She brings the piano to life with an immense talent for highly nuanced improvisation. Born in Havana, Cuba in 1983, Marialy began her musical education at the age of seven studying piano in one of Cuba’s most prestigious Conservatoriums (Alejandro Garcia Caturla Conservatorium). At the age of 15 she was accepted into the National School of Arts (Escuela Nacional de Artes) in Havana, studying under Olga Valiente.

The jny:Melbourne-based Cuban's stock has certainly risen since that introduction, notably as a result of becoming the first female winner of the Montreux Jazz Festival Solo Piano Competition in 2012.
