About The Storyteller
Flor Bromley is a recording artist, bilingual singer/songwriter, actress, storyteller and puppeteer. She has a degree in Acting, Musical Theatre Performance and a BA in Theatre Education. She is originally from Peru.
Her love for music began at a very early age. She wrote her first song at the age of 14. Out of drama school, she started working with the Peruvian Ministry of Education taking her stories and music to the most needed and isolated places. When Flor began working with children, she was inspired by their magical sense of imagination and started creating songs with them and for them.
