Sol y Canto
The Boston area duo of Rosi and Brian Amador update Latin traditional styles on these covers and originals. They are joined by Alan del Castillo, who contributes vocals and kena (bamboo flute). A lively variety of guest musicians provide piano, bass, congas and percussion. The group's strength is in their mastery of the catalog of Latin styles. They slip naturally from bouncy sons to Tex-Mex bossa nova to their own complex gaita-driven music based on Venezuelan rhythms.
