CD of the Week (3 – 7 May)

Bliss of Heaven: Music of the New World

Irresistible rhythms and a melting pot of melodies, Latin American/Australian pianist and composer, Daniel Rojas reimagine some of Latin America’s best-loved tunes and tangos in his new album for Da Vinci Classics, ‘BLISS OF HEAVEN: Music of the New World’.

A heavenly alchemy of mambo, salsa and Andean folk music fused with classical sensibilities – and exquisitely recorded with the vibrant Baldini Quartet in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The passion of Latin American music is clearly palpable with music you know, but as you’ve never heard it before.

With Piazzolla’s dramatic Libertango, Chucho Valdés’ danceable Mambo Influenciado and the surprising Peruvian title track traced back to the 1600s, Rojas’ long-awaited album of sensitive arrangements and soulful original works is guaranteed to lift your spirits, and leave you desiring more!
