Her lyrics make a deep impact on the listener since she strikes the depth of human nature with her sharp-sighted views and her subtle but powerful poetry. The honesty of her melodies is a result of her argentine roots and together with her beautiful and sensitive way of looking at life they make her music truly unique.
