The emotion her singing elicits in the listener is summarized in a beautiful quote from the great Nobel Prize-winning Portuguese author Jose Saramago:
"The first time I heard Tania Libertad sing,
it was a revelation from on high - from a place where only a naked voice might go,
alone in the world,
unaccompanied by any instrument.
Tania was singing the Rafael Alberti composition "La Paloma" acapella,
and each note touched a string in my soul until I was completely dazzled."
