Las niñas del agua

Music and storytelling

Our stories are brought together by the waters, through the waves of the sea. We are born in different countries Brazil, Spain, Germany and Portugal and some of us crossed the waters of our homeland to meet in The Netherlands and here we combine our music and our stories forming this beautiful project: Las niñas del agua. With our project we share with all people our stories and the stories of many other giving them a soundtrack.

From the year 2004 on she played with different bands and musicians in various genres and also started writing original songs. After graduating from high school in Germany, where she was born and raised, she decided to move to her parents’ native county: The Netherlands.
