The soprano Yalilé Cardona comes from Bogota in Colombia and performed with various early music ensembles, chamber music, and renowned orchestras.

She sang at the famous festival “Opera in the Park” and “Musica religiosa de Popayán”. A scholarship enabled her to study at the Royal College of Music in London where she was awarded the “Century Fund Prize” as the best interpreter of early music.

In Austria, she is a recognized music educator and performs as a soloist with various ensembles of early music.
