World renowned Paraguayan classical guitarist Berta Rojas has a wonderful new CD entitled Salsa Roja. I don’t know enough to produce a competent review of the CD so I will borrow her promotional material (below). It is well worth a listen and purchase. You can hear a sample of the music at http://www.bertarojas.com/es/. It can also be found on ITunes.
“The CD, which borrows its name from a sultry dance with origins in Cuba, comprises 12 compositions that highlight the rhythms and sounds of Latin America, one of the most musically diverse regions of the world. Some of the composers featured on the CD include British guitarist Vincent Lindsey-Clark, Argentine Quique Sinesi and Julio César Oliva of Mexico.”
