Raphael Gimenes presents: América do Sol
América do Sol, or Sun America, is a travel log, a journal, an account of Brazilian composer and guitarist Raphael Gimenes’ travels through several South American countries during the second half of 2017.
It is a picture of his treks through the glacial mountains of the Bolivian plateau, the cloud forests of the Peruvian outback, the mystical isles of Lake Titicaca, and the rugged, icy peaks of Southern Patagonia.
However, this will not only be a tale of impression: it is also a tale of introspection. The songs are about Gimenes’ own feelings as he breathed the thin air of the Andes and walked under its ever-glowing Sun.
