Putumayo Presents: España

( 1 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Adam Greenberg
Having put out a series of modern European compilations with high success, Putumayo released España as something of a bridge between the café and lounge cultures embodied by the French and Italian compilations and the dance-centric music featured in the majority of their previous compilations. The album opens with the venerable Peret, a founder of the rhumba Catalan movement, fusing flamenco aesthetics with Barcelona-based rhumbas for a groove style that's now much more widely spread than he'd originally imagined. Gertrudis continues the rhumba flamenco sound, and guitarist Jairo Zavala combines with Calexico to form DePedro, a mix of laid-back guitar and Southwestern ...

All Music Guide - Adam Greenberg
Having put out a series of modern European compilations with high success, Putumayo released España as something of a bridge between the café and lounge cultures embodied by the French and Italian compilations and the dance-centric music featured in the majority of their previous compilations. The album opens with the venerable Peret, a founder of the rhumba Catalan movement, fusing flamenco aesthetics with Barcelona-based rhumbas for a groove style that's now much more widely spread than he'd originally imagined. Gertrudis continues the rhumba flamenco sound, and guitarist Jairo Zavala combines with Calexico to form DePedro, a mix of laid-back guitar and Southwestern horns. After a brief but excellent introspective piece from Burguitos, the album turns to jazz as a fusion element with Calima, a sister group to the bigger and better-known Ojos de Brujo. There's a bit of reggae inherent in Gossos' hit "Corren" (as well as Gecko Turner's entry), and cumbia in El Combolinga's contribution, as well as touches of Portuguese in Uxia's Galician entry. Xabier Lete provides a bit of Basque café music, and the album finishes off with an interesting instrumental number from Aragonians Biella Nuei. The album flows remarkably smoothly here, with nary a note of dissension from the various bands along the course. The music sways and wanders a bit, always keeping a strong rhythmic component, but never working itself into a frenzy. While Spanish music may be characterized traditionally by Andalusian sounds, more modern and urban sounds define the future for Spain's listening audience, and Putumayo does a fine job of collecting those new elements.
