Born in Manzanillo, Cuba, Zahili graduated from the National Conservatory of Music in Havana and quickly became immersed in the performance and production of traditional Cuban music, as well as Salsa, Latin jazz and other world music. She migrated to Canada in 2002 as a keyboardist with the all-female band D'talle and soon performed in such festivals as Nuits d'Afrique and TLN Carnival Festival in Montreal; the Toronto Street and Beaches International jazz festivals, and the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival.

After a six-year performance stint in Asia, with a variety of multifaceted bands, Zahili was awarded a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music in September of 2013. During her time at Berklee, she has performed and collaborated with Ingrid Jensen, Ruben Rada, Jon Secada, Paquito D' Rivera, Kim Burrell, and Emmanuel Jal, among others.
