Title - 'Fiesta Global'
Artist - Flor Bromley
For those not in the know, a Latin fusion party for kids and parents alike, Fiesta Global abounds in a profusion of creativity, color, Latin rhythms, and beautiful sound while showcasing Flor Bromley's vocal abilities, songwriting talent, and stylistic fluency.
Flor is a bilingual recording artist, actress, singer/songwriter, storyteller and puppeteer. She is originally from Lima, Peru where she graduated from La Escuela de Teatro de la Universidad Catolica with a degree in Acting and Theatre Education. In 2007, she moved to New York to live in her dream city.
In addition, Fiesta Global features contributions from a virtual Who's Who of Latin performers that includes Latin GRAMMY winner 123 Andrés, Noemi Gasparini (of Latin GRAMMY-winning Flor de Toloache), Latin GRAMMY nominee Damaris, Mexico's renowned Claudio Vega, and family music favorite Jazzy Ash, all backed up by an all-star instrumental and vocal team.
Arriving on April 24th, 2020, Fiesta Global brings to the party musical genres from up and down the Western Hemisphere: Peruvian marinera, Mexican son jarocho, NOLA jazz, punk rock, Brazilian batacuda, Colombian cumbia, and more, all done with a breathtaking air of "hands on" authenticity and cultural respect.

Her debut album, Chiqui Music Boom was also a music experience that encompassed rhythms and sounds from around the world, including Peruvian Festejo, Brazilian Samba, Mexican Mariachi, Bluegrass, and Rock n’ Roll.
So going into this brand new sophomore album you kinda already know you are in safe hands for a melodically fun good time!
The album opens with the drum-led, fiesta fun-filled vibe of, well, 'Fiesta,' of course, with the lower-tempo'd, English-sung 'We Came To America' up next.
The beautiful, Colombian hipsway of 'Lalalalala (Cumbia)' (featuring 123 Andres) is next and is backed by the beautiful acoustic guitar work of 'Vida.'
The tempo rises for their version of the well-known 'Bamba' (featuring Claudio Vega) and that is backed by the trumpet-led 'Panuelo' (featuring Damaris).
The quieter, lo-fi 'Otono' is a real gem here and is backed by the SKA-influenced brilliance of 'Salta' and then the upbeat, poppy energy (no pun intended) of 'Balloon Party' (featuring Jazzy Ash) is next.
The album then rounds out with the guitar rocker 'Superheroe' before coming to a close on the gentle fiesta vibe of 'Vinimos A America' sung in Flor's native tongue.
"Growing up Peruvian, I listened to a mix of very different musical genres," Flor explains. "When I first met producer Sinuhé Padilla, I told him I wanted to make an album that mixes all the musical rhythms from my youth."
"He's a musical encyclopedia who knows and plays all Latin rhythms with ease. His trajectory is vast; he's worked with Lila Downs, Flor de Toloache, and Calpulli Mexican Dance Company, to name just a few. Having him on board for Fiesta Global is very special."
