These appearances are part of the 16-year-old singer and musician's European summer tour, otherwise known as the Mozart Ignite Tour. (#MozartIgniteTour)

She and her parents were based in Frigiliana for five years, when Mozart was between the ages of 5 and 10, travelling during the summer months, and living and going to school in the Axarquia village in the winter.

Since 2006, Mozart has been home-schooled, or as she says, “world-schooled”, travelling from country to country with her parents, visiting 48 in total. Currently based in Los Angeles, Mozart is trilingual, speaking English, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese, and has worked professionally in all three languages.

She lists her musical influences as Ed Sheeran, Simon and Garfunkel, the Beatles, Jesus Corbacho Enrique Iglesias and currently Halsey and Rixton. Playing the violin since two years old, and piano since three, Mozart started writing songs at the age of four. No slouch on the literary front, she loved Shakespeare as a toddler. Her early creative development was no doubt helped by the fact that her parents are both artistic-performer types – mum is an actress/writer, and dad a visual artist/creative director.

In addition, Mozart champions environmental and social issues, and is an actress. With a very high IQ, she has already finished her first year of college.

Mozart will be travelling with her parents first of all in the UK, where performed at the Baltic in Newcastle (8 June) and gave a keynote speech at Tech on the Tyne conference (9 June) about being a world-schooled digital nomad tech-teen.

In total, her trip will cover nearly 3,000km, merely a dainty footstep compared to her global wanderings.
