Recently reseñábamos the last work of Irene Aranda and mentioned that apart from his solo album 'Phonophobia'This 2016 had released an album in trio with two other common and beloved musicians on this website. The hurdy-gurdy Germán Diaz and drummer Lucia Martinez. At last we have received a copy of this record called 'Tribes'.
'Tribes' is freedom, improvisation, poetry, music in its purest form. On the cover three roots.
On the inside covers three stones and three rusty metal plates. On the back cover three different tiles.
In the beautiful interior brochure, apart from a laudatory and successful friend text of Yahweh Cavada, three feathers, three leaves, pine cones and also three different pieces of pliers and wrenches, always three appear. However a picture of a bone, a piece of wood and a metal hinge also appears.
Little more can add an inept like me. I think with described words are unnecessary.
'Tribes' is all this and more. It is free jazz, to label, but, most importantly, are three unique and different personalities, geniuses in him, gathered to experiment and seek new frontiers with their instruments and ideas.
There are compositions written as the initial 'Viteri nequit Melodiam' Irene Aranda and final 'Nocte In Montibus' based on the composition '13 Weeks' Germán Díaz but everything else came on stage at the Teatro Principal in Santiago de Compostela on 22 and 23 April 2015.
We were there because they do not enjoy the sound document representing the 'Tribes'.
Each theme has its explanatory title in Latin and so you find as descriptive themes as 'generated by the movement', 'Beware of Dog' 'Drowned in Waters' or 'Quickly, soon the night'.
Just say 'Tribes' is not for everyone but the moment he enters the game will enjoy it as a child.
Postscript: A small souvenir for Inés Portela who is always fighting in musical good causes.
