Songs from a Little Blue House

Songs from a Little Blue House

by Juan-Carlos Formell

CD

Overview

Traditional acoustic forms ("Agua Dulce"), lyrics which both reveal and draw the listener to deeper exploration ("Flores"), involving percussion, and a deft touch on the guitar ("Pajarillo") make Juan Carlos Formell's major label debut a perfect accompaniment for summer. Don't let the laid back tropical style fool you, though -- despite being the son of one of Cuba's most famous musician, Juan Formell of Los Van Van, Juan Carlos wasn't allowed to make this sort of music in Cuba. He fled to the U.S. and played for tips at New York city subway stops until Paddy Moloney of the Chieftains signed him to record.
