CRITIC REVIEWS

The Needle Drop

What Marchita has in concision it also has in beauty and emotional potency.

AllMusic
This album makes use of her entire musical background, including indie pop, classical, jazz, and Latin American folk traditions.

Rolling Stone
This Mexican artist's debut is gorgeously understated, guided by her gauzy voice and rich, acoustic arrangements. Tapping into the vastness of Mexican music, she thrills in simplicity.

Marchita é como um abraço aconchegante em uma noite tranquila: sereno, belo e reconfortante.

Stunning. Easily one of the most beautiful records I have heard in 2022 thus far. The vocal performances are excellent and the instrumentation backs things up in an incredible way.

This is an incredible listen and ... read more

Instrumentalmente, muy minimalista, hace lo justo pero necesario.
Con letras que contienen un mensaje potente, este álbum es un triunfo para Silvana.
Bonito álbum.
