Latin Noir presents the fifth edition of the exclusively packaged Serie Noir by Piranha Musik in reference to the established genre for film and literature, darkly illuminating life’s brooding, melancholy landscapes.
This compilation features a selection of happy sad musical treasures from Cuba, Argentina, Colombia, New York and both sides of the Mediterranean Sea. If you are looking for hip shakin’, hands-in-the-air party music for your next holiday cruise, this album is not for you.
Latin Noir much rather pays a gloomy homage to a new generation of the wretched of the earth and their Sisyphean journeys between shipwreck and redemption, despair and hope.
The various musical styles on this deeply emotional journey span from the earthy, almost tango-like melancholy of the North-Argentinian Accordeon via longing love songs of the Cuban Trova to touching laments about boat-refugees in a modern Latin-Mediterranean tinge.
