I am Mercedes Bravo. Professional Pianist

I use music, art and literature to tell stories, spread ideas, sow changes.

Stay Connected

International pianist

From the moment I have memory there has always been a tingling inside my head that has prompted me to wonder and learn new things, to try to deeply understand what is around but, over all, to connect all these parcels of knowledge within my reach.

Apart from piano, my most enriching schools along these years have been, in one hand, travelling:

The nature, being in open air, reaching new places away from the routine and on my own foot, if posible, make my soul wider; but what truely open the mind is the fact of finding oneself in different contexts and trying to understand them, talking to different people that come from far places and sometimes also from far times, following other traditions…

In the other hand, my love for the literature, especially the poetry, the magic realism and the philosophy. They show the very thin line that sometimes separates the racional, the physical and the spiritual fields.
