  Andalucia
Throughout Andalucia's history the territory was gradually decreased, reflecting the emerging strength of Christian Spain and the increasing military and political weakness of the Muslim world, then especially in North Africa.
But from this, "Andalucia" has been given as name to the entire Muslim history on the peninsula, even periods when other names were used, and territories extended far beyond Andalucia; Cordoba, Almoravids and Almohads.
Andalucia is often referred to as the most prominent example of a tolerant and cultural Muslim state, an image enhanced by the lack of such qualities in contemporary Europe.

 CD Baby: BRENT GUNTER: Andalucia
Not so with guitarist/composer Brent Gunter who, on his auspicious debut CD, Andalucia on Sandia Crest, has chosen to straddle many worlds in his world fusion instrumental music, from pop and blues to flamenco and Middle Eastern, laced with jazz and classical grace notes.
Likewise, Andalucia is a crosscultural fusion of music (Gunter calls it "my very own Andalucia") that is both earth and sky-rooted yet transcendent.
He opens the CD with the lyrical beauty, "Villa de Amor," then moves into electronica territory with "The Storm Is Near," accentuated by a bluesy bending of the guitar strings and undergirded by an exotic-sounding harmonic minor scale.
