The endlessly energetic duo of Oriol Saña and Lluís Gómez have created a charming and informative account of the musical phenomenon we call bluegrass. Originally a quirky supercharged folk music played by about ten people, bluegrass music, with its Mozart-like formality and ferocious rhythmic zest, now describes an extended international family of related string band styles.

Master fiddler Oriol and bluegrass banjoist Lluís, both acclaimed educators, present both the wide view and crucial details about this music in a clear, personable manner. Bravo!

El dúo formado por Oriol Saña y Lluís Gómez, siempre tan activos, se ha puesto manos a la obra una vez más para producir esta brillante obra, amena a la vez que informativa, sobre el fenómeno musical que llamamos bluegrass. En sus inicios, era un estilo folk muy rebuscado y minoritario, pero esa formalidad digna de Mozart y ese ritmo frenético tan característico han conseguido que actualmente abarque una gran familia de estilos musicales en distintos países.

El maestro violinista Oriol y el banjista de bluegrass Lluís, ambos reconocidos profesores, presentan una visión amplia y a la vez detallada sobre esta música, aportando tanto claridad como su punto de vista personal. ¡Bravo!

Incluye acceso a audio en línea.
