Mendez grew up in a clan of gypsy artists from Jerez. She began singing under the influence of her aunt, singer La Paquera de Jerez. Her professional career began when she joined Manuel Morao’s company.

Performing in festivals such as La Fiesta de las Bulerias and Las Fiestas de la Vendimia in Jerez de la Frontera, she has shared the stage with Agujetas, El Grilo, La Macanita and others.

A featured artist at last year’s Festival de Jerez, her solo CD, “De Sevilla a Jerez” was released in 2008 in Madrid.

Performing with her will be Gopal Slavonic on flamenco guitar, John Martin on percussion and Sarah McKenney, dancing.
