de ayer mañana (World Village)
Eliseo Parra has been rewriting the folk music of Spain for a long time now, imbuing the folklore and traditions of the Iberian Peninsula, the forgotten lore and ancient music, and revitalizing it with his own special sense of modernity. He sings in Castilian, Catalan, Galician and Basque on de ayer maņana (from yesterday, tomorrow), joined by stellar musicians including members of Alboka and Josean Goikoetxea. This is a blend of art-music, folk, jazz and pop/world music.
Also of note, it is an interesting package, a nice paper gatefold with a separate insert for each song's lyrics and nice graphics.
