SE LLAMA SABROSO (They Call it Tasty) by Zona Franka (a zona franca is a duty-free port) is an exciting introduction of a style called "Changüí con flow", a fusion of traditional rural changüí with rap and other urban Cuban music. As the name of the group implies, various musical styles from around the Americas are also featured. The songs are Cuban classics re-imagined in fresh, clever and innovative new arrangements that far differ from the original versions.
Beyond Salsa Piano is a history and anthology of the role of the piano in the Cuban rhythm section – from its first appearance to the present. In a broader sense, it’s a study of the tumbao – the art of creating music from layers of repeating rhythmic and melodic phrases. Whether these syncopated figures are called tumbaos, guajeos, montunos, riffs or vamps, this Afro-Cuban concept lies at the heart of nearly every popular music genre from salsa to rock , funk, R&B, hiphop and jazz.

While presented as a set of method books, the series doubles as a history course and record collecting guide for listeners, dancers, and players of instruments other than the piano.

Perhaps the most important goal of the series is to provide a comprehensive understanding of how tumbaos are constructed, their central role in the texture of Latin music of all eras, and the endless possibilities they provide for creative composing and arranging.

The tango is Argentina's gift to the world offering an alluring mix of song and dance. With Tango Project Vol. 2 New-Tango, Mr. Wilensky has created a sumptuous album with an all-star cast. Ms. Pugliese is the granddaughter of the famous Osvaldo Pugliese and has performed in the National Geographic Society film about the Pugliese Dynasty. Mr. Linetzky is one of the most important tango artists of the new generation contributing his unique style and approach. Mr. Romeo brings an electronic influence to the tango with his synthesizers and electro-acoustic media, piano, harmony and composition background while Maestro Federico is one of the greatest large accordion players in the history of music.

With songs such as "Sentimentios", "Compadre", and "Chocolate", the listener receives a true treasure of modern day electronic tango music. All thirteen tangos are composed by the legendary Jaime Wilensky.

"We released Tango Project featuring Horacio Ravera Vol.1 to critical acclaim and thought that an electrified, modern tango collection would be a great follow-up," said Caliente Entertainment President Maria Zenoz.
