You can listen to the full interview here:
- Enjoy The Silence, from the collection ‘Buenos Aires Remixed’ recorded and released by Tanghetto in 2005; a nuevo tango from music composed by Martin L Gore and first recorded in 1990.
- La Valse D’Amélie, meaning ‘The Waltz Of Amélie’; a waltz composed by Yann Tiersen. This is the orchestra version from the soundtrack of the movie Amélie.
- Otra Luna, meaning ‘Other Moon’, from the collection ‘Narcotango’ recorded and released by Carlos Libedinsky in 2003; a nuevo tango composed by Carlos Libedinsky.
- Army Dreamers, from the collection ‘Never For Ever’ released in 1980; a vals with music and lyrics composed and sung by Kate Bush.
- Ariele E Calibano, from the self-titled collection ‘Sinterra’ recorded and released by Sinterra in 2008. The name is a reference to two spirits in Shakespeare’s last play, The Tempest: Ariel is – as his name suggests – of the air, elf-like and child-like, mischievious but innocent; by contrast, Caliban is of the earth, man-like and malign, conscious but lacking conscience.
- Salento, from the collection ‘Plaisirs D’Amour’ recorded and released by René Aubry in 1998 with Christophe Guiot on violin. The name is a reference to the region that makes up the heel of the boot-shaped peninsula of Italy.
- Milonguero Del Ayer, meaning ‘Tango Dancer Of Yesterday’; from the collection ‘Choros’ recorded and released in 2005 by Craig Einhorn.
