We support many wonderful projects

The music of Latin - America

Throughout the years Grupo Sal has published a lot of infectuous music-CDs, as well as through the cooperation with exceptional personalities very special „concert-readings“ were created.

1. Lisboa 2. Gracias a la Madera 3. El Pilón 4. Tonada de Luna Llena 5. Alacrán 6. Carandirú 7. El Hacha 1 8. Sale Sobrando 9. El Hacha 2 10. Negra Maria 12. Toca


Grupo Sal

Looking for an own identity an album was developed , which improved the rich musical spectrum of Grupo Sal again. Own compositions and exceptional, unknown pieces – individually interpretated own pieces like CARANDIRÙ – an instrumental with urban character, LISBOA- a Bossa with intimate, quiet sounds or EL PILON – a cheeky Salsa.

Exceptional, unknown songs like TONADA DE LUNA LLENA – a milking song from Venezuela, EL ALACRÁN (the scorpion) – a fascinating drum piece from Kuba/Peru or GRACIAS A LA MADERA – a lovesong  to the wood ,  passionately sung with three voices.

Playing time about 49min / 2011




Ernesto Cardenal, Dietmar Schönherr, Grupo Sal

In biographic snapshots this CD reflects the poetic creation of Ernesto Cardenals in his whole many-layered work. In a selection of well-known and less known poems  he expresses the quintessence of his life-work.

Dietmar Schönherr reads the poems of his friend with masterly sympathy. Grupo Sal contributes  with songs and especially for this CD composed  background supplies to the  very special feeling.

The CD „Canto a la Vida“ mainly contains life – recordings, as well as  historical, up to now unpublished recordings that were made under  very different conditions and at the most different places.

We are very happy that  finally we have a common historical document together with Ernesto Cardenal and Dietmar Schönherr.

Playing-time about 65 min /2008


Träger der Träume

 Gioconda Belli, Suzanne von Borsody, Grupo Sal

Porter of  the dreams

Gioconda Belli, Suzanne von Borsody, Grupo Sal

And God  made a woman out of me…

Gioconda Belli is the important writer of  self-confident feminine nature. Out of her just as passionate as sensual poems full of  faint irony speaks a longing for intimity, but also a hunger for freedom. Urgently and sensitively Suzanne von Borsody interprets these texts, that go under your skin. Grupo Sal accompanies this recital masterly with Latin-American music.

Playing time about 61 min /2007

Sin Fronteras

Grupo Sal

„Sin Fronteras  – grenzenlos“ is a journey through the musical landscapes of Latin-America. Here Grupo Sal traces the African, Indian and European roots of the music to present it with contemporary style elements. Grupo Sal’s infectious sound crosses the borders from the Caribbean to Argentina – with everything laying between. Sensitive and with pleasure in experimenting the musicians explore the wide horizon of Latin-America –  Merengue or Samba, Candombe or Milonga, Huayno or Tango – and pass on their rich experiences with passionate pleasure in playing to their audience. In addition Grupo Sal also picks up newer developments as there are „Flamenco-Rock“ or „Mestizo“, that have their source in the multicultural scene of modern metropoles.

Das Lied der Erde singen – In einer Welt der Gewalt

Singing the song of Earth – in a world of  violence

Dorothee Sölle, Grupo Sal

The last project of Dorothee Sölle and Grupo Sal together was unfortunately stopped  through her sudden death in March 2003. This CD with recordings of our last appearance together , by chance created three months before her death, reflects at the same time the fragility and the power of that great woman.

Playing time about  64:48 min / 2003

Canto del Agua

Grupo Sal

This CD is the musical quintessence of the programme „ Water is Life“. The songs creep around this especially very varied element: bubbling, foaming, powerful, flowing. An enormous variety of styles and atmospheres of the Latin-American , Spanish and Portuguese music.

Playing time about  44.23 min /1999

Verrückt nach Licht

Dorothee Sölle, Grupo Sal

Crazy about light

Dorothee Sölle, Grupo Sal

The theologian  Dorothee Sölle tells her texts about topics like globa madness and resistance, ecology and feminism, mystivs and individuality.Through some of her texts her admiration for the Latin-American theology of  liberation goes just through. Grupo Sal takes up the atmosphere of the texts and  puts them sensibly into musical composition.

Playing time about  62:39 min /1999

De Maiz y Fuego

500 Jahre Einsamkeit (vergriffen)

500 years of loneliness ( out of print)

Dietmar Schönherr, Viola Gabor, Grupo Sal

The first CD-production of the group , a critical-poetic collage on the subject „500 years conquest of Latin America“. Texts among others of  E. Galeano, L. Rugama, Native American  songs congenial presented by Dietmar Schönherr and Viola Gabor, are sensitively woven together with the musiv.

Right through the CD there goes an almost magic co- playing of text recital and music. Of all Grupo Sal CDs  it has to show the biggest span of indigene soungs, melodies and instruments up to the composition of contemporary song writers.
