THIS IS ME
She is a bandoneonist, pianist, composer and musicologist from Argentina.
With her passionate and deep personality, Mercedes transmits with her performances a style full of emotion and tradition. She is deeply involved with the bandoneon literature and poetics. She has been researching bandoneon stylistic techniques in tango history.
Tango is for her not just a simple local genre. Tango, though it was born in the Río de la Plata, is universal and contains elements from such diversity of styles. Therefore, tango is a medium capable to express feelings from anyone. Through tango, Mercedes interprets other musical genres, such as folk music from Latin America and even classical music. Tango is for her a way to understand music.
Mercedes has performed as a solo bandoneonist, playing repertoire written specially for bandoneon as well as her own arrangements and compositions. She has also performed in numerous ensembles and orchestras.
