DRØME Presents CRUSH: Duendita

Directed by Maria Marrone

Produced by Satchel Lee

Sound Design by Lucio Westmoreland



We are back with the fourth episode of DRØME Presents CRUSH. This time, meet soul singer and songwriter Duendita. Director Maria Marrone spends two minutes with the beautiful New York native and gives us a brief but charming and personal glimpse into the artist’s life and love of music. “To be honest, I don’t really spend much time making music consciously," she says. "It’s a surrender. I empty myself so something else can flow through me, if that makes sense”. 

Watch the video above to hear more words of wisdom and make sure you listen to her new single “Pray” from her upcoming debut project, direct line to My Creator.


In the making of DRØME we hope to showcase a community of doers and nourish an attitude of empathy in a world that teaches us to pass judgment rather than practice kindness. The stories, images, and people shared in this magazine are an amalgamation of perspectives often overlooked or explicitly excluded from art and media worlds. The dearth of diverse identities and viewpoints within the arts is harrowing, especially for a young generation that is fighting its hardest to overcome conservative notions of order ultimately practiced as acts of discrimination against the very people and things we find most inspiring. In DRØME, the featured creators and creations encourage us to never shy away from who we are and what we want. Each artist, in sharing their story, embodies their own definition of agency. Against a mainstream ideology that indoctrinates patriarchal, capitalist, and hateful theories turned into policy, the artists in our first issue represent the ways in which art can take power back from society's denigrating control.
