Performing some of her songs titled “Woman”, “Freedom”, “Sweet Justice”, “Dame Amor” among others, CHAE’ s acoustic folk- rock sound combined with her rhythmic soulful voice is a true hit wherever she performs. Her Latin tropical roots can also be heard in much of the new music she composes. CHAE and the music she creates has often been compared to Nina Simone, Sheryl Crow and India Irie to name a few, but her ability to compose both in Latin and English along with the talent of being able to change her genre of music at will makes her stand out among the rest. More importantly, CHAE creates intelligent, moral, women empowering and socially conscious music which is enlightening, refreshing and much needed in today’s world.
