They are two but they sound like, at least five. With a guitar and a hurdy can make silence speak. Music, like all art, is not a question of numbers or tools, but talent. If it is a virtuoso of the instrument (and Bravo & Diaz are) for better yet, although the ability to execute to make it difficult not easy enough. Above it is the ability to convey emotion, to evoke feelings in the notes. Utilize traditional melodies to develop sophisticated variation is a path lying between cultured and popular since the Renaissance, the finest musicians have been transiting. For me it is a satisfaction that Bravo & Diaz have chosen these songs that are included in my Cancionero popular Spanish Civil War as the starting point of his recent work. In this key jazz - classical music of the twentieth century, they have taken back the melodic patterns of that mythical time to make them sound like something unexpected and new. Hearing these songs is almost impossible not to admire them as musicians, but most still fail to be moved.
