The vocals of Peruvian singer/songwriter Angela Maria’s full-length “Como Soy” conjure a soft rain falling upon the western coast of South America. While much of her debut album, which was two years in the making, is uptempo, blending Afro-Peruvian and Latin rhythms, her vocal quality is at once endearing and intimate. Accompanied by acoustic guitarist (and album producer) Tito Manrique, album opener and highlight “Primavera,” poetically implores, “How many springs are in the winter of your soul?” Other highlights include “Si tu te vas,” which bids a sweet farewell, while “Ven a mi encuentro,” on the other hand, offers a call to (romantic) arms. Duet “Adios,” with singer Carlos Ardiles, narrates the finish of a love story, testifying that all ends okay, thanks to a festive mesh of Peruvian musical styles panalivio, with Tex mex, ballenato and cumbia. Maria spent time in Europe polishing her palette, which, while authentically South American, reveals the ambitions of a talent who could share her wares with the world. A truly lovely launch.
