The BEST Mother's Day gift - according to my Mom!
I previously bought the classical guitar buy Carlos Munhoz and I knew that my mother would love his music as well. Having music in our blood I knew that she would appreciate the flow and ease of Carlos' guitar and the way the music makes you feel. I sent her the Spirit Dance for Mother's Day (she lives far) and she loves it!!! She heard my classical guitar playing in the background when she called me and insisted I send it to her... so I guess she wins! I will buy her all of the CD's as side gifts for Birthday's and Holiday's and I think that's what she will look forward to. I love the music and think that Calos Munhoz is a talented musician and now I have my mom to agree with me!
