Alegria

About Album

After delivering a politically-pointed statement in the form of Forced Displacement (Zoho Music, 2015), Colombian percussionist Samuel Torres most certainly could’ve doubled-down in that direction. There’s no shortage of political turmoil across the globe these days, so that move would’ve been completely understandable. But, as Torres clearly understands, there’s something to be said for the power of going the other way. Opting to look on the sunny side here by tapping into feelings of “joy” and “happiness,” as literally laid out in the album title translation, he reminds us that the easiest way to push away the darkness is to simply let the light shine in.
