About this album

Strunz & Farah - Americas (Release Date - May 12, 1992)

The latest from this dazzling and astonishing guitar duo surpasses 1990’s award-winning Primal Magic with blazing intensity and passion. Their uptempo flamenco sound really vaults way beyond standard fare. Jorge Strunz occupies the left channel, while Ardeshir Farah holds down the right. Visual images abound, conjuring up remote, romantic islands, tropical rainforests and warm, moonlit waters. “Américas” melds the flair, dexterity and cultural roots of their combined Latin American and Middle Eastern heritages with the surrounding septet of tremendous musicians.
