“Souvenirs Panamericanos” by Raúl Barboza & Daniel Díaz

Today, Cezame Music/Cezame Latin released a new album titled Souvenirs Panamericanos composed and recorded with the great accordionist and “chamamé” music big figure Raúl Barboza from Argentina.


At the age of 84, the outstanding accordionist of Chamamé and “litoraleña” music, Raúl Barboza releases a new single, as a preview of the album created together with the virtuoso composer and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Díaz.

The idea for the album was born during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. Barboza and Diaz are Argentinian musicians who have been based in Paris for decades and have already collaborated in a number of projects and concerts. In addition, they are neighbours and at the time when the corona virus began to spread and lockdown was imposed, neighbourly proximity was an advantage as it gave them the time and space for a series of creative exchanges, improvisations and the opportunity for musical exploration.

“Between the two of us, new sounds began to appear. The music of the bass and other instruments inspired me with ideas for the accordion. I always try to look for what is not foreseen, and that’s how a whole repertoire started to emerge”, says Raúl Barboza.

The result is a truly collaborative project, where the musicians have managed to combine two different ways of working in the studio, two languages and two vocabularies.

Raul Barboza Trio Live, Armenia 2017

This is Raul Barboza “European Trio”. We’ve been actively performing in France and abroad for the past decade, but we never recorded in the studio as a trio before (Raul and I did an album alone as a duo, Ruta 40, Norberto recorded with Raul on some of Barboza’s albums from the late 1990’s and Norberto and I have collaborated on each other’s records for a long time, most notably on Norberto Pedreira Trio).

After some shows in France a couple of years ago, we decided to go to the studio and informally perform our usual set-list, just for fun and to have a recorded souvenir of our more “free” improvised takes on some of Barboza’s standard “chamamés”.

I went back to those shelved sessions this year in order to choose the best takes and mix down the 4-track masters for a listening session with Raul and Norberto.

The relaxed, informal, warm (albeit rough at times), sensitive and fun feel, pleased us. So we decided to release it “as is”.

The cover art is a photo graciously proposed to us by American photographer Paul Hosefros (NY Times).

Thanks for listening,

Regards DD
