Once again, it’s time to let the toe-tickling, tropical sounds of the Stockholm-based Joe Davolaz enchant us...
The first number, ”CHA CHA ANDRÉ”, is a catchy little cha-cha ditty that features vocals by Kumisolo. Her voice elegantly mingles with the orchestra, as the imaginative percussions are carried along by an energetic flute, and a sticky synthesizer plays around with a steel guitar, at once gay and melancholic. An air of romance builds, before the song breaks loose and turns into a wild, completely untamed bossa.
The second number, ”PLAYA ROYALE”, is a more sultry one. Full of energy and throbbing with life, it lets you imagine a walk on the beach after a drink or two, juggling coconuts, hot sand under your feet, getting carried by the summer wind as the seductive (slightly unhinged) French whispers from the orchestra’s own Oskar Carls sweeps you away, enveloping you in a soft blanket of peace.
