Hermosa Review de Delfines por Angel Romero de la World Music Central

Impeccable and Graceful Argentine Lyricism from Cecilia Gauna

Cecilia Gauna – Delfines (Cecilia Gauna, 2018)

Delfines (Dolphins) is the fantastic third solo album from the wonderful Argentine vocalist, songwriter, educator and composer Cecilia Gabriela Gauna. She is a highly talented singer with a beautiful multifaceted vocal style.

Cecilia Gauna has a background in polyphonic choirs (Coro Polifónico Nacional, Coro Estable del Teatro Colón de Buenos Aires), early music, zarzuela, rock, jazz and Argentine folk music. She incorporates these and other influences into Delfines. The album features an innovative mix of Argentine folk musical forms, jazz vocal stylings, powerful big band brass, exquisite chamber strings, and lively, diverse percussion.
