Gema Corredera's New Album to be Released on October 5
In her new album, Feeling Marta, Gema Corredera entices the listener with her stunning interpretations of songs by the renowned Cuban composer Marta Valdés, an icon of the feeling movement. The sounds are a mix of Cuban feeling, trova cubana, and contemporary jazz. Gema, along with pianist Roberto Carcassés, produced Feeling Marta. With musical arrangements by Roberto Carcassés, each track is a finished jewel that reveals a high dose of artistic craft and sensitivity. One of the highlights of this new production is the acclaimed Spanish artist, Martirio, singing with Gema the beautiful bolero titled No es preciso. Feeling Marta, an album for audiophiles and collectors, features Roberto Carcassés on piano and keyboard, Carlos Ríos on bass, and drummer and percussionist Yissy García. The drummer, Oliver Valdés, appears in two tracks. The album was recorded in Miami, Spain and Cuba, and mixed and mastered in Spain.
