Kevin Johansen: Logo

The Argentinian Kevin Johansen was born in Alaska and he also has Sacndinavian ancestors. Obviously, this man's music cannot be classified easily. Thus, also the fourth CD by this extraordinary artist is a wonderfully surprising album regarding the mix of musical elements: Milonga, Country, Pop, Murga, Folklore. Some songs are sung in English, some in Spanish. All the titles were composed by Johansen, and he combines great arrangements and intelligent lyrics.

Karsten Troyke with Yiddish Tango

Karsten Troyke: Dus Gezang Fin Mayn Harts
"Tango oyf Yiddish" is the subtitle of this CD. The Oriente label is a specialist for extraordinary productions, which are far from "mainstream" tango. Karsten Troyke and the Trio Scho (violin, accordion, double bass, 5 titles with additional clarinet) manage to bewitch their listeners. Enchantingly they take us to the 1920s and 1930s and to the area of Yiddish "Schlager" songs in the 1950s.
