Listening to this now

Recommended Posts

I found this in a used CD store, bought it just to hear what it was about, and absolutely love it. The  music is a mixture of Azerbaijani and Soviet Russian classical and there isn't much out there quite like it.

And a bit of nostalgia - The original Karnataka  The motherload that split and became Panic Room, The Reasoning, Luna Rossa and of course subsequent incarnations of it's self.

Luciana Elizondo, Quito Gato: Manhã de Carnaval (Luiz Bonfá)

 

That was quite nice and I enjoyed that very much. Interesting how the viola? she plays on the actual fret itself while the guitar is played between the frets.

The instrument she is playing is a viola da gamba, one of the old spanish instruments (mostly lutes)  I like a lot.

cheers .

This are musicians, wow.

Those were my exact thoughts and of course, I always have to search for more when I like something.

They certainly are exceptionally very good!! Lot's of YT videos on them.

Speaking of Spanish.... ;)

 

That was nice, but it's too bad they apparently were only playing for two people (though they did seem to appreciate it and applauded through most of the song)...
