Carmelita De La Guardia has spent part of several days this month recording new acoustic renditions of her wide-varied repertoire. It’s been several years since her last Enchanting Voice CD was released and she is now showcasing her new presentation style with guitarist Al Anderson. Common to both recordings is their multi-lingual aspect – a unique listening experience from Carmelita’s birth place, education and living locations. We’re planning to fill out the music with additional guitar overlays, bass and percussion. There’s even a trumpet appearance by her husband in the works.
Carmelita has kept at her music and life in spite of challenging health issues. As she says, “This brings me such joy. I have to keep doing it!” Hopefully we’ll all capture that joy and you can share in it when this disc is released.
