Lazos sobre el Atlántico
JSM Guitar Records, 2018
“Lazos sobre el Atlántico” is born from the bond that links the Canary Islands with the continents that surround it: Africa, America and Europe. As a cornerstone, given its location in the Atlantic Ocean, the archipielago has been nourished by a broad cultural spectrum. The so-called tri-continental nature of the islands has inspired this project that awakens and evokes feelings through the music emanating from the strings of the guitar in a journey through the works of authors from Spain and Latin America.
