ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Graciela Flores and Ruben Soifer (irish flute, tin whistle, recorder, crumhorn, lute, jew’s arp) began with "Tocando el Aire" in 2001. In October 2003 they where awarded by Revista Celtica (Celtic Magazine, Italy) including one of his recordings in the CD which accompanied the Italian edition. Since then Luis Orias Diz (guitar, lute), Mariano Gora (derbake, udu, bodhran, box and other percussions) and Maru Aponte (vocals) gathered the group.
Their CD "En el Bosque sin Retorno" (In the Forest of no Return) was considered the best celtic CD of 2004 in the Spanish website Iregua; and two tracks of it were included in the compilation CD issued by Revista Irlanda in May 2005.
For long years Ruben has been playing medieval and renaissance music whit period instruments, recording three CDs. He has performed in the most important theatres of Argentina, and toured to France, Holland, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, Mexico, Brazil, Germany, Panama, Venezuela, Uruguay and Guatemala.
As we read in an Arthurian Legend, riding through the forest Merlin’s disciple Guineban ran into a group of young men and women dancing in the woods. Whishing to impress one of the ladies, Guineban tested his magic: the youngsters would keep dancing forever until the best knight of all times arrived to free them. Since then, it was a called The Forest of no Return. Do you dare visit it?

IRLANDA Magazine No 1 / May-June 2005

With Tocando el Aire Ireland meets Argentine and with surprising results
Tocando el Aire:
The pleasant flame of Belfast fires on Buenos Aires.
With Tocando el Aire Ireland meets Argentine and with surprising results. It is testified by two traditional themes chosen for our “burning” compilation: the first one is Red Haired Boy (2'13”); the second one is Belfast Hornpipe (3'45”). Both tracks belong to the album “En el Bosque sin Retorno” .In 2004 this record won the best Celtic Music Album prize in a competition organized by an internet site placing itself before Carlos Nunez. The atmospheres of “En el Bosque sin Retorno” tried to join the sounds with a kind of walk through the enchanted wood of the Celtic Music. The effect of this walk is so captivating that one wishes not to come back to the civilization (it is important to understand the title in this sense “En el Bosque sin Retorno”).

Red Haired Boy tells an imitator of Peter Pan and of his red hairs that reflect the fire of a friendly madness. Belfast Hornpipe changes in an emblem of joy the fire coming from Belfast.

It's a magical forest!
I bought this CD when I listened for the first time "Tocando el Aire" at Belgrano's Auditorium (Buenos Aires, Argentina). I like it very much and I enjoy listenig to it whit my little daughter.

Roads of Music (Caminos de Musica)

Daydream’s land
Woodwinds’ music flow gladdens immediately the atmosphere everywhere it is being listened. This CD is a sample of this feeling. And partcularly Celtic music keeps you out of everiday’s life and send you to a world of colorfull legends. These traditional music from Galice, Ireland and England gives us the pleasure of remote times. Nevertheless the fact that a band like this plays them with some much life, brings us the past into the present and it’s only a matter of geographical distance which separates our lands from the places where these rythms are nowadays dance. Tocando el Aire happens to take us to so different places from our south. Their warm performances, played by superb musicians, link magically those remote times with ours, and in a very happy dance we may let ourselves dream as we were children in an open forest which opens to be explored.C.I.
