Album Melodías del Instante - Constanza Guzmán - GAM Music

New Release! – Melodías del Instante

Chilean world music vocalist Constanza Guzmán’s warm and charismatic voice will give you goosebumps... She navigates from the low to the high notes with a disconcerting ease and naturalness.
In her new album "Melodías del Instante", she presents her own compositions, arranged by the virtuoso accordionist Tuur Florizoone, they are joined by Victor da Costa and Stephan Pougin to form an interactive quartet.
One is immersed in a universe where Constanza translates her artistic quest as a woman songwriter, and her militant attachment to "beauty" with themes that are dear to her such as nature, exile, the invisible, and love.
