Finally it is time for Tangarte’s new record Lo que vendrá to see the light of day. And as if that weren’t enough, it is also the first release from monophon as a record label!
We start by celebrating at Barnens scen in Malmö on October, 26, 2007 at 7 pm for invited and from 8.30 pm for everyone, where there also will be a short live performance. The record will be sold at a reduced price for that evening. The record will also be available through iTunes music store and other download services.
For a start the physical record will only be available at concerts or by order in the shop, but later on we will try to get it distributed to stores as well.
Lo que vendrá is the name of the latest record by Orquesta Típica Tangarte. The album is available on iTunes music store (in the new plus format with better audio quality and without copy protection) and several other download services, just as the last record. For a start the physical record will only be available at shows or at www.monophon.se, but later on we hope to get it to record stores as well.
