The dynamic guitar tandem Lara & Reyes continue their ever-evolving musical vision on their third Higher Octave album, "Exotico", a multi-faceted collection which textures their one-of-a-kind, melodic acoustic string chemistry with violin, flute, saxophone and keyboards for the first time. "Exotico" is music full of the colors and rhythms of Latin America and the islands. It is music to listen to, dream to... Music to dance to and travel by. Every song has a story to tell, each set against the exquisite backdrop of one or another exotic landscape or skyline. Breathe its salt-water winds, drink its sweet river currents, and let yourself be transported.
