Josué Daniel González:
"Respect to the author Christiane, and the duo TonSatz. I really like the path of your projects, that’s a great thing, how the composer has applied the thoughts and perception of the author to her music. I think the art that both have developed reflects in their nice personality and the way to do art. I love the message of encouraging artists: “to grow and to free themselves from darkness – for a better living”. That is an amazing inspiration!"
