She is a highly sought-after guest artist performing around the world, having also arranged and published numerous pieces for guitar orchestra. She is president of the musical association ‘Guitar Artium’ and organizes the prestigious International Guitar Festival ‘Città dello Jonio’ in Taranto. With the ‘Daniel Fortea’ Library in Madrid, she is committed to rediscovering and promoting the Maestro’s repertoire throughout the world.
