Cubadisco Award for Cancionistica Category!
With the album Lo Que Dice Mi Cantar, which was nominated in the category of Cancionística and produced by Jim Laurel from the Muxia Music label, the Palabras Trio won a Cubadisco award, the biggest event in Cuban discography.
Emerging in the 19th century, trova is the first expression of popular lyrical art in Cuban song and one of the principal roots of the great Cuban musical tradition. For over a century, trovadores (troubadours) have set poetry to music with extraordinary sensitivity and imagination that continues to amaze with soulful elegance and poetic flight.
LO QUE DICE MI CANTAR (What My Singing Says) is a walk through places and time with some of Trovas founding legends. From Lorenzo Hierrezuelos energetic Vendedor de Agua and Pepe Sanchezs Tristezas (the very first Cuban bolero) to the somber Esta Vez Toco Perder (popularized by the legendary Maria Teresa Vera), these passionate performances honor the venerable Cuban Trova tradition and speak directly to our modern heart.
The soaring vocal harmonies of Trio Palabras vocalists Vania Martinez and Liane Pérez, with the nuanced yet bold guitar accompaniment of Nubia González along with a wealth of some of Cubas finest instrumentalists, combine to sweep us away, and if only for a few moments, provide a brief respite for the soul in this hectic world.
