Flor Bromley Fiesta Global


Croton-on-Hudson resident Flor Bromley creates a Latin fusion extravaganza for los niños with her bilingual sophomore CD, a celebration of the global village. Fiesta Global encourages diversity (and dancing!) with festive sounds from south of the border—Mexican, Columbian, Brazilian, and her native Peruvian— with joyous tracks that echo our welcoming Hudson Valley spirit. "Let's have a party!," she sweetly sings, in both Spanish and English, as a bevy of cheerful children's voices chime in alongside the brass. In "We Came to America," Bromley reminds us of our ancestral or more recent expeditions; though varied in expression, each one of us is equally American: "Every color, race and religion / From every country in the world." Beautiful, upbeat ballads like "Vida" offer some downtime from sure-to-be bouncing children. Eleven tracks, and just as many competent players and participants, offer authentic, multicultural entertainment that is abundantly needed in times like these.
