Silvia defines her latest work, “Toda la vida, un día”, as “A record, A concert, Like a whole life, Like a day, from sun to sun, Circular, Whole life, a day, 5 movements, 5 ages, 5 colours.

A work that is born from longing with the desire to unite longings: hence the contrast between the intimacy of a voice and a guitar with a choir. The shared song, the dissolution of the self, salvation. I like to imagine that here in the choir it’s all of you. Let us sing.”
