Women Of Latin America ‘Various’ Putumayo

Female voices from Colombia, Chile, Brazil, Peru & Mexico. This fairly laid back collection opens with a new name to me, Marta Gomez from Colombia, with ‘La Ronda’ a gentle Afro-Peruvian influenced rhythm. Also here are tracks from Jacqueline Fuentes, Monica Salmaso, Mariana Montalvo, Tania Libertad, Susana Baca, Lila Downs, Belo Velloso, Lhasa and Toto La Momposina. I especially like Brazilian singer songwriter Adriana Calcanhotto’s ‘Justo Agora’, such a lovely voice. Graham Radley
