    I have it and it is good

    Stylistically it does not differ that much from 'Mundo Flotante' (which I also loved); canteburish, RIO-ish with many world music influences. The main difference is that the new album has a much stronger band and live-feel.
    Highly recommended!

    Got it yesterday.I like it.Fine playing, generally interesting compositions, many with a near eastern /arabic tinge.I'd never heard Ontalva's music before this, either solo or group.

    Recommended.

    Angel Ontalva just released a live album "the Tierra Quemeda Ensemble Live at the Dom".
    It features tunes from Tierra Quemeda an one tune from Mundo Flotante. Its the only time these songs were performed live.

    Its a wonderful recording with a great group of musicians. My only criticism is that it is too short. Well worth a couple of bucks imho.
