O’s Notes: We welcome the festive Latin ballads of The Bassalindos. Atallah’s voice is pleasant and inviting. The music is upbeat and supports the mood. The addition of brass accents on “Alrededor” makes it pop. It bounces along from song to song, mostly Spanish lyrics that are translated in the liner notes. We liked “Desert Caravan”, the gentle rhythm of “Susurro” and the salsa beat of “Toa, Ya Habibee” with dazzling work on violin from Rabih Yazbek. Well done.
