Her parents are both immigrants of Colombian and Italian decent, and you can hear this loudly and see it clearly through her 360 approach as a musical artist. Her music is predominantly soulful, with R&B and hip hop undertones that she grew up listening to. More recently infusing folkloric flavours from her motherland and pioneering a new wave of Latino/London fusions to the world.

Exploding on to the scene with their two EP releases ‘The Groove’ and ‘Bad Gear’ in 2016. With their debut going straight in at No.5 in iTunes Hip Hop Charts, their second body of work saw them receive heavyweight plaudits from the likes of Pigeons & Planes and Notion Magazine due completely to the strength of their underground heat through tracks like ‘Anne Boleyn’ and ‘Gwolla’ - sending serious Underachievers and Flatbush Zombies signals.
