Harpist Roberto Perera has arrived at his musical crossroad. Dreams & Desires, Perera's third album (second for Heads Up) confirms that what started as a musical experiment has transformed into a reflection of his personality, his beliefs, his roots and his musical vision.
"Dreams & Desires is the reflection of a man who wants to present the colors and textures of what emotions are made of. With "a little help from his friends" - special guests like Luis Enrique, Robert Thomas Jr., and Ed Calle, Perera has brought continuity and progression to a musical style that has room for those who want to create and dream. The 10 compositions cover a wide variety of genres from the pop ballad to the Brazilian samba. Even a little Cajun spice has been added for flavoring.
"The yola (Spanish for "fisherman's boat") is the personification of his music, where he comes from and where he is going. While the world continues to turn and distances are shortened by the evolution of technology, Roberto Perera's musical voyage continues to tell us that dreams are necessary in today's world - it's the only way we can fulfill our desires."
