- Amparo, once of Amparanoia, continues on her solo career, once more in the company of Joey Burns and John Convertino of Calexico. Espíritu del Sol is a tour de force of broodingly magnificent Basque / Arizona songcraft.
Two good fairies blessed this Spanish singer who seems to belong to a whole new movida. The first was the French nomad Manu Chao, who met her in the mid-nineties and gave her the run of his recording studio, helping her start out. Then came the American Joey Burns, who is the mainstay of the band Calexico and who has followed her solo career attentively, playing in her band and finalising the production of Espíritu del Sol at his studio in Arizona. This new album firmly establishes Amparo Sánchez as an iconic modern artist, whose joyful and positive approach is an act of resistance against the ambient gloom. At the head of a dynamic ensemble, she is a charismatic stage performer and an exuberant 'cantaora' who knows like no other how to mix hints of bolero, folk rock and rumba into her upbeat choruses.
