some ideas for christmas presents
Dear friends of Caribbean and South American Music!
Nobody can deny it any longer: Chrismas is approaching! The supermarkets are filled to bursting already with gingerbreads and chocolate Santa Clauses. There is nothing for it: One should slowly but surely start to think about presents for the dear ones, in order not to depend on panic shopping at the last minute. Naturally, we are a pleased to help you to make up your mind.
Here are some suggestions for presents which will guarantee a nice surprise:
All our tango compilations of the series ìbest of tango argentinoî (8 CDs in total) can be purchased as a package now for the terrific price of 115 Euro. The most beautiful valses, milongas, instrumental tangos and rarities including informative and carefully designed booklets. You can either make yourself or somebody else happy with the whole package, or you can split it and thus surprise various persons.
Vamos!- The Box
If you prefer hot Latin rhythms we can also offer you a comprehensive collection of salsa, merengue, samba and other Caribbean rhythms. 10 hours altogether of extremely danceable music in a box which includes 10 CDs of the series Vamos! There is also a booklet included, which names important dance spots world-wide. This box will bring you a Caribbean Chrismas feeling and it will also ensure a hot party for New Yearís Eve.
First press reactions:
ìThe Caribbean delivered to your door in 10 CDsî (Berliner Kurier) ìImpressing summary of the salsa boomî (Der SPIEGEL) ìProfessionally and infectiously composedî (H÷RZU) ì600 minutes of party fireworksî (Matices)
Osvaldo Pugliese: Ausencia
The most popular hit compilation of the great tango artist Osvaldo Pugliese. 20 titles altogether (Mala Junta, Fuimos, La Yumba...) invite you to dance and dream. Very important: The CD contains the beautiful vals "Desde el alma", which cannot be found on many Pugliese CDs.
Gotan Project: La Revancha del Tango
Gotan Project was the big musical surprise this year. The CD ìLa revancha del tangoî could be heard almost everywhere: in Spanish tapa bars, in trendy boutiques or clubs and also when going to a tango dance event. The mixture of tango and electronic music will also thrill people who do not know tango music generally. This CD edition does include a bonus single with two remixes by Peter Kruder & Antipop Consortium.
Desafinado: 37 Clasicos Inolvidables del Brasil
Here you can completely immerse in the magic of Bossa Nova. This CD is a must for lovers of music from Brazil. The greatest stars like Astrud Gilberto, Jorge Ben, Gal Costa, Toquinho, Sergio Mendes, Caetano Veloso, Elis Regina and many more take you straight to Copacabana.
Polo MontaÒez: Guajiro Natural The Cuban musician and composer Polo MontaÒez is getting more and more supporters. Guajiro Natural is his Debut, which demonstrates with its rather simple but very heart-rending songs, that beautiful music does not need many technical gadgets. The Cuban sonero conquered Colombia first and then became famous in Europe. His biggest success so far is definitely ìUn montÛn de estrellasî, which has inspired other artists like Pedro Calvo and Gilberto Santa Rosa to produce their own cover versions of this magnificent song.
These CDs are only a small selection of our assortment. We hope you found something interesting!
If you do not want to spend a lot of money on gifts this year, have a look at our bargain box. There are always interesting and good value offers.
We would like to wish you a relaxed and happy pre-Chrismas period!
