Killary Catacora Durán, born in 1990 in Majes (province of Caylloma, department of Arequipa, south of Peru), began her musical career at an early age. She studied at the Conservatory of Arequipa and at the age of 15 moved to Lima, where she recorded her first album "Canto al amanecer" (2008). After entering the faculty of Performing Arts of the Pontifical University Catholic of Peru, she released "Orígenes" (2013), which remains her last album to date.

One of the young promises of Peru's Andean-crossover music, Killary (from Quechua killariy, "to appear (the moon)") combines the traditional sounds of the Peruvian Sierra and the "Andean/Latin American music" with modern styles such as pop and romantic ballad. She does so with good taste, while attaining excellent outcomes.
