María Chemes started her art career, both in singing and in writing at a very young age.

 

She has more than 25 years of experience in singing, from which her teaching method “Meeting with the voice” (in Spanish, “Encuentro con la voz”) stems. This method is part of a seminar she runs in Argentina and Italy.

 

Under Lucía Maranca's guidance, she studied popular music from 1985 to 1995. Her popular repertoire first included old Spanish and Sephardic songs and later on added bolero and tango songs.

 

After working with Werner Schroeter in Hamburg’s Schauspielhaus in 1995, she took her first steps in opera singing. It was then when she discovered her lyric soprano voice. She studied with Horacio Amauri between 1997 and 2000, with María Rosa Farré between 2001 and 2006, and with Graciela de Gyldenfeldt between 2010 and 2013.

 

Her primary focus is on studying, developing her voice and singing in concerts held in different places around Buenos Aires. She is currently creating a new show that blends popular and opera music. She is going back to bolero and tango songs, which have been mastered thanks to all the time dedicated to the lyrical repertoire with the pianist Leandro Chiappe.

 

These are some of the most important people in her artistic background and career:

  • Lito Valle, with whom she performed several times between 1994 and 1997;

  • Rozita Zozulia, with whom she studied lyrical singing and performed several times between 2000 and 2015;

  • Norman Briski, whose seminars she attended in Caliban;

  • Augusto Fernández, in the “Puerta” seminar;

  • Daniel Suárez Marzal, whose direction and playwriting seminars she attended; and

  • Werner Schreter, with whom she studied and worked sporadically between 1985 and 1995.

 

Regarding writing, she started in poetry at a very young age, thanks to the several letters she exchanged with writers and teachers such as Leónidas Lamborghini.

 

Her first book, “A rodar/la niña” (in English, “Let's roll/The girl”), was published in 1987, which would be the first of her three poetry books. The second, “Los lejanos amantísimos” (in English, “The far lovers”), was published in 1993. These two books were published by José Luis Mangieri within the collection “Todos bailan” (in English, “Everybody dances”), for the publishing house Editorial Tierra Firme. Her third poetry book, “Brazos de ningún vacío” (in English, “Arms of no empty space”), was edited by Editorial Paradiso in 2012.

 

“Zapiola es una calle eterna” (in English, “Zapiola is an eternal street), her first prose book, was published by Ediciones Lamás Médula in 2016. This book won an award for best foreign poetry in the “Premio Michelangelo Buonarotti”, in Saravezza, Italy.

 

María has taken some steps into poetry and acting with her own material by performing in “La Alianza Francesa” and “Después del cuento”, which was directed by Cristina Moreira at the Foro Gandhi. In 2016, she directed “Eterna resonancia” (in English, “Eternal resonance”) based on William Shakespeare’s texts, together with piano music by Erik Satie.
