Veronica - artist of unique, well fit into the global trends «world music», the owner of the voice and stature. At the same time, always current Russian romances like "Dark Eyes" and "The Long Road", are all the same tavern gypsy, a pile of bright skirts and hitting a backhand lines. To the irony was more noticeable, the band is inserted into the familiar texture of new chords and genre pieces, creating a sort of «world fusion» ( «The Tramp").

Songs composed by Veronica itself, close to the modern folk music is a kind of romance, reflection, feminine cunning interweaving of thoughts and imagesmultiplied by the well-chosen accompaniment. Her songs are close to the French (not Russian!) Chanson, in which she seeks the truth, reveals feelings and tells the story - the emigrant, women, artist, interspersing it all pleasant timbre of the French language and elegant finesse.
