Clarity of the Creative Spirit
 
By Mark Fogarty
 
Synthesis. Corina Bartra has been trying to reconcile the exciting music of multiple cultures—Pop, Andean, Oriental and World influences—her entire music career. Now she has done it in her exciting new album, Ocean Mundi.
 
What do you get when you attempt such an ambitious understanding of different genres and creative impulses? You get a synthesis. And it is a very pleasing synthesis. The songs of Ocean Mundi, Corina’s Prisma Project, her “cosmic pop fusion,” are beautiful and full of bright spirit.
 
What do we see through Peruvian native Corina’s prism of Pop, folk, and meditative music? Not the jumble of a kaleidoscope, but rather the clarity of the human creative spirit, which has the same basic structure in all the cultures of the world.
 
Recorded in her native Peru and her adopted New York City, Ocean Mundi is full of spectacular musical moments. Besides Corina Bartra/vocals, they include David Salas/quena, charango y bombo; Clare Cooper, Kayra Guty, Paul Schellack, and Corina Bartra/background vocals (coros); Eduardo Freire/bass; Ramachandra/tabla; Dante Ayala/ Mrdanga; Raffo Carlos/Keyboard (teclado); Hugo Arnaldo Gálvez Urdampilleta/ electrónica drumset (batería electrónica), guitar (Guitarra); Hazael Abraham H; La Puezta/digeridoo. Guest Paul Schellack played guitar on “Inca Love Song,” Oración de San Francisco de Asís, and a solo on “Guerreros del Arco Iris.”
 
Roam this blithe, spirit-driven record and form your own favorites. Maybe it is a Corina original or anonymous folk song in Spanish. Or the sudden English version of Dylan’s “Knocking On Heaven’s Door.” Mine has to be the beautiful Corina’s “Ganesha Sharenam,” which segues from an Eastern-Western fusion into a chorus of “Gam Gam Gam Gam,” Ganesha’s Bija (seed) mantra. Yummy, this song is delicious! And so is the whole album.
