About the work
Once again there is the issue of landscape, which for Leo is not only landscape. The landscape in any part of the world is that nature that man modulates, transforms and recreates, of course, culturally shaped.
The Afro-Cuban roots in this work are undeniable. It is not because of its title, which now only evokes its presence, but because of an entire behavior of rhythmic, timbral and melodic stratification from music with an African background.
