Toledo's "Mestizo" will take you on a cultural journey!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This brotha's guitar and accompanying rythmes, beats, and vocals will take you to the Carribbean, Latin America, Africa, and back home again to the States. The first three tracks are beauty encarnate. The third track makes my soul and spirit soar back to a time of ancient existence, a time when men and women could look into each others eyes, see the essence of the other, and UNDERSTAND what it is they were seeing. This understanding of human essence was also tied to an intense awareness of and respect for the many animate forms surrounding us. This is one of the places Toledo takes me to. Mestizo is the vehicle. Your journey awaits."
