For music fans around the world who don’t know you much, what is your musical background?
I am an all-you-can-eat buffet. I have been singing since birth. By the age of 7 I had won two national singing awards and started my professional career in the music industry, signed my first recording contract at age 17 after opening for great Latin American artists. . I’ve been a musician ever since and it took me all over the world.
You just released a track with Dutch producer DFRNS (Hidde Huijsman) called âMariaâ. What was it like to fuse Latin sounds with elements of flamenco alongside modern electronic rhythms, especially with punchy basslines?
“Maria” is the rebellious side of every woman that comes to life and it’s the first song we did to recreate exactly what I had in mind. Hidde and I are a great team, we managed to marry my Latin origins and his EDM sauce through flamenco. Discover the track now!
What makes this track special in your opinion and why should music fans absolutely listen to it?
Maria is my favorite, she has incredibly wild lyrics, catchy flows, melodies to die for and a production that rocks your soul.
What are the influences of electronic music that inspired you to make a track like “Maria”?
