Zunzun has made their first recording of songs not specifically for families or of the Latin fusion genre.
The CD is a collection of 12 songs in English, all with intricate harmonies and eclectic mixtures of non-tradional
instruments such as charango, ukulele, kena and zampona flutes, pandiero and udu. The songs were written with a
quiet acoustic feel which give a nice "summery/hammock" feel. Hopefully these songs bring a sense of joy and
optimism for our surroundings both human and environmental.
We sent three of these songs to a songwriter contest put on by Billboard Magazine and Discmakers called the
Independent Music World Series and we have been named one of six finalists (out of over a thousand). We are hoping
with this exposure, we will have an opportunity to release this cd on a record label and also find possibilities
for our music to be played on soundtracks. One of our songs "Foggy Bossa Nova" is being put on a compilation CD
called "West Coast Heavy Hitters" which is being distributed to radio stations across the nation.
We hope to have this CD out in stores by this summer. For a glimpse into what this recording is about,
listen to the music file "Foggy Bossa Nova" on our music page.
