Corina Bartra, a native of Peru living in NY City, has released her new CD SON ZUMBON bringing to fruition many years of musical study and collaboration that make her strong singing seem effortless and pure. This music flies right through the head, down through the heart and lifts the spirit.
Mark Fogarty summed it up this way:
Spanish and English, Latin and American, African and Peruvian with blues and jazz thrown in these songs are a potent and poignant mix of heart and mind and soul, and a big step forward for Corina Bartra.I'm thrilled that I'm able to offer you a chance to purchase this rare CD featuring some of the most exciting music I've heard in a long time and I strongly urge you to listen in!

Una Larga Noche
Hauting interpreation of this great composition by Peruvian composer Zhabuch Granda featuring the Marinera.
- Jazz Times:
"Bartra is influenced by Afro-Peruvian music, American Jazz, and the scatting of Tania Maria."
- Jerome Wilson, Cadence Magazine
"There is a slight resemblance to Flora Purim but Bartra's work is tighter and has more melody. This is exccellent Afro-Latin music."
-Mark Holston, Latina Style
"Bartra's expressive voice flirts with avant-garde techniques whiles she fashions an adventurous program built on exotic, seldom heard AfroPeruvian rhythms."
