Various Artists
The Castilianne

Start with a suave terra séca, a sensual Brazilian lament and follow with a battery of easily danceable Venezuelan waltzes called castilianne that are actually derived from the joropo (a waltz-like musical genre and dance that blends African and European influences). These ultra-smooth, predominantly instrumental, tunes are deceptively complex in their use of cross-rhythms and creole mix of Brazilian, Venezuelan, Portuguese, French, Indonesian, Africans and Spanish elements. This recording features bands led by Johnny Gomez and John Buddy Williams, the Grand Curucaye String Orchestra of Trinidad and the Girl Pat Oildrum Orchestra.
