About the Album

"Me Quedo Contigo" is a track from vibraphonist Dan Neville & vocalist Xiomara Torres' album La Voz del Mar, out via Patois Records. Recorded on Colombia’s Pacific coast, the album features guest artists John Benitez, Edmar Castañeda, John Santos, Wayne Wallace and Destiny Muhammad. The musical seeds scattered across the Americas by the African diaspora took root far from the motherland, eventually bursting forth in an astounding variety of kindred styles, traditions and idioms. Some, like Cuban son, Brazilian samba and American blues, quickly reverberated around the world. But others have been overlooked and undervalued, like the enthralling rhythms and songs of Colombia’s Pacific coast, where generations of Afro-Colombians have nurtured a verdant array of music heard nowhere else in the world. La Voz del Mar introduces the stunning singer Xiomara Torres (pronounced See-o-mar-a), who hails from one of the region’s most illustrious musical families.
