Album Notes
Go to Insignia Records (www.insigniarecords.com) to find out about Leonor\'s latest CD release \"Talisman\" or the \"Embrace the World\" compilation CD featuring Leonor, Lin Cheng, Farzad and KC Porter!

Leonor Dely - \"Ámame\"

\"... an explosion of sound in the purest of voices with a heart plucking acoustic guitar driven by drumming from many cultures, all supported by the soaring lyrics of other-worldly inspiration. have your heart and soul touched while your body dances along.\" - tom lysaght, playwright

 \"A solid mix of African and Afro-Latin American folk rhythms and musics\" \"...maybe one of KC Porter\'s finest recordings\"
Enrique Lopetegui - LA Times

Leonor Dely, one of Colombia\'s finest singer/songwriters presents a classic, inspiring collection of rhythmic songs and music combined gracefully with the Hidden Words of Bahá\'u\'lláh.

\"Amame\" showcases the powerful vocals of the renowned Colombian voaclist, Leonor Dely, as well as the ethnic, Afro-Colombian master of percussion, Millero Congo, some of Colombia\'s and the Caribbean\'s most versatile and resourceful percussionists and musicians: Istvan Dely, Hungarian born, Cuban and West African trained jazz percussionist living in Colombia, Shangó Dely, renowned percussionist with Colombian superstar Carlos Vives\' band (also the album producer) and David Dely, percussionist and a master of the Colombian Native American flutes. Other members of the Vives band are featured as well.

Each of the songs is a little gem with its own unique and distinctive Latin rhythm, like landmarks on a musical map of Colombia and the Caribbean, ranging from Afro-colombian cumbia, porro and currulao to huapango and cueca of the Andes, bambuco and pasillo of the interior, pasaje of the plains; from Afro-cuban batas, guajira, bolero and pilón to Haitian yanvalou, giving the album a musical diversity nearly as rich as the words contained within it.

The executive producer of this album is KC Porter, known for his production work on Carlos Santana\'s Grammy® award winning CD \"Supernatural\", Ricky Martin, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Ozomatli, Eliades Ochoa and many others.

The freshness, authenticity and spiritual vitality of \"Amame\" (Love Me, the title of the album) will surely find its way to the hearts of those who cherish the preservation of cultural diversity in the global village of the next millenium.

to write a review


It made me want to study Spanish
Beautiful music that seemed to take me all over the world. One suggestion I would make is to include the words with the CD but then maybe it's better to make people look them up themselves. I wish I spoke Spanish so I could have the added magic of the Holy Words plus the beautiful music.


This is 100% Colombian music and talent. Thank you Leonor. You have done a wonde
A Baha'i friend of mine brought this CD to my home, where I was facilitating a Spanish Baha'i Study Circle. I felt so proud to listen to Leonor. I am a Baha'i and I am from Colombia but I live now in Canada. There is so much talent in our country and our cultural and musical heritage is so great! I am happy because the world may know through Leonor's work that Colombia is not only about war and drugs. That is just what they hear on the media. But if they research and study a little bit they will discover a country with extremely talented, creative, passionate and friendly people... a country with amazing natural resources and one of the biggest bio-diviersities in the world. We have a lot to offer to the world. Our music is a mixture, just as we are. Did you know that 99% of the population of Colombia is mixed (Indigenous, European, African)? That is our race, our culture and our music. It is not any more just Indigenous or European or African. We are that mix and the music you hear in this CD is 100% Colombian. Just like the music of Shakira, Carlos Vives and Joe Arroyo. Or the art of Fernando Botero and Alejandro Obregon. Or the literature of Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Alvaro Mutis. Thank you Leonor. In this CD, Leonor's talent, combined with our Colombian music and the Baha'i Writings are the most powerful and sublime sounds... are a channel to happiness and God.


Amame is amazing!
Heart to heart love beats with spirit, professionalism, art, and pure grace. No prose gets close to describing the effect this music has on its listeners. Leonor loves us through her urgent song and our foundation is remade with joy.

Heart felt vocals, wonderfull percussive rhythms
I love this group. Great variety of rhythms. Complex
and tastefull percussion with vocals that have an uplifting
spirit in them.

Amame y la Tabla de Ahmad son mis canciones favoritas. Ahora me la paso cantando las palabras ocultas de Baha'u'llah, en cuanto Talisman salga yo lo compro!

Deberian venir a Nueva Zelandia y dar un concierto!

Tom Conelli

"A musical masterpiece throughout!" - NY Times

A wonderful reminder of humanity's diversity and artistic abilities!
This CD is a wonderful compilation of Baha'u'llah's Words put to song. It is a refreshing and inspirational compilation. I've had the CD on repeat in my home since it arrived in the mail a week ago! :) Thank you.


This song has gone around the world and back. Love me, that I may love thee. The essence of the Hidden Words. Is there anything more beautiful as a request from the Creator. Sounds are mortal but the words are immortal. The drum beats remind us to wake up and be alive. Loving is an essential part of living, and with Leonara and Istvan, your day is off to a kickstart. Melodies that soothe the heart when sorrowful and give hope. For Life is worth Living when there is love. You show and give so much of it. It is in the beat of your hearts, your rhythms, your eyes and your hand beating on the drum. The voice is an echo of the soul. Singing the Hidden Words is an awakening, an enlightenment and a reminder of our Creator. It does good to hear the music spelled out in musical notes and the Mother's continent's rhythms. Keep us all alert and enthralled and swaying. Mystical and invigorating! Life doesn't sleep when Leonor sings and Istvan plays.. A spiritual awakening!
