Since 2012 she began writing her own compositions and developing a one-woman-ensemble project where she combines bass blokflute models, voice, looping and sound manipulation. She's currently working towards rendering this project into an album.
Notable collaborations include organist Gyula Szilagi, with whom she founded "Tons Parlantes", an ensemble devoted to the performance of 16th and 17th century, and koto player Naoko Kikuchi, with whom she performed at Guimarães 2012 - European Capital of Culture and Gentse Festival/Ka-Bal (2011).
She has performed in venues such as Vredenburg (Utrecht), Centro Cultural de Belém (Lisboa), Culturgest (Lisboa), Muziekgebouw aan t'IJ (Amsterdam) and in festivals such as the "Van Wassenaer Festival" (Amsterdam) and "Encontros de Música Antiga de Loulé" (Loulé).
Since 2008 she's the artistic director of the concert series "Clássica em Cacela", held every summer in the picturesque village of Cacela Velha, in the Algarve.
She took music lessons since the age of 4, learning the piano, blokflute (recorder) and ballet. In 2001 she graduated in Sports Sciences at Faculdade de Motricidade Humana da Universidade Técnica de Lisboa and in Music at Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa, after which she moved to The Netherlands where she studied the blokflute at Utrechts Conservatorium and later at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. During her music studies she focused on both early and contemporary music as well as on the improvisatory practices of both periods.
