This is the biggest challenge Rita Payé's career, as it is the first time she writes and composes her own songs, something she has never done in her 9-year career.
It is an album of 11 songs recorded in the prestigious studio of David Casamitjana, technician of the Sant Andreu Jazz Band, and produced by Juan Berbín, a renowned Venezuelan musician who has won a Latin Grammy. Finally, they were fortunate to have the help of Carlos Freitas, who has worked with the likes of Toquinho, Caetano Veloso, Omara Portuondo and Gilberto Gil, in the mastering process.
The sound that emerges is already a trademark: Jazz, Bossa Nova and classical guitar. A mixture that has led mother and daughter to perform in many capitals of the European continent and that, with only one single released, has put them on the radar of both great historical artists and the mainstream world.
Elisabeth Roma has a classical musical background, but she has always been inspired by Latin American music, especially Bossa Nova, including Jobim, Chico Buarke and Elis Regina. In addition to her work as a music educator, she has performed as a classical guitarist for most of her career, both as a soloist and in larger ensembles. Elisabeth has incorporated her ideas of classical guitar into the repertoire she plays with Rita, combining her excellent musicianship and technique with the personal sounds of Rita's melodies and improvisations.
