Alchemya. Juan Carmona
Label: World Village
Seldom has an album lived up so well to its name. With each track, crafted with the utmost care and featuring a whole host of superb guest stars, Juan Carmona blends the flamenco music so dear to his heart with flavors of jazz and world music. At times very outward-looking, at times introspective, with Alchemya he brings his art to a new level and paints a bold self-portrait underpinned by rich variety, freedom, the pleasure of new discovery and exceptionally high standards. Carmona truly is an alchemist who has found the philosopherâ€™s stone by focusing on the music alone.
