Tropica

With this mix of songs, you will lose yourself in a warm, sun-filled adventure through valleys and canyons, across desert hills and seasides. Hear stories of cavalier desperados and quick-witted maidens and how each live and love on the road, in and out of foreign towns. Travel is exciting and fills the soul with wonder, and it also brings longing for comfort and a true appreciation for home. What Tropica offers to the listener above all else is a feeling of closeness--to the sun, the moon and stars, to the sea and earth, to strangers, to loved ones, and to oneself.

In the glow of the twilight
The thought of home
Reminds me, now I'm reaching out to you
Anything I can do
To be safe and warm in your arms
All I have for the heart of you
--Donna Godchaux, "The Heart of Me"

It is a warm, lively, and loveable collection. Enjoy!
