A highly regarded singer-songwriter from Cádiz, Javier Ruibal has created a new type of modern music that blends North African sounds with flamenco and other diverse influences. With the richest rhythms and harmony forming the basis of Sahara, Ruibal draws his inspiration from his love of life and beautiful women, resulting in lyrics dripping with fantastic tales and evocative Spanish poems of love. A well-kept secret beyond Spanish borders for far too long, this album is Javier Ruibal's international debut.
**** (four stars) 'A gutsy singer-songwriter and virtuoso guitarist.' The Guardian
