The album Lo Specchio is an introspective yet accessible album, which takes the listener on a journey of discovery and contemplation, with tracks featuring stunning sublime pianism. It describes the human habit to sometimes reflect oneself in and through others. Lo Specchio was inspired by Daniela’s longing to look inside herself and dig as deep as possible: “We have a duty to welcome and nurture the talents and gifts that life has given us and we are responsible for that talent. It is a call, a vocation”, she says.
