En Aquellos Das
After 12 years of being discontinued, following a limited edition on cassette with reduced circulation in 1998, Darío Cardoso's second album sees the light again in this revamped, remixed and remastered edition on CD. In this piece of work, Darío continues recounting life experiences from his travels throughout the South American continent, by way of a warm and soulful mixture of folk, blues and indigenous music. This reissue on CD, together with restoring and expanding the original cover artwork, also includes five bonus tracks: four of them live performances of songs from his first album, and the fifth a new version of the classic 'Una Vez Más', now accompanied by the youth group TransformARTE. Unlike his first album, which was recorded quickly and without much preparation, this second album was recorded after six months of work composing, arranging and performing the songs together with his established band, allowing a much more elaborate and mature result. This is also evident in the live bonus tracks, recorded during the band's heyday. With styles ranging from the Uruguayan candombe and murga to the Andean folklore and huayno from the highlands of Bolivia, Chile and Peru, together with the Brazilian bossa nova and South American folk and blues, the CD covers a wide musical range. The sale of this CD supports the Faizi and Dr. Muhajir rural schools in the Mapuche area of southern Chile.
