Susana Pineda plays her original music and arrangements accompanied by her international band. Alongside her co-leader, musical director and drummer, Zach Mondlick, she blends her tropical and South American rhythms with modern jazz. Their album Neotropical, is a musical fusion of the modern and the traditional, the city and the nature, of North and South America.
A Latin, world, fusion, voice and guitar duo that combines two cultures, two backgrounds and two languages, creating one. This exciting project is a collaboration between Susana Pineda & Luis Salcedo in which they explore the frontiers of folk, rock, Latin grooves, as well as the many vibrant colors of jazz.
Here you will find Susana singing four of her favorite Latin American songs in Spanish and Portuguese. "Cravo e Canela" is a Brazilian tune written by Milton Nacimento. This version is arranged and performed by Marcos Silva, also featuring Scott Thompson, Dillon Vado and Zach Mondlick. "Hay Amores" is a Colombian bolero written by Shakira, "Danza Negra" is a Colombian cumbia written by Lucho Bermúdez, and "Chega de Saudade" a classic bossa nova by Tom Jobim.
