Just as there is auteur cinema, there is auteur radio. It is radio for creation, artistic expression, reflection and experimentation.

—| Asbel López

Andrea Cohen was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She trained at the Ecole Normale Superieure de Musique in Paris, where she received a bachelor’s degree in piano and chamber music performance.
