My music is a fusion between the national music of my country Ecuador with jazz. I wanted to make an album that rescue my music from the past and give fresh sound. To make all this project work, we choose musicians from different countries of the world, the pianist is from Peru, contrabassist and drummer from United States, Andean instruments from Chile, violinist from Japan, guitarist and bandoneonist from Argentina and voice, harmonica and accordion from Ecuador.
So with this, we are creating a new type of sound, new music and a new proposal to people inside and outside Ecuador. You can visit my web page www.alexandracabanilla.com
