Performance on Una y Mil Voces – Nuestro Secreto in French

Saturday, May 30, 2015 I was honoured to perform as a special guest on Una y Mil Voces hosted by Bartola on Perú’s national television station, TV Perú. It was wonderful to share the stage again with friends such as Jorge Pardo, Jorge Luis Jasso, Alejandro Velasquez, Julie Freundt, and Julio Andrade.
