She sings and writes songs inspired in the Taíno/African/European folklore of her native Dominican Republic while incorporating the wider influences of her multicultural background. Her extensive field research of Dominican folk music was recognized by the Grammy Foundation and brought to life in her critically acclaimed record, Anacaona. As a singer/songwriter she has created her original music inspired in the Dominican folklore. She has lived and performed at the Montreal Jazz Festival, among others. Her current work, including the single "Vamos a Gozar", showcases the contagious accordion music from the Dominican Republic and Latin America.
