Je dois admettre qu’à la lecture de ces mots, j’ai coulé des larmes car je me suis rendue compte que d'une certaine manière, cet héritage est à la base de mon propre engouement pour l'amour révolutionnaire, l’héritage d'un amour qui sert les intérêts de la liberté. Par exemple le deuxième album, je l’ai fait sortir l’année passée (2014), ça s’appelle « Fils ».
