dedicate this album to the world. This is my prayer, translated in music, for the suffering of the human race. I want these songs to resound in heaven and bring us back the peace, love and tolerance that we all need. --Edmar Castaneda
Castañeda’s technique is astounding, produc- ing the sound of a piano, steel pan, mandolin, electric guitar and even sitar. With a band that includes a number of New York City jazz greats, he blends folkloric music and free-jazz into a diz- zying whirlwind of sound.
