ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
PROVINCES:
This is a newly remastered re-issue of Correo Aereo's debut album, Provinces, re-released in late 2007. The re-issue features remastered audio, an augmented CD booklet in living color; the latest in the life of their debut album, originally released on cassette tape in 1992!


REVIEWS For PROVINCES:

"I loved the Provinces cassette. I had it in my car and when I played it, I was blown away by it; it was really good. I liked [their] arrangements and the way they know what to leave out and what are the bare essentials to make the song, in whatever style they are playing, work. Abel, who plays the harp and the huapanguera as well as sings, is amazing."
-David Hidalgo
Los Lobos

"The tandem of Abel Rocha and Madeleine Sosin have recorded an exceptional cassette that is worth immediate purchase by music lovers and serious consideration for acquisition by a national label. In 38 minutes it demonstrates the couple's extraordinary musical and vocal skills that made their pan-Hispanic music such an instant hit at [1993's] South x Southwest Conference in Austin....

Los Lobos' David Hidalgo has often stated that to play harp extremely well you most often cannot play other instruments. Abel Rocha calls that wisdom into question since his considerable skill on the harp is matched by his flying fingers on quinta huapanguera, guitar and cuatro. His high, affecting vocal attack often soars above Madeleine's lower register, singing in a startling and affecting reversal of traditional male-female harmony.

Madeleine's strong attack on violin is a perfect match for Abel's quinta huapanguera on "Las dos Huastecas," a plea for peace between the musicians of two rival Mexican states (Tamaulipas and Veracruz) to get past their local pride and play music together.... the musical skill of this couple complements the impressive reach of their pan-Hispanic musical repertoire and marks Correo Aéreo as one of the most exciting acoustic ensembles to appear in many years."

CORREO AEREO REVIEWS:

March 14, 2001
"Best Traditional Mexican/Latino Act"
Correo Aereo wins 1st place for "Best Tradional/Latino Act" in Austin Music Awards 2000-2001.

"Their music has sabor. Madeleine is constant and fluid motion. Her hands, her legs, her hips sway. She doesn't shake the maracas, she jerks, snaps, rolls, twirls and spins them. Abel is the counterweight; his relaxed, confident style of playing holds the stage together and makes the music solid. A better pair of performers I've not seen in Austin... or anywhere else. There's a huge difference between good performers and just good musicians. Abel and Madeleine are by far the best of both. Take my advice: skip class, skip work, skip Fuckemos, and even skip Son Yuma if you have to. See Correo Aéreo."
-Manuel Gonzalez
Austin Downtown Arts

"Musically, a Correo Aéreo performance is like stepping through a doorway into another time and place.... Together, their vocal harmonies are locked in carnal embrace, though it's Abel's plaintive cry, sung with an expression that mixes pleasure and pain, that's positively bewitching. As the couple trades longing glances, their
sensual yet buoyant music dances gaily about a gently percussive beat and uplifting melodies. It's hard not to lose yourself completely in the quiet passion of this subtly dramatic music.... Correo Aéreo was conjuring up musical spells...(their) magic was too strong for me. I never had a chance."
-Raoul Hernandez
The Austin Chronicle

"Postcards can be like little maps. I'm not talking about those thoughtless "wish you were here" cards some people send. I'm talking about those carefully written missives which include the most distilled reflections of the sender.... The recipient can savor a time and place distinct from his own, through the muse of a trusted
friend. Cards like this you save to read over and over again. The duo Correo Aéreo (Air Mail) brings the same response."
