In our country we are known as the "the leading vocal girls group". Since our childhood we are singing together. We have won several important music awards and recently we had our first No. 1 hit in the national radio and TV.
Where we live, people are listening to Salsa, Son and Reggeton and they are singing in Spanish, something which is natural for us, because we have it in our blood. But since our beginnings we went far beyond...
We do smooth R&B and Jazz, Pop and Bossa Nova, even Hip Hop, House and Dance. We also sing in English because we like the fusion of international styles and the combination with elements of our local music.
Our new and 3rd CD, "The Way" (September 2011) is based on our own compositions, texts and arrangements. Enjoy some of the songs on this website and do not miss our new videos "Angry Boy" and "Guajiro", which offer you insights in the wide spectrum of our music...
Not to forget our band, which accompanies us during concerts and all live performances. Our 6 young musicians are among the top class in our country.
But let's also hear, what other people say about us, for example Glyn Phillips from www.worldmusic.co.uk in England. It seems like he fell in love with us, when he saw us at our "improvised" live concert during WOMEX World Music Fair 2010 in Copenhagen:
"The most sublime contemporary soul and RnB, rich harmonies, jazzy licks, funky drums and bass and lyrics delivered perfectly in English as well as Spanish."
"Their voices are pitch perfect, smooth as butter, rich as chocolate, and as for the harmonies ..."
"Trust me, these ladies are special. Very special indeed."
"You see, it's not about "World Music"; it's about World Class Music. And Sexto Sentido are world class."
