The early contact with this artistic milieu influenced her just as much as her mother’s favourite records (Kate Bush) and the school of wise women she so cherishes: Catherine Ringer, Nina Hagen and even Mylène Farmer.
Of Catalan and Polish origin, the Nice native moved to Brussels in 2013 after a time in the Swiss underground scene.
As a theatre actress, she explores the many things her voice can do with an opera singer on her album Live à Las Vegas.
