Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book and CD combination wonderfully succeeds in evoking the northern coast of Honduras. The often unusual photos enjoy a very high quality reproduction. The music is fantastic, by the best singer-songwriter in Honduras, Guillermo Anderson. He covers the wide range of musical styles found in this multi-cultural region with little segues of non-musical local sounds between most tracks. The surprise for me was the prose by Julio Escoto, poetic short stories and descriptions, validating his position as one of the best contemporary authors in Central America. The book could use a bit of explanation about the photos and music for those not familiar with the rich culture of this area, but the project stands on its own as a sensual ethnography that captures a place and time more of the world should be aware of. And for a CD and hardcover book w/ full page high-quality color photography the price is quite a bargain.
