Canto y Cantera

This gem does double duty, paying tribute to late Argentinean singer Mercedes Sosa and reflecting the Latin folk that San Antonio native Vanessa Lively fell in love with while living in the Andes. It's a compelling combination of Chilean and Argentinean composers, folk music on fire with worldly rhythms and a Latin pulse that Lively – now locally based – masters fluidly. Beautifully arranged, too.
