Most of us look at containers and jars merely as storage vessels. We've all got several of them in our kitchens. But for Dallas' Tania Cordobés, they "represent the idea that songs, art, music, and dance are containers for feelings and experiences," she writes in the liner notes of her new CD, aptly titled Containers and Jars.

Cordobés, who sings and plays piano and acoustic guitar on her latest disc, takes a deeper, meditative approach to making music. That stems from her educational background, particularly her master's degree in music therapy from Southern Methodist University. She writes songs to brighten the soul and move the emotions, such as uplifting little gems "Seguiré," "Cantico Santo," "Miracle," "Eternidad" and "Dreams." Cordobés' sound is most eclectic. It is acoustic-based, melodic, percussive, with plenty of syncopated rhythms (a nod to her Cuban-American heritage), and it combines elements of flamenco, bossa nova and samba.

There's a warm, homegrown, textured feel to Containers and Jars. Recorded at Cabeza Productions in Dallas, and featuring violinist Mariela Suarez and percussionist Ivan Martinez, both of local salsa orchestra Havana NRG, the disc sounds like the work of a bilingual, multicultural folkie.

Containers and Jars is only Cordobés' second CD under her name. In 1995, a fresh-faced Cordobés released two albums, one bearing her moniker called Looking Back, Thinking Ahead and another self-titled under the Surf Salsa banner. The idea behind Surf Salsa, her band at the time, was to merge the authentic stylings of Cuban and Mexican music with slices of Americana that paid homage to her Texas upbringing. It was a refreshing effort, not unlike Containers and Jars .
