Cuban rock bands new disc
Alma sin bolsillo (Pocketless Soul) is the Cuban rock band Moneda Dura's latest CD and DVD. The work is released four years after the other successful title Callejero.
In conversation with Nassiri Lugo, the ensembles head said to Prensa Latina that the present piece differs from what they had made before.
"I said to myself that in debuting as producer the final recording product would have to differ from the fiesta and pachanga rhythm of Callejero, instead, the lyrics will add the spice I want to sting".
He further said in general the new proposal is similar to the bands first CD Cuando duerme La Habana (When Havana sleeps) in shooting an irreverent charge of opinions, messages and reflections on the environment.
In this respect music critic Joaquín Borges commented; "those who have followed Moneda Dura trajectory from the beginning in 1997 will know they are at the hardest point in their history".
They have produced a 12-songs co-authored by Lugo, Fernando Polaino and Alejo Stivel, sharing with Lugo the DVD direction of spiced humour.
