This is the first CD by Tyley Ross and Multi-instrumentalist Peter Kiesewalter.  La Donna is an album of Italian opera arias and Neapolitan folk songs in unorthodox musical settings, including unabashed 70’s arena rock, sultry bossa nova, four-on-the-floor disco, celtic and bluegrass-tinged ambience- sometimes all in the same song. Ross and Kiesewalter, are joined by over 20 musicians on this disc including guitarist Vernon Reid (Living Colour), banjo master Tony Trishka, Blue Man Group music director Byron Estep, and a string ensemble from the National Arts Centre Orchestra of Canada.
