Italian singer Gabriele Poso has recorded with Nicola Conte and Osunlade, on whose Yoruba Soul label she released her debut album, From The Genuine World, in 2008. This second album picks off where that left off, offering sultry songs and summery soul steeped in afro-cuban rhythms, Spanish flamenco, sweaty salsa, breezy jazz and foot-tapping salsa. While occasionally earnest, it's largely an enjoyable journey, with glittering instrumentals (see "Dona Flor") complimenting the impressive range of songs on offer (Poso is equally adept at slow jams as uptempo floorfillers). There's also a decent collaboration with Osunlade, in the form of the super-soulful "You Don't Love Me".
