POLAND/CUBA: ANNA MARIA JOPEK & GONZALO RUBALCABA -Minione (Universal Music Polska 2017)

After her musical journeys deep into the Japanese ('Haiku') and Lusitanian ('Sobremesa') sounds, this time AMJ sings in Polish with the Cubans. The album 'Minione', which will be launched on Saint Valentine Day, brings back to life the most charming pre-war Polish tangos.
AMJ sings with one of the greatest improvising pianist of our times, fantastic Gonzalo Rubalcaba and his jazz trio. Among hundreds of old tangos and boleros, both leading musicians chose those that inspired them most, such as: ['Rebeca'] or ['Your lips lie']. Those pieces had the ability to span the world of the thirties of the past century with contemporary vocal music, as well as connect various cultures: Polish, Cuban, Jewish, Argentinian and American
