Niña Pastori is about to launch
a new record. The singer from the Isla de San Fernando near Cádiz will
release her fourth album, entitled 'María', in March. On the record, which
is released by BMG and produced by the versatile musician and composer Chaboli,
Niña Pastori contributes not only her voice but also her skills as a songwriter
and arranger. The list of those who have contributed to the record also includes
the percussionist Tino di Geraldo, the Jerez guitarist Moraíto, the violinist
Bernardo Parrilla and the dancer Farruquito who, as well as adding the sound of
his dancing, also contributes words and music for the track 'Dulce Canela'.
Niña Pastori returns to action
with'María'. After 'Entre dos puertos' (BMG, 1996), 'Eres luz' (BMG, 1998)
and 'Cañaílla' (Ariola, 2000), María Rosa García presents
her fourth album which bears not only her own personal imprint as a singer, but
also her skills as a writer and arranger. In both these tasks she has worked hand-in-hand
with Chaboli, who has contributed to the album as a producer, songwriter, arranger
Alongside them numerous other people have
added their personal skills to the recording. Manuel Ruiz, Queco, has written
one of the best tracks on the album: 'Amor de San Juan'. The guitarist, writer
and producer, who has worked frequently with other flamenco artists such as Vicente
Amigo, "was aiming to show an important change in the artistic personality
of Niña Pastori", according to sources at the company.
Niña Pastori, whose last album sold
nearly 200,000 copies, has surrounded herself with talented musicians such as
the percussionist Tino di Geraldo, who brings the sound of the drums to songs
like 'Dime quién soy yo', 'Tú dime' and 'El color del agua'. Guitarist
Moraíto accompanies the singer on 'Dulce Canela', along with Diego de Morao,
who also plays on 'El molino'.
One of the most intteresting contributions
to the album is that of the Sevillian dancer Farruquito on 'Dulce canela' where,
as well as the sound of his dancing, he also contributes as a writer together
with Antonio Humanes and Gori Carmona. The violinist Bernardo Parrilla, who forms
part of Tomatito´s sextet, also adds his touch; as do pianist and keyboard
player José María Cortina; guitarists Josemi Carmona, Machuca, and
José Carlos Gómez; the flautist Valentín Álvarez and
the percussionist Luis Dulzaides. The album was recorded last year in the Filigrana
studios in Córdoba and at Sintonía in Madrid.
