Review of "Organico" by Xavier P. for RadioIndy!
POSTED BY: xavierpersad POSTED ON: 05 Aug 2007 08:46 PM
“Organico” by El KadySami is an inspiring collection of Latin-folk/world songs. In two words, this CD is remarkably creative! No two songs are alike, offering listeners a refreshing concoction of jazz, folk., African-beat and Latin flavor. Hailing multi-lingual appeal, “Organico” displays some amazing instrumentation, including everything from beautiful jazz pianos and guitars to traditional Latin and African percussion. All of the singers on this CD are exceptionally talented and deliver enchanting performances! “I’ll Show You” serves as insight into El KadySami’s innovative vocal and instrumental arrangements, while introducing a clever lead whistling melody. Moreover, these lyrics are very uplifting and encouraging. Finished with great production, every fan of Latin and World music should give this album a listen!
