A native of São Paulo, Brazil, bora Waldman accompanied her family to Israel in a Kibbutz where she lived until the age of fourteen.
She then pursued her musical studies in Buenos Aires, in the Universidad Católica de Argentina. She is the only student in the history of this university that has been awarded two golden medals, both in orchestra conducting and composition.

In 2002, she perfected her formation in Paris (where she lives) with Janos Fürst, and with F.X. Roth and M. Levinas in the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique (CNSM).

Hailed as an energetic and profound young conductor, bora Waldman was discovered by the Orchestre National de France and Maestro Kurt Masur in 2006. Subsequently, she has collaborated on several projects with famous Maestros such as Kurt Masur, Sir Colin Davis and Krzystof Penderecki and conducted the Orchestre National de France for a Villa-Lobos concert.

She was named Revelation of ADAMI (Administration des Droits des Artistes et Musiciens Interprètes, or "Administration for the Rights of Artists and Musical Interpreters") and laureate of the foundation "Simone et Cino del Duca", under the auspices of the French Beaux-Arts Academy.

The Orchestre Régional Avignon-Provence announced the appointment of bora Waldman as its next music director, the first female conductor to be named to the post, effective 1 September 2020.
