Tiempos Modernos (2010). this is Maruja Muci's third CD. She presents here nine new songs, written by her in an original and daring proposal, qualitatively boosting her musical career. Her themes combine vanguard and tradition, duly mixing Venezuelan popular music with electronic music. Adrian Holtz's magnificent production is the cornerstone of this work, along with his keyboards and programming, fusing perfectly with the Afro-Venezuelan percussions of Diego 'El Negro' Alvarez Muñoz, Alberto Vergara and William Troconis. Solid rhythms and ethereal sounds accompany the guitars of Carlos Camarasa, Adam Ross as well as Holtz's. A surrounding chorus, basic beats and string arrangements make Maruja Muci's voice shine, emphasizing it. A popular version of The Final Countdown by Europe, with a delicate and surprising production of Kurt Uenala and Adrian Holtz, closes as a bonus track, a round work called upon to be a reference for Venezuelan's present day music. This CD's themes, recorded with the latest technology, reflect on personal relationships, censuring loneliness and communication problems brought by modern society, as well as on the claim of freedom as the ultimate human yearning. * 1.
