Focusing on the diverse influences on Spanish music, this collection offers a rare (and fairly surprising) view of the music of Spain. The album features the jota from the Balearic islands of the Mediterranean, Galician inspired tunes on the gaita (a Spanish bagpipe), the brassy, yet playful, sounds of the Catalonian sardana which still boasts a strong medieval influence, and the brazen fandango music in which is embedded the smuggling history of this Southern European country.
