Born in 1994 in Barañáin (Navarra), Iñigo gained his Bachelor Degree in Music from the Conservatory of Music in Navarra with Nekane Iturrioz and his Master of Arts and Advanced Diploma degrees at the Royal Academy of Music in London under Professor Owen Murray. He has taken part in concert series and festivals in Spain and the United Kingdom, including the BBC Proms, Adelburgh, Froome and Spitafields festivals (UK), “La noche en blanco” (Cádiz) and the Accordion Cultural Week (Zarauz), as well as performing in venues such as the Royal Festival Hall, the Elgar Room of the Royal Albert Hall, Wigmore Hall, St. Martin-in-the-Fields, the Union Chapel, St. James's Piccadilly (London), St David's Hall (Cardiff), Glyndebourne Opera House, Colston Hall (Bristol) and Shakespeare's Rose Theatre (York).

Iñigo enjoys collaboration with contemporary composers, which has led to the première of new works for solo accordion, chamber music (with different ensembles and instruments) and accordion and orchestra. A highlight has been the première of David Johnstone’s ‘Concert for accordion and orchestra’, with the orchestra of the Professional Conservatory Pablo Sarasate, and Tiento IV by Xabier Sarasa, with the orchestra of the Conservatory of Music of Navarra. He has also participated in projects such as ‘Música Visible’, SIGNUM, MARTIROlógika (together with the Garaikideak Contemporary Music Centre), and several ‘Composers Projects‘ at the Royal Academy of Music, London. He is member of the Diphonon Duo, along with violist Michael Iskas and the Duo Giuliano-Mikeleiz with cellist Daryl Giuliano. He also performs with "Unicorn Frequency", a six piece band led by Romanian violinist Bogdan Vacarescu that plays Eastern-European music mixed with classical and jazz styles. Among the instrumental ensembles he has collaborated with are the Philharmonia Orchestra (under Vladimir Ashkenazy), BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Glyndebourne Youth Opera, Deco and Riot Ensembles and Belsize Opera.
