Musiquita is Marta Gomez's fifth recording. This new project reflects the steady growth of an artist who, while deepening her art, maintains her own strong identity. On Musiquita, Marta expands her vocal vocabulary, enlarging her unique sound to include percussive vocal improvisation and soaring vocalese. Her arrangements have become more sure and years of worldwide concert touring have solidified the sound of her band. But it’s Marta’s unique voice, the quality and the simplicity that she draws from the bittersweet stories of the people of Latin America, that remains intact on Musiquita.
