Cuadernos De La Habana (live)
Brínguez, Roxana; Cuarteto Fénix; Trío Tesis; La Cantoría Coralillo; Flynn, Frank Emilio; Dúo Cachibache; Silva, Manuel Suárez
On this new release Stefan Winter and Mariko Takahashi present their personal, musical highlights from a journey into the heart of Havana. Especially the voice of Hermes FernAndez Salgado from the Trío Tesis, the unusual, touching, glittering musical interaction of the singer Roxana Brínguez with the guitarrist Manuel SuArez Silva, and the heartbreaking Dúo Cachibache wakes up the deep longings to bring alive these songs with a sapphire or diamond stylus on a 180g LP-Vinyl. Mariko Takahashi and Stefan Winter have created a seemingly simple and fascinating poetic treasure box of sounds which they found in the backyards, narrow streets and bars of Havana. The graphic designer Gunter Mattei captured with his colorful illustrations the memorable scenes and key moments from this musical journey in booklets normally used by Cuban people to get butter, bread and other essential things in life. This album — in a gatefold cover — stands out well from the usual styled Cuban releases. With "Cuadernos de La Habana“ the listener can enjoy with closed eyes a journey into a secret world of Havana and discover moving and touching sounds.
