Este-Instante

“Este Instante” (Marta Gómez) The song which gives title to the album.

“Una pena” (Marta Gómez) A beautiful song by Marta, for which I wrote a horn section which we recorded in Barcelona with four incredible players.

“Yacanto” (Marta Gómez) A song dedicated to the town of Yacanto in Argentina.

“Mírame” (Marta Gómez) For this song I wrote a string quartet beautifully played by Maria, Christiana, Lev and Yoed. Listen to the beautiful solo by the great guitarist Juancho Herrera!

“La esperanza canta” (Marta Gómez) This song is a tribute Marta pays to the hard worker women in the country side.

“Manos de mujeres” (Marta Gómez) This is a song Marta already had published in one of her previous albums. For this Cd I wrote a completely different arrangement to it based on the Colombian rhythm of cumbia, and it includes the participation of the amazing voices of Andrea Echeverri (Colombia) and Martirio (Spain), as well as the incredible Israeli clarinetist Anat Cohen.

“Layla” (Marta Gómez) The lyrics of this song are very powerful. It contrasts the lifes of a little girl named Layla, who came to hug Marta after her concerts in the city of Boston, with the one of the Iraqui artist Layla, who died in one of the US bombings over Irak.

“Llévame en tus alas” (Marta Gómez) A hommage to the artesans in Guatemala and Latin America.
