LA NEGRA - SINGLE

TANGO NOTTURNO - SINGLE
Release date: 20/09/2019
Tango notturno is a cover version of the 1937 tango song originally written by the composer Hans-Otto Borgmann for a German film under the same name.
It is a romantic song about the inexplicable joy that one feels when falling in love. When life used to bring only intoxicated and ephemeral love, real love comes to enslave and overwhelm. Lost in the song of a nocturnal tango that entwines two hearts for life.
CITY OF LIGHT - SINGLE
Release date: 04/10/2019
City of Light is an original jazz-pop song with music by the Argentinian composer Roman Gomez and performed by the singer Andria Antoniou. The song appears on their debut latin-jazz album “Encuentro” and features the bandoneon, a distinctive Argentinian instrument with a sensual and sombre sound, often called the symbol of tango. The sweet, soft tone of the voice and piano lend the song a dreamlike quality. With lyrics by the English writer Julia Gray, City of Light is a song about nostalgia: memories of a city were two people met and fell in love, sharing secrets at sunset, walking by the river; a city of light and sound and magic.
