"City of No Winters" CD release party saw yet another well attended social function hosted at Paul & Enid Holden's home in Washington, DC's NorthWest neighbourhood; except this time it was a celebration for Enid's poem City of No Winters - about her beloved hometown of Durban which had now become a treasured song on an CD of the title song.

Charming like in an old but binding Marlon Brando love story, hoarse voice like on a discovery road movie, Lou Black's voice goes under the skin, vibrant, bringing tones from Elvis, Peter Gabriel or Marvin Gaye. Sometimes even, the music is daring a catch on Santana, a rocky one. Tall, his gaze vague, his hair black as coal, this Peru born, American raised singer looks nearly shy, though strong at the same time. He is indeed a discovery. Each song of the 13 from his album has a special story, derived from personal experience, revealing and hiding at the same time a life that has its incredible variety of richness. The words are modulated and sound like far galaxies, like colored bubbles sent in the waters of the warm Gulf Stream. Lou Black belongs to those singers who can touch with smoothness many styles. The multitudes of the very pleasurable and enduring music arrangements show a deep collaboration with like-minded poets and musicians sharing their drift for "new pop".

The title song "City Of No Winters" more of a blues style talks about Durban and the mysterious locations of this city with such history is brought to our ears with huge nostalgia and hope at the same time, as if its author, the south African poet and painter Enid Holden, who hosted this wonderful launching of the CD in her DC house, was giving Durban the epitome for the whole South African struggle and renaissance. We hear in the words how much this city resonates in our hearts for all the fights for freedom and justice it has gone through. Durban, Durban, Durban, a whisper. With a great longing presence in his voice, Lou Black says that words still matter. And Lou's warm voice gives thus a soothing glimpse of glee. --Brigitte Kehrer, independent journalist author of "Rwanda: Work of God, Work of Evil"
