The singer boldly exceeds the boundaries of jazz, experimenting with African (Cesária Évora), Balkan, and Brazilian (CD Caminho with Brazilian drummer Guello) music, as well as contributing to free jazz, classical and classical contemporary music records. With Kwadrofonik ensemble she prepared a concert programme and the album Lutosławski, Tuwim. Songs Not Only for Children.
