Hello! Good Evening! Spain starts the second day of Music from All Countries at Loronix. I’m really proud of this initiative. The feedback received from other websites, emails and word of mouth during this Wednesday was really positive. It is a chance to feedback the great response given by Loronixers to our community and also identifies wonderful and hidden music available everywhere and also makes Loronix stronger and better.
As I spoke about wonderful and hidden music, Spain, our country number 7, delivers a nice example. Let’s see.
This is Alfonso Carlos Santisteban – Presenta Bossa ’68 (1968), for Sintonia, awesome instrumental music recorded and composed by the Spanish pianist Alfonso Carlos Santisteban. I’m surprised with this album and this musician. You will not find Bossa Nova standards instrumental renditions here, but 12 compositions from Alfonso Carlos Santisteban, accompanied by bass, drums, guitar, trumpet, flute, trombone and percussion. Loronix friends from Spain are invited to share additional information about this great artist. Tracks include:
01 – La Chica de Bahia (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
02 – Melodia para un Hombre Solo (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
03 – Sofisticado (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
04 – Esperar (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
05 – Un Momento Mas (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
06 – Poema 12 (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
07 – Soledad (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
08 – Triste Sabor (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
09 – Carinosamente (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
10 – Delicadeza (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
11 – Siluetas (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
12 – Esta Samba (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
When I was looking for a nice image from Spain, I found this one and I could not resist selecting it for our tribute. We have a very similar construction in Rio de Janeiro that was used with the same purpose, water transportation. Spain has a surprisingly strong participation at Loronix, perhaps my friend Zamurozien – Loronixer since day one – and the mighty Mr. B from The Sounds of the 70’s are making a nice job promoting Loronix there.
Madrid is the city that delivered most of the visits, 37% among 39 identified cities. I had the chance to make a new friend from Spain with our initiative, I don’t know if he agrees to say his name here and he gave several hints about Bossa Nova music at Spain. I hope he gets amazed with Alfonso Carlos Santisteban.
Thanks Loronixers from Spain for the last and the forthcoming year.
