Matria is the name of project, that intends through indigenous Ecuadorian folklore and jazz, to explore the importance of recognizing oneself in the source, in the mother. The idea of accepting myself within a medium as competitive as music, and understanding that only by honoring my history, I could generate sincere artistic pieces, linked to my perspective as an individual and even discovering myself within jazz as a fresh voice, which does not try to rescue any tradition but to rescue myself from the uncertainty of knowing who I am.
