"...almost naked: just the splendid voice of Mariel Martínez accompanied by the guitar of Alejandro Picciano, steeped in jazzy echoes. The violin and the bandoneon accompanied a few songs, and there is no need for much more in order to enjoy this highly recommended record.”
(Revista Efe Eme, December 2008)
"This passionate duo goes deep into Buenos Aires most classic roots, with songs such as «Melodía de arrabal», «Tinta roja», «Como dos extraños», «Malena», «Oro y plata», «Soledad» o «Vuelvo al Sur» that sound as discovery. Jazzy echoes and imaginable walks around other styles – folklore or rock music that these musicians have gone through- they reinforce themselves without refill and with natural nostalgia with an electric violin and a bandoneon, keeping the touch of the exquisite improvisation”
