Hello! Good Evening! Spain starts the second day of Music from All Countries at Loronix. I'm really proud of this initiative. The feedback received from other websites, emails and word of mouth during this Wednesday was really positive. It is a chance to feedback the great response given by Loronixers to our community and also identifies wonderful and hidden music available everywhere and also makes Loronix stronger and better.
As I spoke about wonderful and hidden music, Spain, our country number 7, delivers a nice example. Let's see.
This is Alfonso Carlos Santisteban - Presenta Bossa '68 (1968), for Sintonia, awesome instrumental music recorded and composed by the Spanish pianist Alfonso Carlos Santisteban. I'm surprised with this album and this musician. You will not find Bossa Nova standards instrumental renditions here, but 12 compositions from Alfonso Carlos Santisteban, accompanied by bass, drums, guitar, trumpet, flute, trombone and percussion. Loronix friends from Spain are invited to share additional information about this great artist. Tracks include:
Alfonso Carlos Santisteban
01 - La Chica de Bahia (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
02 - Melodia para un Hombre Solo (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
03 - Sofisticado (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
04 - Esperar (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
05 - Un Momento Mas (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
06 - Poema 12 (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
07 - Soledad (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
08 - Triste Sabor (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
09 - Carinosamente (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
10 - Delicadeza (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)11 - Siluetas (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
12 - Esta Samba (Alfonso Carlos Santisteban)
When I was looking for a nice image from Spain, I found this one and I could not resist selecting it for our tribute. We have a very similar construction in Rio de Janeiro that was used with the same purpose, water transportation. Spain has a surprisingly strong participation at Loronix, perhaps my friend Zamurozien - Loronixer since day one - and the mighty Mr. B from The Sounds of the 70's are making a nice job promoting Loronix there.
Madrid is the city that delivered most of the visits, 37% among 39 identified cities. I had the chance to make a new friend from Spain with our initiative, I don't know if he agrees to say his name here and he gave several hints about Bossa Nova music at Spain. I hope he gets amazed with Alfonso Carlos Santisteban.
Thanks Loronixers from Spain for the last and the forthcoming year.

This time I only say:
Fantastico album, fantastico Caetano and Zeca- sounds really like a bossa nova album from Brazil- beautiful!
what a treasure
zamurozien on Thursday, 31 May, 2007Thanks a lot zeca. It is for me a great pleasure to promote your wonderful blog. That gives me the opportunity to express my gratefulness by the great moments that I am having listening to all the good music that can be found here.
Spanish people love Brazilian music when they know it (that is the problem). We only have to make this knowledge available to all. In this way, I have to mention two other Spanish blogs where MPB is frequently the protagonist of their comments, and they also promote Loronix:
Sensaciones sonoras (conducted by Mr Pleasant):
Rincón del 45 (conducted by Peleon):
Mr Pleasant and Peleon, a milion of thanks. Muchísimas gracias por vuestro trabajo.
zamurozien on Thursday, 31 May, 2007Zeca, I forgot to mention that the monument in the photograph is the Aqueduct of Segovia, which was built by the Romans, about 2000 years ago! Its conservation is pristine, and until recent the water flowed along its upper channel.
We are plenty of monuments like that. The Alhambra of Granada, Roman Theater in Merida, the Mosque of Cordoba, Gothic Cathedrals everywhere you go (Burgos, León, Salamanca, Sevilla, Valencia, Lleida, ...), christian and arab castles, monasteries, palaces, ...
Iberians, Celts, ancient Greeks, Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Jews, Barbarians, Arabs, ... are the people who inhabited our land, and you can find their tracks in our buildings and culture.
If you come here someday, I will show some of them, only a little selection, and you will be amazed. :-)

Os aquedutos eram feitos já na Roma Imperial há mais de 2000 anos. O nosso no Rio é que é falso porque é de 1750 mais ou menos. O deles na Espanha PROVAVELMENTE é original desde a ocupação romana por lá.
