“This song is a summary of the growth and maturation that has taken place within me in the past few years. Realizing that holding peace and grace is a wiser goal than chasing happiness. For while we can’t avoid the pendulum of our lives constantly swinging from one side to the other, between joy and sorrow, light and dark, we can practice holding peace in any circumstance. Growing roots and becoming our own centre, attracting all that is in our highest good to come to us. Understanding, in our wisdom, that all that happens does so to teach us, to help us grow, and to deepen our sense of compassion and solidarity towards one another.”

– Markéta


“I am hoping this song can spread some healing to people who are in pain. To help them feel a little better. To be reminded that they are not alone.”

– Markéta

Among The Living, Marketa’s second single following the summer solstice release of Quintessence, is available now via all streaming platforms.


Mother, Marketa’s third single following Quintessence and Among The Living, is available now via Bandcamp and here at all streaming platforms.


“May this song be a vessel to you and carry you on its wings. Lay down, close your eyes, listen, and give yourself permission to let go and lift off.”

– Markéta

Quintessence is available now through Marketa’s Bandcamp & via other streaming platforms here. Please find more about the song here and enjoy.

We Are Good

I want to use this opportunity to share with you a video made back in 2012 in Argentina by my friend Alejandro Rojas to a song of mine called We Are Good.
