Havana, Cuba – Segunda cita (Second date) is the provisional title of the first major music production by Silvio Rodríguez in 2009, which has already ended its recording process in the Ojalá recording studios and which brings together themes composed over the last two years, informed the digital site, Cubadebate.
It has the musical base of an acoustic trio, almost a quartet, said the famous author, who pointed out that he also inserted some guitar there.
Silvio invited Roberto Carcasés, Feliciano Arango, Oliver Valdés, to play the piano, the double bass and the drums, respectively, for the Segunda cita that was recorded by engineer Olimpia Calderón
To this title, which includes rock, ballads, sones and danzones, also contributed as guests the wife of the troubadour, flute and clarinet player Niurka González Núñez, as well as young talents from the national art schools.
San Petersburgo, a song dedicated to Gabriel García Márquez, a bolero to César Portillo de la Luz, a text by Víctor Heredia, which was added music, and a letter to Violeta Parra, in which he tells his opinions and kisses his children, his friends, are all part of the album, declared Silvio.
Sea señora and Tonada del albedrío will be themes that due to their currency and content will also make the new album huge.
Segunda cita is a song about the false angel that we sometimes carry inside, unveiled Rodríguez Domínguez.
