This is the record that brought this Colombian-born songstress widespread critical acclaim. Cantos De Agua Dulce charted on Billboard’s Top 10 Jazz Albums tally, the CMJ New World Chart and the World Music Europe Chart. On the strength of this recording, Gomez was nominated for Best Latin Jazz Vocalist of 2005 by Billboard’s Latin Music Awards and was described by the magazine’s reviewer as “… the essence of Latin cool”.

With her velvety voice and jazz infused arrangements, Marta Gomez takes South American indigenous folk music into a hip new realm. Marta not only traverses a whole range of rhythms based on South American folklore, she also writes melodies and refrains that translate across all languages. “With an exquisite voice, Marta manages to sound like a pure folk-traditionalist and jazzy pop adventurer at the same time”. — The Boston Herald
