New Latin American Music with Dom La Nena and Leonor Harispe (Cuarteto Tafi)

Published on : 05/03/2021 – 22:01

After playing the cello with Jane Birkin, Jeanne Moreau, Étienne Daho or Piers Faccini, Dom La Nena pull out his 3th new solo album Time, and it was at home in Paris and sitting on the floor that the Brazilian cellist told her wonderful story of the time, the writing, and the compositions of this new album. When she’s not playing with Rosemary Standley of Birds on a Wire, Dom composes, records his loops, multiplies the tracks and reflects on the passing of time as on the weather. On Tempo, the Mexican artist Julieta Vengas (nearly 3 million subscribers on Facebook) is invited on a title. Instrumental, whispered or sung in several languages, it’s Tempo!

Then we get Leonor Harispe, the voice and author of Tafi Quartet, based in Toulouse.

The Tafí Quartet offers music conscious of its origins, mixed and current. Cuarteto Tafi are songs in Spanish, as engaged as they are poetic, carried by traveling music with modern sounds.
