Episode Recaps

This studio-with-audience recording featuring the great Peruvian songstress is a series of intimate passion plays. On tracks like ”Toro Mata,” Baca’s earthy contralto burrows into the gentle rhythmic crosscurrents provided by her band, which features guitarist Marc Ribot and organist John Medeski. Other times, she floats high above the arrangements, a heavenly apparition.
