Gabriela was born in Córdoba, Argentina but spent much of her childhood in Virginia, United States, where she had her first contact with jazz music. Once she returned to Argentina, she began singing in rock bands at the age of 15, and also performed in musicals.
In 2009, she began singing jazz in clubs and her deep voice coupled with her expressive capacity on stage, led her to perform at the Córdoba International Jazz Festival from 2011 to 2016. In 2013, she also toured the Dominican Republic, where she shared the stage with Grammy award-winning artists. In 2015, she released her first album, Senses, recorded with a group of some of the best jazz musicians in the country, and in 2016, she was invited by the prestigious traditional jazz band Small Jazz Band to sing with them in Córdoba.
Today, Gabriela performs with different groups in different cities around the country, in addition to working on film projects as an actress. She is also exploring new music and writing for a new music project.
