Encantada

In Filipino-Spanish legend, the ENCANTADA appears from time to time between earthly and heavenly dimensions, in dreams, visions, and heightened states of being. From traditional canciones españolas and Filipino classical folksongs, to German and French art songs, operatic arias, and Jazz-inspired ballads, this debut recording delivers 20 selections of pure vocal delight to express the full breadth of human experience.  A delectable album of songs and arias, this diverse collection in several styles and languages brings the listener into a world of rich emotions, sensuous melodies, with a lyric subtlety and rhythmic precision that excites and enchants.
