What happens when a group of people steeped deep in their own musical traditions of Black Gospel, Latin, Caribbean, and Anglo come together to create a new tradition and sound?
What happens when the fusion of Black, Anglo, Latino, Caribbean, and Cuban voices unite together to worship in one voice?
This fantastic CD is what happens.
I must confess that I’ve been pretty burned out on popular worship music after working in churches for the past 9 years. After awhile, things just seem to all sound the same. So I’ve elected to either listen to music released in the late 90s or early 2000 when I first became a Christian because it helps me to remember the fire I had burning in me at the beginning or I listen to classical music when I want to pray or read the Bible.
This is in no way a criticism of music being played in churches today. I’ve just been burned out and needed a change for awhile. So when I was asked to review Miami Vineyard’s CD, I postponed for a couple of months. I just didn’t want to listen to any new worship music.
I was so wrong.
The vocals, music and arrangements are so rich and fresh! I’m only familiar with three tracks on this CD. But all of the arrangements were completely new to me and I loved them all. My favorite is: Hallelujah Anyhow.
This CD is a shot of B12 to my spirit and I’m so glad I listened to it.
