Notes & Reviews:

Alejandro Velasco Sotomayor was born in Mexico City in 1956. In 2001 he became a member of the Western Buddhist Order and now uses his ordination name Kavindu, meaning "moon of poet and sages." After several years of writing for the stage in the U.S. and Mexico he founded Arcana Ensemble Acustico, a quintet of piano, marimba, percussion, flute, sax, and cello. They have toured the U.S., Mexico, and South America interpreting Kavindu's music. Seven of the nine pieces on this CD began life as a commission in 2003 from choreographer and arts patron Isabel Beteta for a ballet based on the tarot cards entitled 'In the Hands of Destiny.' Later, Kavindu added two more songs especially for soprano Irasema Terrazas to include on this album.
