WCMA "World Recording of the Year" Winner 2011. Trio Bembe plays infectious Latin Music from around the world.
The brush of palm leaves, the whispering waves, the salt in the air. You reach the end of the beach, and feel a steady beat. A little closer and you hear the strum of a guitar. Just as you arrive, a voice rings out strong and clear. This isn't a dream. It's Trio Bembe.
Out of the snowy Canadian prairies rises a tropical breeze from a surprising source. Three musicians join, having chased their passion to Cuba, Brazil, and Chile. Trio Bembe's mastery of Latin music drives their audiences into a rhythmic frenzy. Their sophomore album "Oh my soul" invites the listener to discover the Latin spirit cultivated on the Canadian Prairies and carries them on a warm breeze to a place where dance and rhythm rule.
