Title: Flor Nocturna [Import]
Marta Topferova (vocals, cuatro), Jenny Scheinman (violin), Erik Friedlander (cello)
Yulia Musayelyan (flute, background vocals), Adam Cruz (marimba)
Pedro Giraudo (acoustic bass, background vocals), Franco Pinna (bombo, shaker, percussion).
Vocalist and composer Marta Topferova use Andean-based melodies and other Central and South American folklore as a starting point for her urbane reinterpretation. She mixes the Spanish Caribbean, American jazz, European cabaret and (since it is her place of origin) Slavic melancholy. On this recording she is backed by a wonderful all-acoustic ensemble of cuatro, guitar, flute, cello, marimba, squeezebox and percussion for a sound that, like her previous recording, is completely unique and personal.
