1. Turrón

Written, arranged, performed and produced by Deborah "La Cocodrila" De La Torre (piano). With Ron Bland (bass) and Thomas A. Blomster (percussion).

This Zapateo is titled as a delicious desert that is Arabic in origin (almond nougat). Turrón comes in many shapes, styles and forms, and is often eaten at holidays and for special occasions, many times served with strong black café. Turrón has traveled culturally from Spain throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, so eating it is an experience of journey in and of itself, back through our immediate family to our genetic ancestral memories.
