Keith Terry, a great sage of body percussion who gave me a lot of freshness and rhythms that  connected me with a spiritual depth beyond the physical sensation in the body and tht experience provided me with a more holistic vision of BODY MUSIC
Living in Ibiza gave me the opportunity to develop my voice and, with the help of my guitar, I started writing my own songs and performing in public. Today I sing, dance, play and slap with a smile to remain that girl who pays attention to every sound of life. www.beluniverso.com
