Musician and singer born in Bogotá, Colombia. Andrea started her musical studies at the age of seven with piano, voice, dance and musical theatre lessons at the Misi’s school. Andrea wrote her first song at the age of 10, with which she participated for the first time on a national singing competition winning 2nd place. During her high school years, she participated on different national singing contest bringing home a trophy e ... ach time.
In 2007, she got into the University El Bosque where she studied for 5 years, obtaining her degree in Music with an emphasis in singing. During these years, she had her first approach to jazz. Consequently, she fell in love with improvisation and all the possibilities that jazz had to offer. In 2012, after her graduation, she created and directed “Mandreina”, a quartet that explored jazz sonorities through the transformation of a Latin-American repertoire with Andrea's arrangements. Thanks to this experience, the search for her musical identity started.
En invierno del 2013 Andrea se traslada a Paris en busca de nuevas influencias musicales. Los primeros meses estudia francés en la Sorbona luego en 2014 logra ingresar en el Conservatorio para estudiar jazz vocal con la cantante Deborah Tanguy como maestra. En 2014 empieza a buscar un espacio en la escena musical parisina y logra participar en el festival de Jazz Sur Seine de Paris con el guitarrista francés Vladimir Medail; ese mismo año crea un dúo guitarra-voz con Iván Quintero, músico de jazz radicado en Paris, juntos empiezan a hacer musica con el jazz como hilo conector. Un año después, este dúo se transformó en “Akalia Klan”, un cuarteto de jazz latino-americano. Con este proyecto han llegado a reconocidos escenarios de la escena jazz de Paris como La cave du 38Riv, el teatro de la Vieille Grille y la casa de América latina entre otros.
Actualmente Andrea continua sus estudios de jazz en el conservatorio e ira de gira en el 2017 como la nueva miembro del grupo vocal de jazz "The voice Messengers" además está trabajando en las composiciones y arreglos para su primer disco con composiciones y arreglos propios. Este disco también busca exponer su propia sonoridad que la refleje como lo que quiere pensar que es: una cantante y compositora colombiana amante del jazz y apasionada de la poesía.
In 2013, she moved to Paris looking for different musical influences. She studied French Language and culture at La Sorbonne. In 2014, she was accepted into the Conservatory to study Vocal Jazz with Deborah Tanguy. In this same year, she got the opportunity to sing on the “Festival de Jazz Sur Seine” with French guitarist, Vladimir Medail. Later she created a duo with Ivan Quintero, Colombian guitarist living in Paris; together they gained recognition into the Parisian music scene. A year later, this duo became Akalia Klan, a Latin-American jazz quartet. This project gave them the chance to play in very well-known jazz scenarios in Paris like La cave du 38Riv’, La Vieille Grille’s theatre and La Maison de l’Amérique Latine.
At present, Andrea continues her vocal jazz studies at the Conservatory and will be on tour in as part of the JAzz vocal group "the voice Messengers"; at the same time, she is finishing the compositions and arrangements for her first record in which she wants to create her own sound by combining Colombian traditional music with all of the musical influences that she has attained among her studies. The result should be an album that reflects what she believes she is: a Colombian singer and composer who loves jazz and poetry.
