    IN TRANSFORMATION ---- PRESS RELEASE- - - - ISA SUAREZ
    Isa Suarez' eclectic mix of down and up-beat tracks with infectious & inspirational melodies, on her long awaited third album!
    Arrangements are punctuated with dub, electro, Latin, pop, jazz and international folk influences. She also introduces a unique mix of cinematic musical styles in keeping with her enigmatic film soundtracks. South-African rhythms meet electronics and atmospherics, vocals stream between English, French and Spanish.
    Captivating vocals ooze from her soul on intricate heartfelt compositions, interwoven with moody interludes, words of protest and words of love, melodies with harmonies and flirtatious instrumentation. These exquisite songs express desire for social change, resistance, pleasure and hope.
    In Transformation is a contemporary and accomplished album that leaves us in a dream-like state and delivers us ‘home’.
    You will not want to leave!
    In Transformation is the follow-up to Isa Suarez’ previous albums ‘End of the century’ and ‘End of the century remixes’’ co-produced by Alex Kasiek of Transglobal Underground and remixes by Kris Weston of The Orb, The Revolutionary Dub Warriors, Test Department, Aura.
