Description
Marta Topferova's instinctive grasp of fado, morna, and flamenco has earned her comparisons to the greats of these genres and has caused reviewers to wax ecstatic. In this fourth outing by the New York–based singer, Topferova's myriad strengths are displayed in such songs as "Dia Lluvioso," "Los Hermanos," and "Ojos Poderosos." Topferova first became enamored of South American music in her native Czechoslovakia. After moving to the U.S. when she was 11, she learned Spanish, taught herself to play the cuatro and guitar, and subsequently became a leading member of the Latin nueva cancion (new song) movement.

"There's just as much of a jazz swing to Topferova's lived-in, emotive vocalizing as there is Latino culture."—All Music Guide

"What leaps out at listeners is her husky, forceful, slightly bluesy voice, an instrument colored with a smoky undercurrent hinting at spirited struggles with world-weariness and seeking consolation for exile in poetic song…. Her lyrics are steeped in the vivid imagery of renowned poets writing in Spanish, notably that of Federico Garcia Lorca and poet-troubadour Atahualpa Yupanqui…. Perhaps Topferova's songs now are best described by the Argentinian word 'huella,' meaning, 'the song you make up as you travel your path.' Topferova's path is one no music lover should miss."—Christian Science Monitor

"Hers is a voice that stops thought, engages intellect through the heart, pours forward emotively."—Sing Out!
