Coro Entredós / Coro Malvaloca

The Entredós Women’s Choir of Madrid was born in 2005 at the Entredós Foundation, with a very feminist and very political ideology. In 2017 it changed its name and left the foundation, becoming Coro Malvaloca and moving towards ecofeminism. It was founded and conducted by Catalina Rivada and since 2015 it has been conducted by Guayarmina Calvo.

I belonged to this choir from 2007 to 2017. During those years I sang as an alto, played the piano, worked as an arranger and sometimes co-conductor. I made many arrangements and one piece. I still write arrangements for them today.


The piece was Retórtolis (2009), written during my artistic grant at Casa de Velázquez (Accademy of France in Madrid) and premiered at the French Institute, dressed like pigeons and with hard bread onstage:
