North and south, both are America. How they differ and yet, one could not get by without the other, socially and culturally. Gloria Estefan is from the South, originally from Cuba. She came to Miami in search of the American Dream. Along with her husband and producer Emilio, she melded Cuban salsa rhythms and American disco beats into a new sound. Now, with her new CD, she delves even deeper into American culture by singing the standards that Gershwin and his colleagues wrote for Broadway and - not forgotten: her Cuban temperament, her winning exuberance and a few of her hits! And all of this in a brand new form and rehearsed with the Basel Chamber Orchestra.
Celebrating great tunes from the American Songbook, The Standards features song classics sung in English, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and French, some with new lyrics written by Estefan herself. The album also features collaborations with world class award-winning artists like singer songwriter Laura Pausini, violinist Joshua Bell and saxophonist Dave Koz.
