"G.R.I.E.F. - Great Release of Internal Fears"

G.R.I.E.F. is a durational exploration of exhaustion of self and of sound, where flamenco transforms into trance and the body bursts with emotions.  

Dentro de mi pecho

             tengo yo un dolor

                            pa mientras viva, mare, en este mundo

                                             no sosiego yo.
