Sol y Canto is Rosi and Brian Amador, backed by a group of extraordinary players, including Nando Michelin (piano), Jorge Roeder (contrabass) and Bernardo Monk (saxophone, flute). The act's sound is acoustic and Latin roots-oriented. Its taste is elemental, and the results are unfailingly inspiring. The Amadors and their cohorts bring a tremendous virtuosity to their music —cue up "La llorona" (The Weeping Woman) and listen to Rosi Amador sing. Her interpretation of this classic folk tune is wonderfully evocative. The magic continues with another elegant arrangement and Rosi Amador's angelic voice in "Hasta la Luna"—a song Brian Amador wrote for his daughters. In a more uptempo groove, note the act's persuasive take on the Cuban bolero/cha cha cha number "Obsesión."
