Will Brahm – Madrid (Video)

“Nowadays it is quiet easy for anyone to listen ethnic music with just a tap on a button but when you hear on Madrid you will not just hear Peruvian sounds and rhythms but a more personal interpretation on such melodies with an acoustic ensemble”


Will Brahm said about this song “This composition of mine channels the sounds and rhythms from Peru, bringing the spirit of a Peruvian Festejo along with my own harmony, melody, and interplay with the acoustic ensemble.”
