Tamara Obrovac and Transhistria ensemble present a new album!

"Canto amoroso" is the  new album of Tamara Obrovac and her Transhistria ensemble;  after limited Croatian edition in 2015, album is out for austrian "Alessa records"

 

 The album was recorded in one go at the first rate Artesuono studio in Udine, Italy. The new musical material tells a new musical tale, it is a yet another exciting and passionate jazz journey through Istria and the Mediterranean with sounds of interesting dialects.

On this album, in addition to her native Istrian chakavian dialect, Tamara sings in several other interesting Istrian dialects; the Istriot, the Istroromanian and the Istroveneto dialect in which she wrote the lyrics for the title song of the album "Canto Amoroso", which can be listened to at the following link : SoundCloud

The highly successful album and hit of Transhistria ensemble "Daleko je ..." released in 2006 was followed by the electric "Neću više jazz kantati" (2009) and the classically nuanced "Madirosa" (2011), in which the sound of Transhistria ensemble was first enriched with a brass section in the "Neću više jazz kantati" and later with a string section in the "Madirosa".

In June 2014 the well received "Ulika revival" album by the Tamara Obrovac quartet was released and now with "Canto amoroso" Tamara returns to the original sound and musical expression of the Transhistria ensamble whose members are: Tamara Obrovac – voice, compositions / Uroš Rakovec – guitar, mandola / Fausto Beccalossi - accordion / Žiga Golob – double bass / Krunoslav Levačić - drums.

The concert promotion of the austrian edition of the album will be heldin Slovenia, Austria and Switzerland at the end of November, beginning of December 2016.
