Sol y Canto, winners of Boston Magazine's 1996 Best of Boston award and the 1995 Boston Music Award for Outstanding Latin Act, brings a new and exciting exuberance to the Latin music world. Sendero del Sol finds the band remaining true to the Latin American roots music they so gorgeously explored on their Rounder debut, while also paying tribute to the genre's African and Iberian sources. The album begins with a reunion of the Cuban and flamenco rumbas, and journeys through the Caribbean, Brazil and Argentina. Alongside churning Afro-Latin dance rhythms are a tango, a fresh arrangement of the classic 'En mi Viejo San Jaun,' some haunting ballads, and a contemporary flamenco bulerias, powerful instrumental arrangements, tight vocal harmonies, Rosi's soaring lead vocals, and an emphasis on the Spanish guitar contribute to the distinctive sound of Sol y Canto. Produced by Latin jazz innovator Danilo Perez, this recording features guest appearances by sax phenomenon David Sanchez and funky world rhythm guru Bob Moses, among other, in a celebration of the irrepressible energy that is Latin music.
