After 12 years of being discontinued, following a limited edition on cassette with reduced circulation in 1998, the second album by Argentine singer/songwriter Darío Cardoso, titled "En Aquellos Días", sees the light again in this revamped, remixed and remastered edition on CD. Through its songs, Darío continues recounting life experiences from his travels throughout the South American continent, by way of a warm and soulful mixture of folk, blues and indigenous music.
This reissue on CD, together with recovering the original 10 songs and restoring and expanding the cover artwork, also adds five bonus tracks: four of them live performances of songs from his first album, and the fifth a new version of the classic "Una Vez Más", now accompanied by the youth group TransformARTE.
Unlike Darío's first album, "Un Lugar en tu Corazón", which was recorded quickly and without much preparation, this second album was recorded after six months of work composing, arranging and performing the songs together with his established band, allowing a much more elaborate and mature result. This is also evident in the live bonus tracks, recorded during the band's heyday.
With styles ranging from Uruguayan candombe and murga to Andean folklore and huayno from the Altiplano of Bolivia, Chile and Peru, together with Brazilian bossa nova and Argentine folk and blues, the whole CD covers a wide range of latin music.
The sale of this CD supports the Faizi and Dr. Muhajir rural schools in the Mapuche area of southern Chile.
