An Evening with Rita Coolidge
An exotic melody accompanies a desert caravan moving beneath a blazing sun. The sound of waves wash against a pristine South American beach. A lone flamenco guitar echoes through the cobbled streets of old Sevilla, and a lilting three-quarter-time rhythm conjures images of the rolling green hills of Ireland. Incendio, simply put, is instrumental world music. The primary "voice" of the band is the guitar, but to say the music of Incendio is solely guitar music would be an oversimplification. Whether it is the rapid acoustic guitar melodies found in Mitra's Dance or the expansive use of undulating synthesizers on Someday, the music of Incendio tells stories that move listeners.
