After finishing the movie she moved together with her family in Romania and she started to perform in a series of concerts in Cafe Deko in Bucharest. In 2009, Alexandrina released her first album, "Omul de lut"("The Clay Man") which included songs such as "Printre flori"("Among flowers"), "Roule le taxi", "Maria (de leagăn)"("Maria (lullaby)"). Alexandrina was said to have a special voice and approach. Over the past years Alexandrina has sung at Gărâna Jazz Festival, Peștera Bolii Festival and Transilvania International Film Festival and appeared at several Romanian TV shows on Pro TV, TVR1 and Antena1 channels. She gained most of the fans through the Internet and peer-to-peer networks, since she refuses commercial promotion of her work. Alexandrina sings in Romanian, French and Russian.
Although her style would be difficult to situate into a single music genre, it is influenced by acoustic music, rock music, jazz music and soul music with innovative elements in both her songs and lyrics. Though she is sometimes accompanied by other instrumental performers during her concerts, her beautiful solo voice-and-piano live performances are perhaps most notable. Among the artists who influenced Alexandrina's style are PJ Harvey, Björk, Morcheeba, and, above all, Tori Amos, with whom she believes she has in common the joy of playing the piano and the sensitivity of her lyrics, which may at times seem senseless. Her first album, "Om de lut" ("The Clay Man"), was released on April 9, 2009 and was a collection of old and new songs. Alexandrina said of it, "'The Clay Man' is my child, a beautiful child, healthy, gentle[...].His heart beats on jazz, soul, funk and electropop rhythms.
The Clay Man will sing about wonder, flight, quest, ships and seas, planes, green eyes, nostalgia and insomnia, flowers and nerves, Zorro and Prince Charming... love and the cosmos, women, rain, wind, about the King and the Queen." Some of her songs have been remixed by Romanian electronic musicians including Dan Handrabur, Matze("Printre Flori"), and Silent Strike("Printre Flori", "Noi Doi"). The second album, "Flori de Spin" has been released in 2014 and contains the hit singles Orasul Umbre and Flori de Spin.
