Andres Villamil - “Chicaquicha” - OEHMS classics
The music of Colombia is a unique blend of European, African and Native America influences. Guitar virtuoso, Andres Villamil, in his latest, absolutely gorgeous recording, has showcased the compositions of fellow Colombians Jaime Romero, Gentil Montoya, Jose Antonio Morales and others, along with his own original works. Some of the music here is in keeping with the established Spanish tradition of adapting for guitar works that were originally intended for other instruments, but, for me at least, the most interesting compositions are those written specifically for guitar. In Mr. Villamil’s hands both the instrument and the songs come alive.
This combination of wonderful music expertly recorded and performed by a complete master musician makes for a listening experience that’s as close to perfect as it gets. Highly recommended for Latin and world music aficionados, guitar fans and anyone else interested in the unique beauty of Colombian guitar music. 10 out of 10.
