Spanish jazz sensation Andrea Motis (voice & trumpet) presents "Febrero" together with the classical Chilean ensemble Camerata Papageno, both as an album and in concert.
"Febrero" is a joyful declaration of happiness and love. It celebrates the hot Chilean summer in the month of February, when this album was recorded. The repertoire was selected by the Spanish singer and trumpeter Andrea Motis together with guitarist and arranger Federico Dannemann. The young and dedicated classical Chilean musicians of Camerata Papageno recorded the repertoire alongside Andrea, featuring Christoph Mallinger on violin and mandolin, and Federico Dannemann on guitar.
Most of the music on "Febrero" derives from Chile, Peru and Argentina - complemented by a bit of Broadway and Brazil. Federico Dannemann wrote the arrangements especially for this project and together with Camerata Papageno and the thrilling participation of Christoph Mallinger, Andrea Motis performs at the top of her game. Calm but brilliant of sound and timing. Her voice and trumpet mixed with the wonderful sounding young musicians of Camarata Papageno. Summer vibes! As Ms. Motis notes: “Through the delicate arrangements and how the recording sounds, these songs bring me back to the feeling of calmness and deep joy that we all had together during those summer days in Chile".
