"There is a dreamy, hard-to-place quality to the sound of MESTIZX," WNYC Studios' New Sounds host John Schaefer says of Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti and Frank Rosaly's new album, which sets the tone for the latest episode of the show, focused on songs from the Caribbean and South America that "mix cultures and styles and instruments." There are tracks from MESTIZX, recently released on International Anthem and Nonesuch Records; Gustavo Santaolalla's acclaimed 1998 album Ronroco, released on vinyl for the first time on Nonesuch in January; Gaby Kerpel's 2003 Santaolalla-produced Nonesuch album, Carnabailito; and more. You can hear it here:

MESTIZX is Bolivian-born singer and multimedia performer Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti and Chicago expat jazz drummer Frank Rosaly's debut full-length album as co-composers, arrangers, and musicians. Partners in both marriage and art, the Amsterdam-based duo dove deep into the sounds of their respective ancestral roots in Bolivia, Brazil, and Puerto Rico to create this deeply personal meditation on decolonization and the defiant power of ritual and protest. You can get it and hear it here.

Grammy and Academy Award winner Gustavo Santaolalla’s beloved and critically acclaimed 1998 album Ronroco—which takes its name from a South American stringed instrument—comprises twelve original tunes inspired by traditional Argentinean music and influenced by music of Japan, Africa, and Eastern Europe. “Ronroco conjures bucolic images and feelings for me,” filmmaker Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu writes in the new liner note. “There’s always a note that surprises, breaks the pattern of the rainstorm, turning into silence, a gentle drizzle, or escalating into a tempest.” You can get it on vinyl and hear it here.

On Carnabailito, Argentinean composer Kerpel, who scored the world-traveling, dance-theatre spectacle De La Guarda, “melds his love of folk instruments with thoughtful electronic touches," says the Boston Globe. "He creates a sparse, sophisticated soundscape that begs repeated listens.” You can hear it here.
