Performing in festivals such as La Fiesta de las Bulerias and Las Fiestas de la Vendimia in Jerez de la Frontera, she has shared the stage with Agujetas, El Grilo, La Macanita and others. A featured artist at last year’s Festival de Jerez, her solo CD De Sevilla a Jerez was released 2008 in Madrid.
