Eusebio Leal, Historian of Havana commented: "When we listen to her voice we perceive such purity and emotion which makes us think that the noble inspiration of Cuban poets and troubadours has embodied in the graceful nature of this woman (...). When she sings mystery occurs and she has the power to draw us inevitably to listen to her, and then you can no longer do without her."
