The Argentinian singer and Ethno Jazz author Sofia Rei has captured the hearts of jazz lovers in Riga, New York, London, Spain and in many other places. To do justice to an extraordinary artist, we need an extraordinary work of art. This year is the centenary of the birth of the Chilean singer, songwriter, folklorist, civic activist, poet and artist Violeta Parra. The singer, songwriter and producer Sofia Rei has compiled her new album El Gavilánto to express respect and admiration for the work of Violeta Parra and to interpret music with the imagination and daring characteristic of the departed musician.

A stomping fury rises beneath Sofía Rei’s voice on her version of “Arriba Quemando el Sol”. Ms. Rei’s declamations capture the song’s pride and its lament, while the guitarist Marc Ribot builds a blazing, dystopian billow around her.
