Salsa Meets the Far East

"While many fans in the United States and Europe are becoming familiar with the ever growing popularity of salsa music, it might come to a surprise to many that the Far East was one of the first regions of the world to embrace this musical style's sensational rhythms. In this case, La Orquestra de la Luz hails from Japan, and I must say that they are truly gifted in every sense.Lead singer Nora, who learned Spanish phonetically (she doesn't know what she is singing about) sings in the language of the conquistadors with perfect native fluency. Without the slightest trace of an accent, Nora sings her heart off with an impress ional voice and talent that many Latin Explosion artists can't even reproduce. Touring the world over, and having fans throughout the globe, Nora and her band capture the true essence of salsa.The songs on this album are all spectacular, and if you thought that salsa was a regionalized musical style you are wrong. Nora and her band have inspired a wave of salsa band booms throughout the world, with the most notable bands hailing from such diverse countries as Finland, Italy, the Congo, and Israel. La Orquestra de la Luz deserves honor, respect, and a special place in the salsa hall of fame for daring to do something different in a country where traditions and customs remain unchanged. If you want to hear a voice that will surprise you in every way, then purchase this album and listen to the wonderful rhythms of Nora and her band."
Unbelievable Sound and Rhythm

"By far, the best salsa rhythms I have ever heard with such a wide variety. There are slow ballad types, rhythmic dance types and fast high-enery types. It is fun to listen to, even you don't have a taste for salsa. You could say it has a bit of pop flavor to it. I especially like 'Descarga de La Luz' featuring a solo of Tito Puente. And I can't tell you how many times I have dedicated 'Amame' to my wife. Their female lead singer has a wonderful voice. I recommend it. The music is very, very uplifting."
