She explained her writing process here with “When I write, I write step-by-step. I just write a few words, and then I come back to the words. I have a lot of songs that have just four words. It starts like this, and I came back one or two years after. I work on it when I have a feeling to do it. I never force myself to do something. I think that I have to respect the inspiration. I just understood that you have to leave things, feel things, travel, meet people, get alone—and after, the music and lyrics come.” She has strong relation with her roots, so traditional instruments are used in her performances.
