“This is a wonderful record by an emerging artist of talent and sensibility. These songs come from a gentle and open space that brings together elements of South American folk music with a fresh and transparent approach to songwriting. The production is sophisticated yet has a natural quality that's very attractive. ”
— Matthew Nicholl, Chair of the Contemporary Writing and Production Department at Berklee College of Music.

"I like to think that I am flexible matter, constantly molding and learning little by little to live in this world and to live with the people around me. The experience of life is so full of gigantic small events that I constantly find new paths to enjoy and to see everything in amore compassionate way. The amount of richness, light and darkness that happens inside and around us in 24 hours, is enough to be as happy and connected as we need, if we pay attention and can see life thriving in every corner" --Onna Lou
