"After experiencing this outstanding EP, we sense that we've ventured into a realm of intimacy and personal expression.

About 'Traces of You' / 'Dentro Questo Vento'- 2022

"Fodde has become a skilled songwriter. In her third album, she blends fivecatchy originals with the classic 'No One Knows Me But You,' which stands out.


- She revitalizes 'That Old Feeling' more expressively than Chet Baker."

- Jazz Journal

"Her virtuosity is respectful of the talented collaborators around her, all capable of musically underlining even a well-written piece, madeup of languid moments of reflection mixed with others where Berlin'shumidity penetrates even the caliente soul. A great display of vocal technique and virtuosity in this album with compositions that blend beautiful jazz and traditional Brazilian, offering incredible emotions in music." - Musicalnews
