In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida." This is one of the most musical CDs of the year, and will help you get over your fear of solo percussion. Ibarra shows her mastery of a range of instruments, but I am especially impressed by her exploration of her Filipino ethnic roots, demonstrated here by extracts from field recordings and her masterful use of the Kulintang, a variant of the xylophone made of eight tuned gongs placed horizontally on a wooden rack. This is a CD you could easily miss that will surprise and delight.
