All music by Lantana
“A women’s band, fantastic!! Is it news? Yes it is. Since centuries we always listen to men’s music, men’s bands, male composers and leaders, etc. Ok, but the women are here now!
So, this sextet proposes to compose and to improvise music, their own music.
Here you find a beautiful meeting of deep listening and simple structures, melodic and fragile sometimes. It’s just wonderful, with deep soul coming from afar, from the earth…
From the truth they come! Please, listen to them.
Go on, Lantana. We want more!!!”
