Madrid, Spain – Spanish folk multi-instrumentalist Eliseo Parra has been keeping himself busy during the past few months, working on various projects, including his next album.
Last May he presented a book with a CD based on the Cervantes romances (ballads) which he included in El Quijote, titled Música en la Ínsula Barataria. Just a few days ago he accompanied Carmen Paris on one of her new tracks to feature in her next album, Jotera lo serás tú.
Eliseo Parra is recording his new solo album which will probably be titled De ayer mañana (From yesterday today) a very Spanish phrase. For this CD Eliseo has included songs from Murcia and La Rioja and a song sung in Basque. Collaborations include Alboka, Josean Goikoetxea and some other surprises.
Eliseo will also be participating on the folk album by Joaquín Díaz, alma mater of the Fundación y Museo (Foundation and Museum).
