‘Tucson-Habana’ is the first Amparo Sanchez’ solo album. If the name sounds familiar, that’s thanks of course to Amparanoia, the band that she formed in 1997.
However, in 2008, after more than 1000 concerts and 7 albums spanning 11 years, Amparo decided to change direction and to take on a new challenge as a solo artist. ‘Tucson-Habana’ is quite different from what we had come to expect from Amparanoia, it’s a more personal and original album.
For her first solo album, Amparo Sanchez collaborated with Joey Burns and John Convertino of Calexico, which is easily perceptible. Nevertheless, as always, it is still impossible to classify her music in a definite style. Although… perhaps ‘americana‑cubana’ would be a good attempt…
A bonus will be offered with the digital release. There is a psychedelic song recorded with Mariem Hassan, a Saharan singer that Amparo met in Western Sahara at the end of 2007. The other one, ‘Mujeres sin Miedo’ is also a duet with Tiken Jah Fakoly, the reggae star from Ivory Coast. And ‘Colours from Cuba’ is another song by Calexico.
