Tinku (a quechua word) is about encounter. It is like a fabric, formed by the encounter between the hole and the thread, which in a going and coming movement fills the void.

Here it brings the idea of a duplicity as life-forming. BELLA plays the “TWINS” – twin devices which generate sound waves from the oscillation of light and shadow.

Thus collaborations were woven at a distance between me and Ale Hop, Ava Rocha, Inés Terra and Raquel Dimantas, all latinamerican artists, reminding us of the ancient meeting where languages were created around a tree.

"This album was recorded during 2020 and 2021, and all dialogues took place remotely. Each artist recorded in her own house or home studio, except Raquel Dimantas, recorded by BELLA in Rio de Janeiro.
The idea of bringing these artists together was born out of a desire of mine to connect women from Latin America, who, with their very own languages, could weave points of light and shadow, just like the Andean tapestry. It is a tribute to the richness and resistance of the culture of this continent, and an updating of its memories."
