Brazilian and American accents has developed

“The [Carmizin] trio imbues their music with
inventive vocal harmonies and a hearty dose of
improvisation. Each member of the group takes a

"Carrie is very adept at Funk, Latin, and Jazz, as

forms. ...I believe the fuel to Carrie's fire is
her love of the music."
