Paraguay to the USA

We caught up with the beautiful Latin Songstress to find out more about her future moves and why MAMACITA is gonna be your new spring anthem...


Thank you for being part of our zine.  Tell us more about yourself,  when did you know you wanted to be an Artist?
 

Thank you for having me!! I knew I wanted to be an artist since I was born. However, in my family no one was a singer or songwriter so when I started in 2014. I began to explore and learn about the music industry. 



Were are you located and where are you originally from? 

 

Now I am located in Hollywood. I am living in LA since 2016. Exactly 3 years.  And I am originally from Paraguay, which is located in South America. 


Top musical influences?
 

I would say right now one of the artists I’m listening to a lot is Charlie Puth. I love his new album!  Also Panic at the Disco, then Lady Gaga, Pink, and Aaron Chupa. 



Goals for 2019 and Beyond?
 

My New Years resolution was to get more placements on TV. (Last year my song got placed in I Zombie). Getting more streams on Spotify and digital platforms, release more songs and to perform outside Los Ángeles. I also want to get my artist visa so I will put that as a goal as well. 
 

 Which comes first for you the lyrics or the musical inspo?
 

I write lyrics or words eveyr time I hear a word that I like. I write every time I feel an emotion. I write tracks every time I hear something that inspires me or that moves me.  I analyze  why I like that track or that song so much, and then I take it as an inspiration to do something similar.  I check my phone notes a try to figure out what will match the track best.

Where can our readers catch a live show soon?
 

Actually I’m not performing live currently, but I go often to open mics and jams around Hollywood blvd.  It wouldn't be rare for you to find me there.
