On the occasion of the Year of Mozart, the Foundation "Don Juan de Borbón" commissioned Miriam with a new project that became her second album "Mozart, Sueño Flamenco". Being another major success, this LP led to various covers at publications such as Diva as well as numerous shows in major Central European cities and China, including the Shanghai EXPO.

Most recently, not only did Miriam compose the musical "Lilith Carmen" (premiered at the Biennial of Flamenco Art in the Chaillot National Theatre in Paris) but she also performed in the show as a pianist, a singer, a dancer as well as a percussionist.
