Fareed Haque & KAIA String Quartet – New Latin American Music For Guitar And String Quartet
Delmark DE 5029 (2018)
Guitar virtuoso Fareed Haque and the KAIA String Quartet, a rising star among American chamber ensembles, shine together in pieces by Latin American masters, from Astor Piazzolla to Eduardo Angulo and to Leo Brouwer, from Afro-Cuban to tango, from the Caribbean and Mexico to the Rio de la Plata. This album gives a new flavor to jazz, Latino and chamber music. Fareed Haque’s formidable experience in those genres melds in combination with KAIA’s luxurious sound and the quartet’s devotion to Latin American music blossom together in one of the unmistakable albums of the year.
