SOY (I AM)
Sasha: “SOY” (I am) is a romantic, Italian stylized song, where our relationship with our “mother earth” presented as an interaction. In order to thrive you need to treat each other with care, love, attention and respect - it’s the only way to keep it alive … The absence of those above will , eventually, lead to disruption and disconnection , and finally - “death” of it. Mariana: This song is the voice of the earth in the first person, crying out to embrace it and give it a hope of change. Mother Earth feels without strength and needs to recover it.

"Cuesta" English translation: "Uphill"
It is a song of hope written a day of extreme despair. Inspired by a hummingbird that seemed to be lifeless and when I approached and touched it, it took flight. It seemed to need someone's warmth or simply rested from his flight.

"El clavel del aire" English translation: "Carnation of the Air"
It's a song that talks about freedom, about that free spirit that we need to blossom and fulfill. Inspired by the Carnation of the air, a plant that grows suspended in the air and that blooms anywhere, without soil.
