The world music duo Correo Aereo made up of Abel Rocha & Madeleine Sosin performs traditional music of Venezuela, Mexico, Argentina, and Peru. Here's what others have said about this CD:


RECORD REVIEWS
Correo Aereo
'Lo Que Me Dijo El Viento'

"This is what the wind told me, starting with the acoustic insistence of Abel Rocha's "Cuatrapeado" and heart-tugging vulnerabilty of "Golpes Tocuyanos" to the sawing, strumming "El Caimán" and delicately dancing beauty of "Carnaval." Rocha and Madeline Sosin's embrace on the tragic "La Mariquita," the funereal beat of Rocha's "De Mis Memorias," and lastly, the playful strum and teasing palmas handshake of "Camaguán." Lo Que Me Dijo El Viento. This is what the wind told me."

Raoul Hernandez
Austin American-Statesman

"I liked [their] arrangements and the way they know what to leave out and what are the bare essentials to make the song, in whatever style they are playing, work. Abel, who plays the harp and the huapanguera as well as sings, is amazing."
-David Hidalgo
Los Lobos

"Remarkable fact is that Abel's compositions Cuatrapeado and the very moving De Mis Memorias blend so well with the traditionals.... Traditional and contemporary at the same time, but most of all beautiful, very beautiful."
-Marc Nolis
RootsTown Music Review, BELGIUM

"Within the first three of the 15 songs on the CD this duo's dexterity shines through. In "Cuatrapeado,'' Rocha's guitar builds in an ever fuller and faster crescendo for nearly two minutes before his reedy voice slides in, backed by Sosin's sultry vocals, gradually upping the dramatic tension until the end. Switching mood and tempo in "Pena Huasteca,'' the duo blend their voices together over Sosin's plaintive violin, Rocha playing a supporting rhythm with his guitar. Then, with the traditional upbeat but minor-key Venezuelan tune "Fiesta Lllanera,'' it's instrumental virtuoso time for the duo, Sosin's maracas providing a rhythmic velvet background for Rocha's rapid yet lush harp playing.'

'It's that blend of contrasts that makes "Lo Que Me Dijo El Viento'' a jewel. "
-Jeanne Claire Van Ryzin
Austin American-Statesman

Amazing music
A couple of years ago I heard Correo Aereo live at the cross roads mall in Bellevue,WA. The music was amazing and unlike any other I had heard before. It was a wonderful musical journey through different countries of Latin America.
Listening to this CD is an equally great musical listening experience.

Elizabeth Arana

I've listened to this CD about 100 times in the month I've had it, and it's still the only CD I want to listen to. There's lots of variety, and every track is a gem.

Correo Aereo Lo Que Me Dijo El Viento
I heard Correo Aereo in Olympia a couple weeks ago and couldn't wait to purchase this CD. I was so amazed when I got it and listened, that it was so moving and fluid and energetic, just like Correo Aereo in person. What a special music gift to me ! Thank you.

love the music
we heard Correo Aereo playing at our local farmers market and really, really enjoy owning the cd. The music manages to soothe, yet still be complex and interesting.
