Pauline Joutard (1890–1957) was a French-born pianist who performed under the stage name Miirrha Alhambra.[1]

Her sister Flora Joutard and she had studied in Bad Homburg before touring Europe[2][3][4] and South America[5][6][7][8][9][10] together in the early 1900s. A friend took her to Mérida to play where she would meet and marry her husband[citation needed], Domingo Fernando Evia y Barbachano (1883–1977), a wealthy Mexican landowner who was a member of two families that have been prominent in the politics and culture of Yucatán since the mid 19th century[citation needed], one of which, the Barbachanos, has been described[by whom?] as "one of the most powerful of Yucatán’s oligarchy[citation needed].

She lived with her husband for some years in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico. There she gave birth (on July 30, 1910) to her son Edgar Domingo Evia y Joutard, the future photographer known professionally as Edgar de Evia (1910–2003)[citation needed].

On 30 June 1912, she arrived with her husband and two-year-old son in New York City aboard the liner "Progreso" [11] and lived in the United States for the rest of her life[citation needed].
