I am a woman of the south. I was born in Chile and since childhood my mind has been inhabited by melodies, rhythms and harmonies.
All my life I have really enjoyed the work of artists such as Elis Regina, Nelson Ayres, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Ivan Lins, Chabuca Granda, Astor Piazzolla, Violeta Parra, Milton Nascimento, João Gilberto, Nana Vasconcellos, Egberto Gismonti, Gilberto Gil, Sarah Vaughn, Billy Holiday, Sheila Jordan, Rachelle Ferrell the list is long.
So I became myself a singer and guitar player.
My latest composition have been inspired by a book of poems Penumbras (twilights) written by my grandfather the chilean poet Narciso Tondreau. In this new project I sing my own compositions accompanied by the superb musicians and friends of Alondra my band and with our guest Michèle Millner, with whom we recorded our second record Yaravi.
Today I can say that I love music more than ever. My life without music wouldn't have any swing. And so I follow my path... singing,,, like the cicada.
There is still something about me that I must tell you, I love cats very much. The red cat you can see in the upper background is Mioro and the other one is Isolina his sister. She was born in my place this summer and also the other one but four years ago.

Welcome to the Jazz Network, You are among some amazingly talented musicians here, and I'm looking forward to hearing some of your unique artistry in the near future.
Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
Let's be audacious, my friends!
