CD Reviews

Melodic and Inventive.
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This CD came out right after "Frontera", which was truly a milestone in the recording history of this gifted duo. Although it does not reach the majestic level of "Frontera", nonetheless it has its share of brilliancy and creativity. It is a more intimate setting than the others, with Strunz playing acoustic nylon guitar for most of the CD, while Farah keeps to steel string. The result is a powerful blend of silk and steel that produces several unforgettable cuts: "Zambalera", based on a South American rhythm; "Sueños (Part I)" which starts out as a fantasy theme and delivers outstanding solos; and "The Feathered Serpent." Don't let the corny title fool you, this cut is just amazing, incorporating the sarod, brilliantly played by Ashish Khan. "Zambalera", in turn, features Enrique Cruz on zampoña and kena, and Hugo Pedroza on charango. These three gems well justify the purchase of this work. On the first listen, this CD might sound way too exotic and "out there", but it grows on you with further listening. Great job, guys."
