During her student years, she experimented and learned several music genres such as Jazz, Classical Broadway songs, Pop and Rock, but her biggest focus was and still is Latin American music, going from traditional music from many countries such as Brazil, Colombia and Cuba, to more contemporary styles such as Latin Jazz, Salsa, Cumbia and Merengue among others.
