Image Tango de Norte a Sur
Suomalaistrio Las Chicas del Tango yhdistää kaksi tangomaailmaa argentiinalaisen legendan Horacio Ferrerin kanssa uudella albumillaan. Levyn nimi on "Tango de Norte a Sur" (suom. Tangoa pohjoisesta etelään).

Las Chicas del Tango eli Kukka-Maaria Ahonen (laulu), Johanna Juhola (haitari) ja Milla Viljamaa (piano) ovat säveltäneet levyn kaikki kappaleet kolmen runoilijan espanjankielisiin teksteihin. He saivat myös totetutettua unelmansa työskennellä Horacio Ferrerin (s. 1933), yhden Etelä-Amerikan legedaarisimmista tangosanoittajista ja runoilijista, kanssa.

"Hän on lumoava persoona ja oikea vanhan ajan herrasmies", kertoo Johanna Ferrerin ja Las Chicas del Tangon kohtaamisesta Seinäjoen Tangomarkkinoilla 2011. "Meillä ei ole itse asiassa yhteistä kieltä. Kukka-Maaria puhuu portugalia ja Horacio espanjaa, joten he kaksi pystyvät kommunikoimaan joten kuten. Minä ja Milla kommunikoimme soittamalla ja siinä tunnuimmekin olevan Horacion kanssa samalla aaltopituudella."

Ferrer kirjoitti yhtyeelle sävellettäväksi tekstit kolmesta häneen vaikutuksen tehneestä suuresta suomalaisesta: Unto Monosesta, Jean Sibeliuksesta ja Alvar Aallosta. Ferrer vierailee levyllä myös lausujana tekstittämissään kappaleissa.
Levyn kaksi muuta runoilijaa ovat suomalais-bolivialainen Siboné Oroza, joka kirjoitti tekstejä Las Chicas del Tangon toivomista ajankohtaisistakin teemoista sekä argentiinalainen Alfonsina Storni (1892-1938), joka oli yksi aikansa merkittävimmistä runoilijoista Latinalaisessa Amerikassa.

Image Nadur
Legendaarinen GRAMMY-palkittu kansanmusiikkiyhtye Clannad julkaisee uuden studioalbumin Nádúr. Albumi on merkkipaalu yhtyeen historiassa: kyseessä on yhtyeen alkuperäiskokoonpanon ensimmäinen studioalbumi sitten vuoden 1989 jälkeen sekä yhtyeen ensimmäinen studioalbumi 15 vuoteen.

Clannad, joka perustettiin vuonna 1970, oli ensimmäisiä irlantilaisen kansanmusiikin menestysyhtyeitä. Yhtyeen nimestä tuli myös synonyymi kelttiläiselle musiikille. Vuonna 2011, monien vuosien tauon jälkeen, yhtyeen alkuperäisjäsenet aloittivat Irlannissa menestyksekkään konserttien sarjan, joista julkaistiin myös livetaltiointi tammikuussa 2013.

Kuukausien yhdessäolo kiertueella synnytti materiaalin uutta albumia varten. Albumin nimi Nádúr on keltin kieltä ja tarkoittaa "luontoa". Yhtyeen sävelkieli on samalla uutta, mutta tunnistettavaa Clannadia.

Image Kylmä rakkaus (Cold Love) - Finnish tango, vol. 2
Suomalaisen tangon kaiho, melankolia ja intohimo soivat va¨kevina¨ Tango-orkesteri Unton musiikissa. Timo Alakotilan luotsaamat virtuoosit nostavat suomitangon uusiin ulottuvuuksiin vivahteikkailla ja heittäytyvillä tulkinnoillaan sekä ikivihreistä että upouusista tangoista. Yhtyeen jäsenet ovat Suomen eturivin muusikoita, joiden monipuolinen tausta, kansanmusiikista jazziin ja improvisoituun musiikkiin, teatterimusiikista tango nuevoon, kuuluu Unton soitossa vaikutteiden rikkautena, soittamisen vapautena ja tulkinnan syvyytenä.

