Costa Rica 2020

Standard

Starting my travels this year in beautiful Costa Rica! First time in this amazing Central American country, but it’s like visiting several places at once. The rainforest is epic, the beaches are spectacular and far up in the mountains at La Paz Waterfalls Resort, the climate actually changes to rain and cold. But the view from our spa was amazing!

Music from Costa Rica – Malpais

Standard

Here’s a nice Wednesday jam. Enjoy!!

World Music - the Music Journey

Malpaís is a band from Costa Rica, active from 1999 til 2011. The music of Malpaís is part of the Costa Rica-contemporary compositions work, called by the band “Costarican new song”. The musicians are trying to relate the concept to the early folk and protest folk tradition of Latin America, mixing musical structures of regional and local folk genres such as calypso and tambito with easy-listening jazz (breaks and progressions) and romantic lyrics inspired in Latin American songwriters in order to be perceived as if they are built on the solid tradition of their musical roots. The group takes its name from the most remote, jungle-cradled beach on the north-Pacific Nicoya Peninsula—the beach at road’s end.

Here is their song “Malpais”
