Cristina Pato - The Galician Connection (2010 Spain) @192

"The Galician Connection" is an intimate, mature and introspective album that reaffirms her successful career as a global artist. Cristina Pato has evolved as a musician and this album shows it.

With collaborations by singer Rosa Cedron (ex-Luar na Lubre, Mike Oldfield), accordion player Victor Prieto and his trio, canadian mezzo soprano Patrice Jegou, Javier Cedron's string quartet, Carlos Beceiro's bouzouki and her band members Laura Amado (voice), David G. Outumuro (percussions), Xan Padron and Raquel Pato. "The Galician Connection" was recorded in New York, Madrid, Galicia and Lisbon; produced by Cristina Pato for Zouma Records the cd includes 12 works composed by Cristina Pato, Victor Prieto, Xan Padrón, Rosa Cedrón and Raquel Pato among others.

In "The Galician Connection" Galician bagpipe and piano connect from contemporary music to jazz…this is the album in which Cristina Pato has opened a new way for the Galician Bagpipe: the synthesis of her classical training and her love for the instrument.

"The Galician Connection" is the beginning of a new step for one of the most international stars of the gaita. A pioneer on the use of the Galician bagpipe as a global instrument, Cristina Pato continues showing the possibilities of her instrument through contemporary music and her own language.

Another very nice posting.
For the record: it's literally impossible to find such material here North America (I doubt HMV has it in its catalog...). Thanks to your blog, it's virtually accessible to everyone, everywhere. :)

Thanks a bunch!!!

Same as it ever was said...

Awesome, thank you so much.
