Born in Montevido, Uruguay, Inés Cánepa moved to Montreal in 1993, where she joined world music acts Trio Isa and Clave de Sur. In 1998, she assembled a show offering "a musical voyage throughout Latin America," which was performed more than 200 times in venues across Quebec. Since 2006, Cánepa has been the lead and back-up singer for the Robert Lopez Project
, a group that combines diverse world rhythms and sounds. In 2007, she returned to Montevido to record her inspired debut, CAPRICHO
. The album recently earned her a nomination for Artist of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards.
