El Chulo de la Muerte ,

Timeless romantic music of the caribbean and latin america

This is the kind of music you can just get lost to staring at the cigarette smoke as it vanisheds in the air. The instrumentation is beautiful mixing all the versions you've evver heard of boleros- the insistantly ornamented with guitar arpeggios, the 70's organ muzak, the classical ensemble string section, but un the end it is the singing that makes the bolero- the reoantic longing, the heartbreak, the philosophical approach to the imperfections and the dissapointments of loe. THe duets work nicely, singin in a natiral way that allows the beutiful and poetic lyrics to come thru with their meaning. A bittersweet and nostalgic, yet smart and skillful exercise on a genre that has lost popularity and clarity of purpose over the last few decades, now clearly shinning with a jazzier rediscovered prespective. So sophisticated nad not indulging on the cress sentimentality of current ballads...This is kind of discovering your cool aunt with her martinis and cigarettes and pearls was way ahead of you all along...

Relaxing feel

I love the light accompaniment and stunning vocal harmonies that give this record an exclusive touch! In addition to that, the relaxing feel on the mellow tones of guitar, piano and strings on 'POR SIEMPRE', 'TUS PASOS' and the organ on 'ALMA ADENTRO' make this record a simply wonderful piece of art.

Awesome record for those who love Sylvia, una maravilla para los amantes de Sylvia.

I discovered this record by accident but what a great accident, it was a recommendation after buying ile iLevitable. I love Sylvia Rexach, I grew up listening to her song, they are part of my culture, of growing up in Puerto Rico. But for you lovers of Pink Martini give it a try. I don't even know who was Miramar until I start looking into them after a recommendation for the record. I found this wonderful video of them at the Kennedy Center “Millennium Stage July 6, 2016 – Miramar”. I fell in love with their music. Laura Ann Singh and Rei Alvarez have wonderful voices; we need more from you guys. They are bringing the bolero back in fashion.
