Album Notes
The guitar has always been important in folk music and many composers of classical guitar music have been inspired by this. Rhythm plays a vital role in folk music and most rhythms have names. This is a matter of course in South America, where most of the music on this CD originates. A number of these rhythms are to be heard here: joropo, habanera, tango, milonga, candombe and choriño. Some of the works are so often played that no-one dares to touch them any more for fear of lacking originality. Esther Steenbergen though, arranged the works for trio (guitar, bass & percussion), giving them new life and zest. With this cd she introduces her newly formed trio.

Guitarist Esther Steenbergen is equally at home in classical, contemporary and Latin American music. She performs as a soloist with countless ensembles. With the Latin jazz musicians Eric Calmes and Enrique Firpi she formed her own trio, with whom she performs original guitar repertoire as well as pieces written for her and by her.

A composer, arranger and bass player, Eric Calmes (Curaçao) is at home in jazz, fusion, salsa and classical music. His vitality, flexibility, adaptability and talent at putting down the bass line under whatever type of group have made him the favourite bass player for many musicians.

Enrique Firpi (Uruguay) performs internationally and can be heard on countless CD’s.

Eric Vaarzon Morel (The Netherlands) has always combined different musical styles with his own flamenco music and is much in demand.

Roël Calister (Curaçao) is a young percussionist, always searching for musical enrichment and anything to do with percussion instruments.
