From 2003, 'Palahia Street' contains rhythms from throughout Latin America, interwoven with guitar techniques from flamenco and Peru. Rhythms range from cumbia ('Cañaveral') to merengue ('La Bombonera'), from Afro-Cuban ('Jhomanna') to guaguancó ('Azúcar y canela'). The haunting Andean melodies and sounds are included in pieces like 'Zamba del alba', 'Pamperos', and 'Shinguirito.' It was around this time frame that César briefly lived and performed in the Hawaiian Islands, and several songs pay homage to the Hawaiian scenery, such as the title track, 'Diamondhead Dream' and '4 Days In Maui.' This second recording by César Páucar takes Latin guitar on a different road of musicality and melody. César Páucar brings new and innovative sounds to traditional music from Peru and Latin America. Flamenco and South American guitar techniques are interwoven with rhythms from the Caribbean, Andes mountains and coastal Peru. His latin-jazz approach to acoustic guitar creates original music rooted in tradition yet enhanced by the fusion of world sounds.
