Of course as soon as I finished writing my last post my dad came in and told me the CD is now up on CD Baby. Finally! So here is the official press release. If you’re interested in buying a copy this is the link: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/ShawnaDarrellKastin
Also, I just updated my myspace page. My god! You don’t go on a website for a few months and everything changes. And, of course, it was practically impossible to figure out where anything was/how to do anything. Egad! I swear they do these things just to torture me…
Mar Português – Portuguese Sea
A Tribute to the poetry of Florbela Espanca & Fernando Pessoa
Darrell Kastin’s original music is inspired by the many folk traditions of Portugal and the Azores, the land of his heritage, and by the words of the great poets of Lusitania. Shawna’s mature interpretations and luscious, jazz-flavored voice compliment and seduce the listener in these poem-songs.
The father-daughter duo traveled to Lisbon last May to work on the project with legendary Portuguese artist/producer Pedro Barroso and his accomplished musicians. The album was recorded in a marathon week session at Tcha-Tcha-Tcha Studios.
