On his new album World Café, Ron Korb takes us on a journey to the Latin world: sunny Spain, the island of Cuba, and the verdant lands of Central and South America.
Each of these songs captures a moment, a feeling, a memory. Close your eyes, and as the harmonies unfold, and the rhythms begin to pulse, Ron’s flute will yourself transport to his World Café, a meeting place where people from many cultures meet and celebrate life together through music.
About the album Ron says:
“Welcome to my World Café! Over the years I have made many musical journeys, from the wonders and mysteries of Japan and China, to the infectious joy and tender melancholy of Celtic song and dance.
For this album, I invite you to come with me to the Latin world: sunny Spain, the island of Cuba, and the alluring lands of South America. In my World Café, I wanted to explore how things would sound when I crossed a rhythm from one region with a melody inspired by another. All the music is played by true, living, breathing musicians with an emphasis on using acoustic instruments.
World Café represents a meeting place where people from many cultures can intermingle, laugh and make friends in a relaxed space – much like my own multicultural Toronto where this album was recorded.”
