Following 2010′s album “Anda Jaleo,” live recording of Federico Garcia Lorca’s popular folk song collection “Las Canciones Populares Espanolas” (1931), Josephine Foster and the Victor Herrero Band is set to release their second collection entitled “Perlas” (Pearls), due out on May 7th via Fire Records. The songs were recorded live in the studio on to analogue tape by Paco Loco in Puerto de Santa Maria, Spain.
“It is a jewel of a collection, with songs and poems selected by Josephine herself, gathered from dusty old scores and brought vividly to the present with warm performances full of flesh-and-blood emotion. Foster breathes new life into timeless traditional melodies, drawing from the Spanish-folk traditions of Castile, the Basque, Santander and the Costa Brava.”
