“I love the feeling of kidnapping that the music gives to me.
I’m a tool in its hands, free at the same time to give voice to what I have experienced and lived, through an authentic language, made of cells, muscles, memories and emotions, which also translates my silence.
And my curiosity is a continuous journey that always brings me beyond form, it surprises my breath in infinite new ways, all to be talked about and to live.”
