The Blue Planet was conceived by Holly Avila from her roots in American folk music, both contemporary and traditional. She met an accordion player extraordinare, Ralph Romano, a seasoned professional from the Catskills circuit, and gave him cd's of Mexican and Colombian music to inspire his sound to fit her vision. She had also met a Peruvian musician at an Andean festival, and invited him to add his instrumentation to the mix to create her totally unique combination of Central and South American influences. With the drumming and percussion from Ed Hudak, who she had known for quite a while, you have the incredibly rhythmic and melodically lovely sound that the Blue Planet has created. As a perfect finishing touch, Ian Kirk brings his North American blues and jazz influence on the electric guitar, making the essential final statement of Pan American fusion.
