Album Review
Don Farrell
Reviewed 2009-12-14 
Mix of Gypsy swing, Columbian cumbia, French chanson with a pop attitude. Local band, 2nd CD, Rupa, a Medical doctor in SF brings a sexy voice together with great lyrics, and musicians for a great cabaret sound. All tracks are great.

2: 4:10 mid tempo, female vocal in French, Parisian cafe sound with vocal noodling with brass
3: 2:44 fast, female vocal in French, nice bass
4: 2:17 mid tempo, female vocal in French,
5: 3:01 mid to fast female vocal in French, clarinet
6: 3:07 fast, female vocal in Spanish, accordion
7: 4:42 mid/fast, vocal in French
8: 3:18 mid to fast, fem vocal in Spanish, male rap in English
9: 1:57 slow instrumental, trumpet featured (about the deaths along the border crossing)
10: 3:21 mid to fast vocal in Spanish, nice rhythm
****11: 5:44 slow tabla, flute intro then fast Klezmer/Balkan sound, vocal in French, bandoneon, Great sound, slows at 4:00 then fast again.
12: 3:14 mid tempo, vocal in Spanish, horns, cello, faster
***13: 4:15 mid tempo, vocal in English, nice bass, trumpet
