Recognized as The Voice of the Latin American and Iberian Art Song and often described as its ambassador, Colombian-Spanish soprano and musicologist Patricia Caicedo has sung 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 has dedicated many years to research the Latin American and Iberian art song repertoire, bringing to light numerous composers and works who were previously hidden. Her interdisciplinary research seeks to contextualize the works and composers, studying them as a part of complex and entangled social networks.
She has recorded nine CDs dedicated to the art song repertoire in Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese and indigenous languages. Most of her recordings include works recorded for the first time or works composed for her to premiere. Two of her CDs are exclusively dedicated to the music of women composers.
Patricia has published eight books with scores that include a bilingual introductory study that contextualizes the works and composers and provide IPA transcriptions and poetry translations. These books are available at www.mundoarts.com
Her more recent book, The Latin American Art Song: Sounds of the Imagined Nations, was published by Lexington Press in 2019.
In 2005 she founded the Barcelona Festival of Song, a Summer Program & Concert Series focused on the study of the history and interpretation of the Latin American & Iberian vocal repertoire that is reaching its 16th edition in 2020.
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. She is the creator of EYECatalunya, an interdisciplinary platform dedicated to promoting Catalan creators internationally.
In 2017 Patricia was named an Honorary Member of the Brazilian Voice Teachers Association and their representative in Europe. She has served as a cultural ambassador for the Governments of Colombia and Spain. Since 2008 Patricia is included in the Who's Who in America, Who's Who in American Women and Who ´s Who in the World, a leading biographical reference publisher of the highest achievers from across the world.
Patricia regularly gives concerts, lectures, masterclasses and serves as an artist in residence at leading universities in the United States.
Patricia Caicedo lives in Barcelona and holds a Ph.D. in Musicology from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and a Medical Doctor´s degree from the Escuela Colombiana de Medicina.
