CD Review: Paco Pena Flamenco Dance Company

Paco Pena
A Compas! [2 CD]

One of the newest releases from Nimbus, Paco Pena and Company brings us an engaging 2-CD set of flamenco music recorded at a live show. From the inserts, you quickly learn of the musicians and dancers. Yet, it is unfortunate you do not get to watch these talented dancers in action. Though, it allows for the listener to be carried off to their own flamenco paradise. It is not difficult to find yourself dancing a bit when listening to any of Paco Pena's music. Flamenco music is such an emotive and passion-infused form of music that Paco Pena certainly explores with such genuine talent and aesthetic sensibilities. Check out his other recordings from Nimbus. ~ Matthew Forss
