A multifaceted artist, Colombian-Spanish soprano, musicologist and physician Patricia Caicedo is recognized as The Voice of the Latin American and Iberian Art Song and is often described as its ambassador. She has sung at important venues in the United States, Canada, Denmark, Holland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Russia, Germany, Puerto Rico and Latin-America.
Patricia is a true artist-scholar who combines research and performance, enriching each other.

She regularly gives concerts, lectures, master classes and serves as an artist in residency at leading universities in the United States. Her pioneering books are considered a reference in the field.

The BFOS is positioned as the reference place for the study, creation, research and performance of the Iberian and Latin American art song repertoire in Spanish, Catalan, and Portuguese.
Her interest in exploring the possibilities of technology to transfer knowledge to society brought her to create Mundo Arts, an Internet company that developed into a Music Publisher, a Record label, an Online TV channel and an Online Store. In 2014 Patricia started EYECatalunya, an interdisciplinary platform dedicated to promoting Catalan creators internationally.
