Track samples on the right

This album explores two distinct cultures. Stemming from the mundane and rich aspects of urban life, Tango and Fado represent what is most discernible of the cultures they embody.

The compositions by Cècile Elton are inspired by poetry of two urban cultures – Tango of Buenos Aires, Argentina and Fado of Lisbon, Portugal.
