Del Mar

The sea as inspiration

„Del Mar„ is the group’s second CD. All the original compositions and lyrics were inspired by the sea. The myths, the legends, the tides, the storms, the winds, the romaticism. „Azul“ is a blue sea-storm. In the catchy „Marinerito“, a would-be bride bemoans the young sailor she almost married, before the mermaid got him as her bridegroom... In „Mar adentro“ the singer tells of his dream of the bay of Cadiz. In „Sube la marea“ one hears the tide rising. The only non-original - „La bella Lola“ - is a melancholy interpretation of an old catalan sea-shanty about the beautifull Lola who drove the sailors so crazy that they wished to die in her embrace.

Ambar

Revolutionary handwork

The group’s first CD - „Ambar“ - received the distinction of being featured on the world music sampler CD from EMI Music – „World Music Special“ – which presented „the best sounds of the world“. The CD-notes comment: „Thanks to the outstanding musical handwork and a lot of talent, sounds smooth and classical, but is actually revolutionary.“ (EMI Music 2003)
