Maya Solovéy

Wooden Shoe Books, 508 s. 5th Street, Philly, PA 19147

I love Latin American culture and their passionate women.

Maya has "a voice like a warm wind and croons stories of a soul caught somewhere between sorrow and orgasm. " Will be singing in English, Spanish, and Portugese. No guarantees made that you won't fall in love with her, her songs, her voice, her soul.
