This music talks about real life: love, pain, weakness, dreams, human relationships. Rakel´s music is a stylistic fusion: "When people ask me about the style of this album, I can´t define it just in one word. It´s a personal equation resulting from my musical identity, with unique proportions of SOUL, FUNK, JAZZ, HIP HOP and POP. I don´t think about styles. I just think about what kind of color I want in each song, in each message I share".
