Cuerdas del alma  (Strings of the Soul) starts with the song of the same title as the album, a rumba where Cañizares’ guitar joins the sounds of the bass played by Íñigo Goldaracena, percussion by Yoel Páez and clapping by Rafa Villalba, Ángel Muñoz and Charo Espino, the same musicians who participated in the rest of the album. After that first song we find El abismo, where he shows an amazing demonstration of technical giftedness and harmonic renovation, Collar de perlas, a surprising “alegría”-style that surprises audiences from the first notes and the ballad Lejana, with an impressive guitar sound, a demonstration of his Cañizares’ masterful play of tremolo rhythm and a deep lyricism. Later we are once again surprised thanks to Mar Caribe, a guajira-style song filled with an inspired melody that takes us closer to popular Latin American music, Puente arpegiado, a tango featuring another amazing and highly original intro that shapes the whole composition, and Lluvia sin nubes, a song that fits into the “soleá and bulerías” style which represents a perfect example of sensitivity and affectedness in musical craftsmanship. The album continues with Palomas, a waltz supported by the sound of castanets played by Charo Espino and by the spectacular sound of guitars, whose rhythm seems to evolve around an intricate musical labyrinth. The final track in Cañizares’ new album is Añorando el presente, a musical fantasy created to be played with Flamenco guitars that wraps the whole record, as we enjoy Cañizares, Splaying on his own, this song that is a call to tranquility.
