Synopsis

Album Description
Bobi Céspedes is a singer, composer and percussionist as well as a priestess in the Yoruba-Lucumi spiritual tradition. Her solo debut couples deep Afro-Cuban and Yoruban grooves with one of the most distinctive and compelling voices in world music. Bobi has been gathering acclaim both with her 12-piece ensemble Conjunto Céspedes and as a featured vocalist with Mickey Hart's Planet Drum and Bembé Orisha bands. Produced by Greg Landau (Susanna Baca and Patato) Rezos marks the solo debut of an emerging global diva. "Bobi's voice is an instrument equally capable of summoning orisha and filling dance floors"-Folk Roots Magazine

CD Reviews

Ocha Music that Moves you!
T. Ozier | Ga USA | 03/07/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you want a CD that's rich in vibrant vocals, spiritual depth, pulsating African-Latin beats, this CD is a must. Don't pass up an opportunity to hear ancient soulful chants with contempary finger-snapping rhythms. Bobi voice gives us a heavenly glance of what soul-stirring, heart-felt songs should be."
Takes you to another place and time

"THe second cut "Obatala" had me transfixed. The rhythms, the vocals, the mix... all work together to reach inside your soul, whether you are of the Faith or not, and play the native chords. I LOVE THIS CD! Glad to hear Bobi again, and look forward to more."
A bridge between the old and the new

"This CD ties a link between tradition Yoruba/Santeria music with new world jazz, rhythm and blues. Excellent music, voice, and inspirational message!"
