In Tattiana’s Own Words…
Romance: it’s in the music on the radio all day and night long that makes me want to dance with myself in the middle of a simple living room floor.
It’s in the people outside, the neighborhood, where browner people live with all their history, music, dance, culture, struggle, and belonging to one another.
It’s in my heart, which has increased in relaxation and ambition for the people.
We who sing out loud to every song and with our hearts, cherish our artists for an entire lifetime. We are the blood and the strength of a country. Without us, civilization cannot exist.
