Very much taken by balkan music, more specifically turkish, she visits the structures through her voice and plays with musicians of those cultures, developing the specific rythmes and makams inside her own composition. (…)
In august 2015, her first contemporary piece was for cello solo and was interpreted by Eric-Maria Couturier (Ensemble Intercontemporain of Paris) at the Music in Brionnais event.
