Maria Alejandra Quintanilla

Working with Maria is one of the best and most emotional experiences in my career as a sound engineer. Her voice is full of emotion, soul and beauty, and it's hard not to get emotional while working on one of her tracks. Maria is a unique talent and she always, always delivers! - Jose Diogo Neves

Breathing Taiwan

Renato Diz | Maria Quintanilla | Sayun Chang

Breathing Taiwan is a visceral journey, an otherworldly tribute to the unheard stories of Taiwanese ancient culture and its fascinating history.

Through the percussive sounds of native instruments such as the tatuk we are immediately transported to the indigenous landscapes of Taiwan.

Once arrived, we can witness the echoes of deep pain yet a profound sense of pride and celebration through the aural rituals of ancestry.

This music is as much a symbolic interpretation as it is an immersive experience into a world of wordless emotions that are altogether universal.
