Building on the success of her Independent Music Award-winning second release Sube Azul, vocalist Sofia Rei returns with the spellbinding De Tierra Y Oro, co-produced by Fabrice Dupont. Rei describes the album as a series of "philosophical wanderings" -- songs that draw on a wide range of South American folkloric influences and bracingly modern sounds, with Rei's powerful voice in the forefront.
As the Argentine singer Sofía Rei led her multinational band, the passion and clarity with which she assayed a tricky mix of South American rhythms and jazz-inflected harmonies made clear why she has been embraced by New York City audiences from Carnegie Hall to the hippest downtown haunts. --Phil Lutz, New York Times
one of the most versatile and in-demand singers on the New York music scene --Simon Calle, All About Jazz
...a potent combination that s like nothing else around --Kevin Convey, Boston Herald
