Bach vs. Wurlitzer

I decided to work up a Bach Bourrée (BWV 996) as a belated "do what scares you" challenge, since I don't usually try to play classical music. Soon after I learned it, I couldn't stop myself from messing with the groove, adding touches of swing and Cuban rhythms. [more inside]

rabo de nube

Actually this song is not my own. I was just wondering... may I point to a beautiful song by providing my own rendition here ? It was written by Silvio Rodriguez.

Bagel on the Malecon

A very New York-bred outlook at old-time Cuban music, recorded entirely with .. violas! This was my attempt to create asymmetrical but memorable melodies, clear textures crammed with material, and experiment with multitrack viola as a concept, an ensemble. The sound of the classic Cuban bands had all that - except the violas, that is. This track appears on my newly released CD, the VJOLA: WORLD ON FOUR STRINGS
