Recorded in 2007, Sola contains a repertoire for flute mostly composed by Omar Acosta where, alone or with such Sui generis formations as flute and voice, flute and “cajón” or flute and “tinajas”, among others, we enter a personal world with very special flavors and seasonings.
This album is dedicated specifically to the transverse flute, a daring work where most of the songs are solo flute pieces composed by Omar.
It also has some special guests who give this album an intimate touch but full of surprises.
Diego Alvarez, also known as “El Negro”, accompanies him in “Fantasía por Seguiriya”, a theme based on the flamenco genre or “palo” called “Seguiriya” where the timbres and the virtuosity of both are mixed, leaving space for a spectacular single of “cajón by “El Negro”.
In the theme “Africando” invites Nestor Guitierrez “El Chivo” where 5 flutes and 6 African percussions are combined.
In “Merengue Jhaptal” invites Carlos Franco in the tinaja, to make a duet inspired by the Japtal Hindu rhythm and the Venezuelan merengue.
In “El Ave María de Bach / Gounod is invited the singer Carolina Prieto where we can listen to a very original version for flute and voice; also, we can listen to this duo in the popular Catalan song “El canto de los pájaros”
