"Alejandra plays the cello. The cello hatched in the Renaissance, specifically in the Cinquecento, and went through mannerism to reach its maturity in the baroque, at the hands of Johann Sebastian Bach, whom Alejandra adores. "Protector of humanity", that is the name meaning of Alejandra and nothing protects us better than a hug. Perhaps for this reason, the gods who inspired the cello decided that, in order to extract its sound, deep and warm, it would have to be hugged. And there is nothing deeper and warmer than a hug. Nothing is more protective. When you hear and see Alejandra play, embracing the cello, you feel that they were born for each other. That is why Alejandra is a virtuoso cello player. Surely Apolo and Artemisa, our gods of music, dance, poetry and song, thought of Alejandra and Juan Sebastian Bach when they decided to inspire the creation of the instrument whose voice is so similar to that of the human being. The human being who, perhaps never like today, needs that hug, deep and warm, to protect them."
