Music From the Wine Lands CD, Import
Its undeniable that wine and music complement one another. This CD illuminates this fact with songs from wine producing nations around the world. The tasting starts in Europe with the French singer-songwriter Pauline Croze, whose contemporary chanson gives a modern twist to the vintage genre. Vinicio Capossela and Gianmaria Testa prove that Italys appreciation for the fine arts extends to song weaving as well as winemaking. Spains Amparanoia sings about a love paradox that could apply to drinking wine as well. Portugals Jorge Fernando provides the perfect soundtrack for a glass of his countrys famous port wine. Though now living in exile in France, Chiles Mariana Montalvo and her music have remained steadfastly rooted to the land where Bordeaux grapes thrived in the 19th Century. Argentinas Melingo offers as much variety in his music as his country does in its vineyards. On the opposite side of the world, the sunny locales of South Africa and Australia offered the British an alternative wine source during World War I and II. South African guitarist David Hewitt became known for his blends of classical and jazz music with African-inspired rhythms and melodies. Fellow guitarist Aaron Hopper collaborates with vocalist Kacey Patrick to form the group Stringmansassy for Australias contribution to the wine list. Californias Alison Brown and Greeces Vicky Moscholiou round out this robust collection of songs.
