August 31 2017, New Yor-Uba recorded the CMA-commissioned work, "Oru de Oro". A 45-minute suite reflecting the super-evolving concept of the ensemble and the music, this will be the majority of a new CD, to be completed in October and released in 2019. Am forever grateful to CMA for supporting our evolution. Invaluable.
