Once Upon a Time…

As a young adult I left my homeland Columbia to go on a life journey — an odyssey — to learn about the world and my place in it. And so I found Germany where I was warmly received. Over the following years, I studied acting and singing at the School of Acting in Hamburg and then played a variety of acting roles on many international stages. Despite years of success on stage, still the voice of my cultural identity and a sense of home felt far away from me. And so I felt the need to write. Initially, I planned a one-woman-show for the stage, but my story evolved into poems and songs. That is how this album “Logical Contradiction” has come to be. All of these songs are about my search and experience of carrying two cultures in one heart.
