The four-piece Dutch Celtic/Latin group released this set in 2009 and it is another upbeat and instrumentally brilliant collection of songs. One song is sung in the band's own language, Dutch, and five in Spanish, but that doesn't take away from the fact that 'Cada Dia' will have you tapping your feet! Trinity have some super catchy tunes and their eclectic mix of Celtic, Latin and African rhythms demonstrate their deft instrumental skills. An English commentary on each song is provided in the album booklet to help one understand the meaning and path of each song while lead singer Elbert Smelt's vocals are subtle and emotive. On "Celtic Blessing" the vocals, acoustic guitar, strings and whistles intertwine to produce a beautiful ending to the album.

After the succes of the first album 'Inicio' Trinity, a band formed by 4 young talented musicians from The Netherlands, recorded their second album 'Cada Día.'
Winning a band battle in 2008 for the Netherlands’ biggest Christian broadcasting agency, the EO, helped them develop their distinct sound. 'Cada Dia' (which means ‘Every Day’) was produced by Frank van Essen, drummer of the band Iona (UK) and a great musician. Cada Dia mixes the Peruvian roots and Celtic influences with African beats and up-tempo grooves which is heard in songs like 'Pueblos Todos,' 'Girasol' and 'Fly My Song.'
