Eva holds a BFA in Fine Arts and a BA in Culture & Media Studies from Parsons the New School for Design. She has exhibited artwork and screened her short films in galleries and festivals in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Miami, and Dominican Republic.  She has also produced, directed and coordinated several public events and international art festivals in South Florida.

  • Live Music / Mestizas

    About Mestizas:

    Mestizas is a musical group that combines styles such as flamenco, jazz and various genres of Latin American and Caribbean folklore.
    From a contemporary perspective, they revisit forgotten —but fundamental— songs from the cultures that forged their intertwined identities along with their own compositions. From Spain to Uruguay, and from La Havana to Boston, their music is the vehicle that transports the cultural richness of each of its 5 members. With exquisite musicality, the quintet that was born at Berklee College of Music stands out for its quality, originality, aesthetic and social awareness. In a Mestizas’ show, each song is a story and each story is an invitation to travel to the center of our traditions to renew, rediscover, and admire them.
    Mestizas members are Esperanza Delgado on lead vocals (Córdoba, Spain), Estefanía Núñez-Villamandos on piano and backing vocals (La Havana, Cuba), Ale Gómez on trumpet, percussion and backing vocals (Montevideo, Uruguay), Patricia Ligia on bass and backing vocals (Montevideo, Uruguay) and Paloma Gómez on flute, percussion and backing vocals (Sevilla, Spain).
