If your looking for new music and new sounds then this world music duo is for you. I met flamenco guitarist Albert Alabedra years ago when he was playing around town. I loved his mix of traditional flamenco mixed with other sounds from around the world. I’m so happy that he has recorded a new album and has a new singer and collaborator.
Alba Musik can best be described as flamenco mixed with several music genres like jazz, funk, world music, and Latin rhythms. This mix when put together is otherworldly. I can tell you it will put a big smile on your face. The duo consists of guitarist, composer Albert Alabedra from Barcelona, Spain, and flamenco dancer/singer, Barbara Martinez from our hometown of NYC. They just released their debut album Dawn this past week and I can’t stop listening to it. My favorite songs are “Te Oro” and “Abuela” with their rich flamenco flavor with Latin rhythms thrown in for taste or gusto.
They are playing around NYC so be sure to check them out, you won’t regret it. Support independent music and musicians worldwide. Happy listening!
