Graciela Siman was born in the city of La Plata, province of

was 6 years of age, within a family of musicians who supported her.
Her father played the bandoneón (a kind of accordion)
with an orchestra; her mother, the piano, and her grandfather, the
violin at the Teatro Argentino in La Plata.
She studied guitar and singing at the Provincial Conservatory "Gilardo
Gilardi" and has authored many themes and poems. She participated
in several choirs and had contact with local folklore when she was

Correa, Cacho Barros and Andrés Gallero (guitar), Ariel Barros
and Cacho Queirolo (keyboard) and Pucho Coralli (bandoneón),
At the onset of her career, Graciela Siman was selected in a casting

with the show she has called "Tango con perfume de mujer".
The wide acclaim she has received so far in La Plata as well as in
other cities in the province of Buenos Aires, besides her participation
