KAWEH – LIVE IN SAN FRANCISCO CD/DVD COMBO RELEASEAdded to the calendar on Friday Jul 11th, 2008 11:44 AM
The long anticipated live album with an international all star line up of musicians and dancers has come to fruition with an added live multi camera DVD.
San Francisco, Ca - Fans from all walks of life, at every show ask, “what album is that song on?” “When will it be released?” Songs like “Marina” by Rocco Granata, “Parla Piu Piano” (from the movie “Godfather” by Nino Rotta), Cumbanchero (Rafael Hernandez) and Cancion del Mariachi (from the movie “Desperado” by Cesar Rosas), have long been anticipated.
Seven years and four albums have passed since Kaweh released a vocal track. The upcoming live release has Kaweh singing in Spanish and Italian as he captivates the audience with his fast rasgueado. His combination of picado, western picking and sweet melodies leave people humming after the concert.
Internationally acclaimed Belly Dancer “Sandra” and Israely educator and percussionist Dror Sinai, mesmerize the audience with a one of a kind performance as KAWEH opens the concert with “Persia” from the “Play Spanish” album. Sandra and Dror return mid set to give yet another mystifying performance of the songs “Sahhra” and “Play Spanish,” which moves the audience to chant.
The international all star line up of musicians include MACSA Latino Hall of Fame nominee, congero, Edgardo Cambon from Uruguay who gives a fiery performance on “Cumbanchero” and vocalist/guitarist Kenia Rodriguez from Havana Cuba who sings the group’s new vocal track “Guajira”.
Latin drummer/percussionist Louie Flores Jr. and bassist Mark Kraft from Morgan Hill, Ca celebrate their 5th year performing with KAWEH. Their diverse rhythms can best be described as Rumba Flamenca, Mediterranean & Latin. Acclaimed Flamenco dancers Kerensa Demars, Fanny Ara, Stephanie Narvaez and Melissa Cruz join the group on their 2008 tour.
