Camarada takes a trip to the Caribbean to explore the music that pulses through the islands. Gillian sings “Jamaica Farewell” and the humorous “Monkey Song”, both made famous by Harry Belafonte. Peter’s parents had those records and their influence can be felt on his original songs “Musica Del Mar” and “Cali Calypso”. The pace slows down and they do a sensitive reading of Duke Ellington’s “In A Sentimental Mood” exploring the way that jazz blends into calypso. The tropical vacation eventually levitates with the world premier of Peter’s brand new composition “Hurricane Alley.”
