O’s Notes: Pianist Elio Villafranca teams up with percussionist Arturo Stable to produce ten original compositions. Both musicians are drummers and pianists so there is great respect and appreciation for each other. They split the writing duty for this African Diaspora. Igor Arias adds vocals on “Cuba Linda”. The music is fundamentally simple yet full of color and complexity. These are rich conversations with a Cuban accent. We enjoyed listening start to finish.
