An accomplished singer/songwriter, Afro Cuban dancer and actress, Melvis grew up next to the legendary theater Federico Garcia Lorca, in a vivid and eclectic neighborhood of La Habana, Cuba, surrounded by multi-cultural influences. She studied classical piano in the Manuel Saumell Music School since the age of 7 and also completed a music degree as Music teacher at the University of Arts (I.S.A.) in her hometown. Her music wavers between the intimate and urgent with a wide range of variety and timbre, while her smooth and soulful voice incorporates warm Blues inflections with elements of traditional Cuban sounds. As a result, she brings an original color to each song, delivering a rich palette of Latin sounds.
