La Traditora was founded in 2010 by three talented young musicians who had graduated from the prestigious school for early music “Schola Cantorum Basiliensis”. They have performed at Festivals throughout Europe, the USA and South America, collaborating with renowned early music ensembles including La Cetra Barockorchester Basel, Concerto Scirocco, Ensemble L’Art du Bois, Il Profondo, Duo Marti-Vicens and Per Far Lieto, and have performed with well-respected soloists like Andrea Marcon, Dominique Vellard, Paolo Pandolfo, Rolf Lislevand, Hopkinson Smith, Jordi Savall, William Christie, Pierre Hamon, and Gottfried von der Goltz.
Their successful Swiss debut was applauded with standing ovations, and since then, they have committed themselves to a dynamic interaction with their audience; their performances are full of virtuosity, color and playful confrontation.
Having different cultural backgrounds - French, Catalan and Chilean - Amélie Chemin (bass and treble viol), Maria Ferré (lutes, early guitars and theorbo) and Catalina Vicens (historic percussion, organ and harpsichord) have integrated their diversity into a common language of intensity, sensuality and humor.
La Traditora offers a vast range of renaissance and baroque music, which showcases their spontaneous musicianship. They also collaborate with prestigious guest musicians and dancers, which further enriches the diversity of their programs.
