She wrote all the album's lyrics.
After being in the production and writing side of music for many years, Carmen decided to launch her first album Ficções e Verdades, and share her fictions and truths, through her own voice.
The album, has 15 songs that cover different styles: from Latin American song, Cuban rhythms, French song and Jazz, to MPB, with multiple references to the masters of Bossa Nova, and includes covers of Mais Feliz (Bebel Gilberto), and a vocal version accompanied by beatbox of Água de beber (Tom Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes).

In the summer of 2020, she started a new project with the Venezuelan artist Yani Martinelli. At this time, due to the pandemic difficulties, the project is on standby.
These difficulties, and the need to express herself, have made her return to origins and rediscover visual arts. She is preparing a new project trying to find a little light in these strange times.
