“Anima Mundi is an impressive set by Cristian Perez, taking the listener on a variety of di erent musical journeys.” —Scott Yanow, jazz journalist/historian

CD Description:
ANIMA MUNDI [Latin for Soul of the World]. Term used by the ancients to denote the apparent universal force that binds together the natural world and its diverse components.


Throughout recorded history, mankind has marveled at the intimate harmony and interconnectedness of the natural world, which some philosophers attributed to a unifying Anima Mundi, or “Soul of the World”. “

...Therefore, we may consequently state that: this world is indeed a living being endowed with a soul and intelligence ... a single visible living entity containing all other living entities, which by their nature are all related.” (Plato, Timaeus, 29-30; 4th century B.C.)


As natural creatures, our very lives are inherently intertwined with the forces of nature - a reality which has consistently shaped our religions, spirituality, art, and music.


The pieces in this album depict this imaginative vision by bringing together disparate members of Anima Mundi and portraying them in unorthodox set- tings. The inclusive musical aesthetic draws from a palette of many di erent traditions, re ecting the diversity and dynamism of nature.


Defying all musical labels, Argentine guitarist/composer Cristian Perez weaves together genres from throughout the world to reveal the universality of music. With a strong foundation in classical, jazz and South American music, he crafts a singular voice, rich in sensitivity and nuance, that freely explores the possibilities of music as an art form.
