Esencia

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - José A. Estévez
After the breakup of his regular band, Gilberto Santa Rosa still maintained his usual, traditional-cum-romantic style. Esencia, however, is peppered with electronic music to spare, string accompaniments, and a superb ballad "Para Vivir" by the legendary Cuban composer Pablo Milanes; even rap is thrown into the mix ."..Y Eso Duele," with help of rappers Memo and Vale. Unquestionably, Santa Rosa's most eclectic and unusual production to date.
