monophon will be at the World Music Expo 2016 in Santiago de Compostela!
The expo is held in the spectacular Ciudad de Cultura (October 19-23) with showcases and concerts all over beautiful Santiago de Compostela, Galicia, Spain. We are joining forces with a lot of other Swedish artists, labels, promoters etc in the Export Music Sweden stand (1.52-1.54).
We are looking forward to meet new friends and perhaps some new collaborations, and of course to find some new channels for our connected artists. So, hopefully – see you there!
Here is a great and brand new video from Louisa Lyne & di Yiddishe Kapelye (Label: Maestro Music). We are proud to have been a small part in the project – the band recording was done by us in our studio I/O studios. They also recorded their first album Debyut with us.
MIR LEBN EYBIK – We’ll live forever – is a powerful song, originally from the ghetto in Vilna, with a message that’s once again current. With this song Louisa Lyne & di Yiddishe Kapelye call for humanity and respect in our dark time of growing xenophobia.
We have received a nice little review of Rumores de orquesta in the Swedish music magazine Lira #01, 2013!
Orquesta Tipica Tangarte
Rumores de orquesta
Rio de la Plata Tango. I do not know if it’s a coincidence that 2012 has become a year of tango in Sweden, while New Tango Orquesta released tango for Tide. Not that Orquesta Tipica Tangarte are a new phenomenon, this Argentine-Swedish band formed in Malmö in 1999. It is rather that their newly released fourth CD Rumores de orquesta confirms my tango synthesis. Orquesta Tipica Tangarte play a magical string-based tango as it since the birth of tango has been played and developed in Rio de la Plata, which we Swedes know as Carmencitas homeland. My references to Evert Taube, when I listen to Rumores de orquesta don’t stop there. Argentine Juan José Passo (yes, that is the group’s founder and bandoneonist Juanjos father) sings in a Taube-like way for instance in Los Cosos de al Lao. And just like Rolf Nilsén thought when he in Lira No. 5-2007 reviewed Orquesta Tipica Tangarte’s last album Lo que vendrá, it’s the tracks where the older Passo sings that stick most. Mentioned should also be that the album was produced and released on violincellist Per Tidstrand’s label Monophon. Newer band(oneon) members are Lars Hansen from Copenhagen and Mercedes Krapovickas from Finland. Guest performers on the album are pianists Juan Esteban Cuacci and Cristian Zarate, and guitarist Leonardo Sanchez. Rumores the orquesta was the most passionate and strongest of tango CDs that came in 2012.

With her first album, DEBYUT, singer Louisa Lyne breathes new life into songs and poetry that have lain forgotten for many years.
With enchanting emotion and warmth she and her music welcome us into a new world, where we are invited to share an evocative journey through the old and the new, through sadness and laughter – a musical experience that will linger long afterwards.
Louisa’s passion for language and music is revealed throughout this album, and DEBYUT is undoubtedly the start of something big.
