LO QUE DICE MI CANTAR (What My Singing Says) is a walk through places and time with some of Trova's founding legends. From Lorenzo Hierrezuelo's energetic "Vendedor de Agua" and Pepe Sanchez's "Tristezas" (the very first Cuban bolero) to the somber "Esta Vez Toco Perder" (popularized by the legendary Maria Teresa Vera), these passionate performances honor the venerable Cuban Trova tradition and speak directly to our modern heart. The soaring vocal harmonies of Trio Palabras vocalists Vania Martinez and Liane Pérez, with the nuanced yet bold guitar accompaniment of Nubia González along with a wealth of some of Cuba's finest instrumentalists, combine to sweep us away, and if only for a few moments, provide a brief respite for the soul in this hectic world.

The musicians were all playing at the same time in a studio live room, so the natural balance you hear is what the artists intended.
