In the veins of this versatile singer/songwriter flow the rhythms and melodies of her native South America; the excitement of Brazilian samba, the sweet seductiveness of bossa nova, the passion of tango and her love for the exploration of many other musical styles insinuate their way into her music. Anima, Matzner’s first solo album after diving into jazz (released in 2018 under Triplet Records), explores the soft side of her musical soul, filtered through a firm commitment to song writing and a new-found perspective on her South American past, an achievement honoured by a recent Global Music Award.
