Every week, Edmonton/Calgary - CKUA hosts submit their songs for our weekly House Blend playlist. Take a look at this week's picks:  an exciting new release, a beloved classic or just an old personal favourite. We mix it all together to create a sonic concoction that'll help kick off your week. This week's playlist includes; Leo Cripps: Camila Meza, "All Your Colors" from Meza's new album - Ambar.

Meza's debut album on Sony Music Masterworks is her fifth studio album, showcasing the Chilean-born talent's ever-evolving artistic sensibility, and finding her reaching new virtuosic and expressive heights as a singer, a stirring guitar soloist, an ambitious songwriter and a producer. Featuring the Nectar Orchestra, a hybrid ensemble with string quartet, with arrangements by bassist Noam Wiesenberg, and pianist/keyboardist Eden Ladin, drummer/percussionist Keita Ogawa, violinists Tomoko Omura and Fung Chern Hwei, violist Benjamin von Gutzeit and cellist Brian Sanders, Ámbar is distinguished by its extraordinarily close attention to sonic detail. Steeped in metaphor, romance and complex emotion, Ámbar is Meza's boldest artistic statement to date, a breakthrough, rooted in the incredible agility and interplay of Meza's state-of-the-art jazz group.

"All Your Colors" infuses jazz, pop and Latin elements to paint a vivid, sonoric picture through a very soulful voice.
