Georgina Derbez's music is beautiful: Inside is refined, spiritual and of big and solid bones; On the outside it is gestural, sincere and always fun. Just like Georgina

– Carlos Sánchez Gutiérrez, composer

Georgina's music releases energy on all four sides. It is intense both in the luminous moments, which are many, as in the meditative ones, where it becomes poetry. It is a real pleasure to listen and, above all, to play her music.

– Alberto Rosado, pianist
