Muza is one of the leaders of the modern Chilean music renaissance exploding in the wake of the oppressive Pinochet regime. Her debut Chilean album, ""Dream Electronico,"" caught the attention of US based Independent label, Petroglyph Records who signed her for the international release of her second album, ""Cambio de Estacion."" Critically acclaimed it won the 2006 Independent Music Award for best Dance/Electronica Album.

Muza dug deep into her roots for the inspiration leading to ""Terciopelo,"" her 2008 Petroglyph Records release. There she discovered the passionate Boleros and Bosa Novas that brought global popularity to Latin music in the late ‘50s and early ‘60s.

Terciopelo is dedicated to Consuelo Velásquez the Mexican composer of the major hits “Bésame Mucho” and “Amar y Vivar.” Muza covers these and other classics such as “Mañana de Carnaval” (“A Day in the Life of a Fool”) beautifully honoring the originals but with her unique and exciting contemporary electronic style. Additionally, Muza performs new and original songs of lost or unrequited love that flow seamlessly with the theme of the album.

The English translation for Terciopelo is Velvet, perfectly describing Muza’s buttery smooth vocals. The incredible musicianship, production and arrangements on this album appeal to adult audiences of all languages.

CD Baby, who receives 250 CD submissions per day called Terciopelo ""...one of the best we've ever heard. Even if you don't understand Spanish, the lovely melodies and rich, evocative production of songs come through to make this is an album perfect for cocktail hour or a romantic dinner for two.""

Currently, Terciopelo is a finalist for three Independent Music Awards! Winners to be announced in December.
