This is a CD with both ambient and danceable tracks, played with a fusion of flamenco and contemporary concepts. With three guitarists, two on flamenco guitar, the music can transport you to Spain or a mountaintop, with an eclectic mix of airy, ardent, and animated tonality and moods.

Notable tracks:

#2 – L’-Air du Camargue - Composed by Olivier Raughi Ebert and Leo Michael Henrichs. This soulful and exotic piece is driven with scintillating percussion and a lovely repetitive theme. The guitars carry the harmonies with syncopated flamenco rhythms that vividly build in zest and spirit.

#8 – Mighty Days - Composed by Olivier Raughi Ebert and Leo Michael Henrichs. The bass energy is evident on this track with deeply expanding resonance and vibrating musicality. The guitars switch from rhythmic backup to thematic spotlight, with seamless instrumental chords.

#11 – See You In the Bar - Composed by Olivier Raughi Ebert and Leo Michael Henrichs. This rapidly phrased track generates dance heat, with swirling sonorities and a dervish rhythmic repetition. Palmas and percussion blend for the contagious hand-clapping beats with vibrant tonal imagery of flamenco stage and club theatrics.

#13 – Fantasia de Fuego - Composed by Muriel Anderson. Quick stamping flamenco heels and palmas blend here for a fiery rendition of contemporary flamenco. This is the most danceable and fascinating of the tracks, as it’s imbued with the exhilaration and élan of drums, strings, and actual dance effects.
