"Of Soul and Shadow" is a beautiful, passionate recording in which the fusion of the most diverse musical elements is more evident than in previous releases. Luis continues to grow in talent and maturity. His music has a distinctive sensibility rooted in ancient Pan-American rhythms, but enriched with modern, contemporary expressions.
