General Information

Year of Birth:  1972
Place of Birth:  Mexico City, Mexico
Country of Birth: 
Nationality: 

 

Born in Mexico, Angélica Castellós fascination with the recorder began early. It quickly became clear that Castelló had no interest in limiting her musical development to any single style. She has since explored the worlds of jazz, pop, and contemporary music. Her performances have taken her to concert halls, churches and even some living rooms. Her choice in musical companions is just as open which has helped lead her down the path of new, and for her, unexplored musical genres.
