Treasures from two of the continent's historic composers, Heitor Villa-Lobos (Brazil) and Agustin Barrios (Paraguay), are feature. The album is complimented by contemporary works of Pablo Ziegler, Paquito d'Rivera and Quique Sinesi, and bookended by two Ivan Lins pieces that he composed, sung and recited. Special guests include, Branford Marsalis, Cyro Baptisto, Hector del Cuerto & others.
