OBSESIÓN is the debutalbum of Latin Singer and Songwriter Maria Catharina with a luscious line-up of musicians: a summery cocktail of Latin fusion with Afro-Cuban uptempo songs, ballads and Brazilian influences.
DJ El Chino (COL), the world renowned critic for Latin music, wrote:
"OBSESIÓN is one of the most beautiful productions from Europe of the last years. It might be even in our Top 10 of the Best Albums made in the last 10 years. Elements of Son, Timba, Rhythm n’ Blues and Jazz complement each other perfectly with the grand voice of Maria Catharina."
Next to her own compositions, Maria Catharina's OBSESIÓN also features the Cuban Bolero 'Obsesión', 'Una mañana' by Claire Fisher and 'Night in Tunisia' by Dizzy Gillespie.
