Maria Romero

Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Born: February 22    

Maria Romero

Maria Romero was born in Granada Southern Spain. Since childhood she has been profoundly interested in music, perhaps influenced by her mother, a classical piano teacher at the provincial faculty. Over many years she participated as a soloist in 'La Presentacion' under the magnificent direction of Dame Elena Peinado, the choir performing throughout much of Europe.

As a student, Romero studied classical vocals and saxophone, but her real calling was toward vocal improvisation, and in particular black music. Over the years this natural tendency has come to define her unique style. At 18 she was selected to perform vocals for 'The Granada Big Band' and it is from here she focused more intensely on the versatility of Jazz and the use of the voice as an instrument.
