I had written a long post with these ideas in mind. Then, deemed it unnecessary and self-contradictory. Instead, these are my thoughts on political involvement considering I don't live in Colombia.

1) Sometimes all we can do is make space for those who have an important message to get across. 

2) Strive to make an impact on our immediate surroundings with our actions; listen, support, make space.

3) Listen/read, as much as possible, to people who are closest to the problems/issu...

When I was about 7 years old I read somewhere that every year gets shorter; I remember thinking that it was some kind of scientific fact. Later on I realized that it was nothing more than the popular phrase ‘‘time flies’’ the one we hear all adults say as they watch us grow up and take on new responsibilities.

Just until recently I started to get that ‘‘time flies’’ thing. Up until the beginning of this year I felt the complete opposite; every day, every week and every month f...

Boston es el hogar de aproximadamente 152,000 estudiantes inscritos en alguna de las 35 universidades que se encuentran aquí. Mi historia es una de 152,000. Miles de personas y familias vienen de distintos países a vivir aquí temporalmente o permanentemente, no solo a estudiar, también a trabajar, y entonces es una experiencia común, la compartimos muchos en una ciudad como esta.  Aun así, no es una experiencia que yo pueda generalizar pues se que afecta a cada persona de una...

Me fui de Memphis con el corazón bastante arrugado porque aunque supiera que venía algo diferente, me sentía algo derrotada, sin embargo ahora entiendo que fue más valiente aceptar que ese no era mi lugar. De cualquier manera, tuve un respiro de mi primera experiencia por fuera de casa, estuve en Cartagena durante el verano… y fue exactamente eso, un respiro, fugaz. Fueron 3 meses que pasaron bastante rápido.

Aun tenía que tomar decisiones importantes y establecer como iba a a...

Tenía 17 años cuando vine a vivir a Estados Unidos, mi primer destino fue la ciudad de Memphis en Tennessee. En ese entonces yo no decía que vivía en Memphis pues no lo entendía así, yo estaba ahí solo para estudiar, tenía la certeza de que mi vida estaba en Cartagena, allá estaban mi familia y mis amigos más cercanos.

Iba a pasar semestres completos lejos de mi casa y aunque soy ciudadana Estadounidense y Colombiana,  en la declaración de aduana siempre marqué que residía en...

In an era where paying for music, films and tv feels like a punishment, we keep making free music and no revenue for artists the norm.

Two days after the recording date of my upcoming album I met a new friend, I told him I had just graduated from school so he asked what I was up to. Since the making of an album is sort of a big deal, I told him I had just been in the studio. He was so excited and asked me: ''Where can I listen to it? Is the album on Spotify?''. I thought it was really cute, because, as you probably know if you are a musician yourself, it takes a bit more than a few days to g...

I'm making an album. Man. I never thought I would organize a project this big. I'm surprised and happy my life has taken this direction. I've met truly wonderful souls full of patience, love and inspiration. I move in an environment full of creative people. Creative people with responsibility. People that strive to make this world a better place, to create enjoyment for others, to further explore the music from different regions, to bring awareness to current issues, to...
