Latin American folk music by Marta Topferova at Scullers Jazz Club

in

"Marta Topferova’s new album illustrates why The London Times has called her “one of the most graceful interpreters of Latin American folk music". Recorded in Prague after a tour with her New York ensemble, “Trova” (The Troubadour Tradition), is a culmination of Marta’s love of styles such as the Cuban son and Puerto Rican bomba. Comprised of eight original and three traditional pieces, and featuring a stunning array of Cuban tres, four-string cuatro, violin, bass, percussion and tight vocal harmonies, Trova is Marta’s liveliest release to date."
