Aitzi moved to London in 2018 to study Jazz voice at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. With a wide breadth of musical experience both in England and across Europe, her influences cross continents and genres. Ella Fitzgerald and Norma Winstone have had a large impact on her musicianship but what truly sets her apart is her deep connection with her Latin-American roots and her unique exploration of vocal improvisation.
Aitzi is no stranger to the music industry, bursting onto the scene in 2014 singing and cowriting an award-winning single in Germany. This propelled her into a rich musical life, touring at a young age in Italy, France, Russia and Germany. Since her arrival in London, Aitzi has worked hard on her craft as an improvising vocalist, studying under Brigitte Beraha, Clare Wheeler, Nikki Iles, and Tina May. Alongside her work as a solo performer, she has been heavily involved in many vocal ensembles; notably, she was a founding member of the award-winning A-Capella group "The Conchords" and has recently joined leading jazz vocal ensemble "The London Vocal Project" under Pete Churchill, resulting in collaborations with Norma Winstone, Dave Holland and the Printmakers.
Since moving to London, Aitzi has been performing at venues in and around the city such as: The Vortex Jazz Club, Pizza Express Live Soho, Piano Smithfield, Ronnie Scotts and the Barbican. Most recently, she has been an integral part of the Milena Granci Sextet, a thrilling project that showcases Granci’s original music and Aitzi’s passion for wordless singing.
In 2022, Aitzi was honoured with the Gutenberg Jazz Collective, an excellence program that selects young and talented musicians from around the world to form a band and learn from jazz masters. There she had the opportunity to work with Kris Davis, Ben Street, Billy Hart, Becca Stevens and Ingrid Jensen as part of their mentorship program.
