Album Review
Reviewed 2007-06-19 
Flamenco guitar that pays homage to Spain’s Moorish past. Joined by vocals, bass, flutes, percussion. Wonderfully arranged and orchestrated, with a contemporary, sophisticated sound. Many with a symphonic suite construction. Some tracks flow right into the next one so watch for sudden endings. (Reviews marked with = mean it flows into the next track, in case you want to play both.)

1. Short intro of horns, slow guitar, strings. =
*2. Upbeat blend of palmas, strings, vocals. Lush & vibrant. =
*3. Male vox, driving, a nicely rich arrangement.
4. Lots of percussion, mid/upbeat w/a touch of jazz.=
*5. Upbeat w/great guitar work. Palmas, perc, lots of shouting.
*6. Gentle, flowing, atmospheric. Rich No. African sound. Picks up.
7. Chanting, guitar, palmas/feet intricate layers of strings. Mid/up.
8. Relaxed w/vocals then picks up – gets driving.
9. Flute intro, melodic guitar mostly downtempo. Very pretty.
