Elli attended the Uruguyan American School, and when her mother remarried & moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina, she attended the Instituto Bayard, a British school. When she was fourteen, her mother & step father moved to Paris, and she had to learn French in a couple of months so she could attend high school. She tried several schools, including an art schoot, l'Ecole des Arts Appliquées, but dropped out before getting a "baccalauréat" to start her first band, the Stinky Toys, the first French punk band, playing several London punk Festivals along with the Clash & the Sex Pistols.
Elli appeared on the cover of 'Melody Maker' & that convinced the until then extremely reluctant French record companies to sign them a deal. After two albums, the Stinky Toys split and Elli and Stinky Toy Jacno then released several albums as the techno pop duo 'Elli & Jacno'. Their last was Les nuits de la pleine lune (1984), the score to Eric Rohmer's movie. Elli then went solo, her music becoming more personal, more Latin and had several hits in France, including Toi mon Toit, mega hit of 1986, now a standard.
After a break, Elli decided to go back to acting & school, & worked with 'Andreas Voutsinas', who was Lee Strasberg's assistant for twenty years and created the Paris "Actor's Studio", le Théatre des Cinquante. She also took classes with Madeleine Barchevska and Bob Mc Andrew.
