Patricia Caicedo & Eugenia Gassull

Recognized as “The Voice of the Latin-American and Spanish Art Song” and often described as its ambassador, Colombian-Spanish soprano and musicologist Patricia Caicedo positioned herself as a leading interpreter of the Latin American and Spanish lieder repertory and has sung in the United States, Canada, Denmark, Russia, Holland, Italy, Spain, Puerto Rico and Latin-America to public and critical acclaim.

Singing in Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese, Quechua and Nahuatl she draws listeners into the world of beauty, poetry, and warmth that is the Latin-American Art Song – a world that continues to thrive because of her determination to ensure its future.

Caicedo’s distinguished career includes concerts with symphony orchestras and recitals in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Latin America where she is hailed by audiences and critics alike. As one reviewer noted, "Reflecting her deep emotional connection to the music, she interprets the repertory with extraordinary sensitivity and sweetness.”

She has recorded four CDs dedicated to the Latin American Art Song available for purchase on this website.

As a musicologist and teacher Caicedo is internationally recognized as the leading expert in the study and performance of the Latin American Art Song, a tradition she has almost single-handedly rescued from extinction. Her pioneering books The Latin American Art Song: A Critical Anthology and Interpretive Guide for Singers and The Colombian Art Song - Jaime León: Analysis and Compilation of his works for voice & piano Vol.1 & 2. are consider reference books in the field.

She is the founder and artistic director of the Barcelona Festival of Song, a Summer Program and concert series focused on the study of the history and interpretation of the Latin American & Spanish Art Song repertoire, now reaching its 7th edition.

With her talent, knowledge, and determination to preserve an important part of the world’s musical heritage, Patricia Caicedo is indeed The Voice of the Latin American & Spanish Art Song.
