3 stars This Spanish already released several good albums so far. Three out of four IMHHO. And "Mujer Luna" is probably the most achieved of their albums at the time of release, the most folkish as well.

The Eastern influences are quite noticeable in such a track as "Arabesca?" which is not a surprise: pleasant combination of flute and violin as well as sweet percussion work. The same can be said about "Duo Para Tabla Y Saz" which obviously leans more on Indian music.

This work is a true world music album, sourcing out the folkish influences of several countries from the Middle East or even further as I have already said. The whole being sung in Spanish where vocals are available (which is not too much by the way).

There are even some ELP influences during the long "Tierra Austral" and combines bombastic moments and jazzy parts. This is another good moment of this album which I would rate with three stars.