Suomalaisen tangon suurmiehen Unto Monosen mukaan nimetty Tango-orkesteri Unto perustettiin vuonna 1998. Yhtyeen ensiesiintyminen tapahtui Lissabonin EXPO '98 - maailmannäyttelyssä, jossa sen tulkinnat suomalaisista tangoista saivat kansainväliseltä yleisöltä innostuneen vastaanoton. Yhtye on sitteminkin konsertoinut lähinnä ulkomailla.

Unton ensilevy, Finnish Tango, ilmestyi ARC:n julkaisemana 2003. Ohjelmiston pääpaino oli suomitangon klassikoissa ja levyllä kuultiinkin useita Unto Monosen ja Toivo Kärjen tunnetuimpia tangoja. Uudella levyllään Tango-orkesteri Unto katsoo rohkeasti tulevaisuuteen, perinteitä kunnioittaen. Mukana on edelleen rakastettuja ikivihreitä, mutta vastaosa ohjelmistosta on uutta, suomalaisesta lyriikasta innoistuksensa saanutta musiikkia. Anna-Mari Kähärän, Jussi Tuurnan ja Unton omien säveltäjien Timo Alakotilan ja Johanna Juholan sävellyksistä soi runollisena modernin tangon tunteen palo. Suomalainen tango voi hyvin ja elää vahvana Tango-orkesteri Unton käsissä!

Since 1989 he has recorded numerous albums of the most popular Irish and Scottish songs and ballads. After many international tours and broadcasts as a soloist, he now prefers to tour with a small group, with occasional solo performances.

This is the latest release from the "King of Salsa" - Rolando Sanchez and his band. Their unique blend of salsa with Hawaiian culture sends you off on an island adventure without leaving the comfort of your home.

"Latin music in the islands could be associated with one person only, it would be Rolando Sanchez. A bundle of unrestrained energy, he leads his band Salsa Hawaii playing timbales, congas, percussions, and taking lead vocals. Even if you think you can't dance, I guarantee that this music will have you on your feet within ten minutes. For the past nine years this energetic band has been at the top of Latin dance music. If you've never experienced the rhythm of Salsa music or the energy of this incredible band, a whole new world awaits you …cha cha cha."
(Gusto Magazine - Hawaii)



Rolando was born in Masaya, Nicaragua, to a musically artistic family; his father, an accomplished songwriter, pianist, and singer. His mother also played piano and sang as with most of his immediate family. His musical influence began at a very young age playing drums with neighborhood kids emanating the music of the time (i.e.: Beatles, Trini Lopez, Paul Anka, etc.)



His band has been featured in many television shows, specials and music videos in Hawaii and Tahiti, as well as numerous write-ups in National, International, and Local magazines, newspapers, trade magazines and periodicals. For the last 20 years, they have accumulated an astounding collection of awards, certificates of recognition, and proclamations.



Sanchez is a musician that surpasses the boundaries of traditional sounds, using a mixture of both Latin Jazz and Latin Rock. Playing his timbales and congas in a mystifying and enchanting beat, his audience goes wild, dancing uncontrollably to his music. His music is alive and contagious, containing something pleasing to all musical tastes.

The Band has established itself as one of Scotland's premier pipe bands, cultivating its own distinctive musical style, covering the complete Celtic folk tradition.





Stonehaven Pipe Band

Stonehaven, situated just South of Aberdeen on the northeast coast of Scotland, has a long tradition of piping stretching back to the 19th century. The modern band began on its road to success by joining the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association and entering into the world of competition. Since that time it has progressed steadily up through the ranks until today, where it has firmly established itself as one of Scotland's premier pipe bands. The average age of the players is 22; they are one of the youngest bands ever to compete at this senior level. As the band has grown and developed, it has cultivated its own distinctive musical style. This album clearly demonstrates how their repertoire slips smoothly from traditional Scottish melodies through the strict disciplines of the traditional march, strathspey and reel, to the innovative dance music of Brittany and Galicia.
