"Listening new album of Txarango (asistimos a la escucha del nuevo disco de Txarango)"

The Caribbean freshness of tumbao, reggae, even merengue, is mixed with the Mediterranean aroma inoculated into the DNA of the band.

"Txarango: Flood of Hope - Txarango riuada d'esperança"

Each song and each verse implies a lot of readings, starting with the name of the album 'Som Riu' (We are river), that appeals to the flood stagnant water that has finished rotting , but also a defense of origins . The group was born in the valleys of the Ripollès , where born the rivers that end up and create the Mediterranean Sea. The river , however, also takes a sense of community. The river is billions of water droplets that can possibly change the landscape. All this without forgetting the pun that reveals the attitude of the group and aims to find the smile with its music . Two words and six letters , but many different meanings , a declaration of principles that can be found throughout the album that contains 14 songs .

And like all great river , the disc ends up in the sea and forms a delta where tranquility is absolute . It is a place where the water has lost all strength and fell asleep slowly shuffled slowly with salt water . 'No t'adormis' "Do not fall asleep" is this large delta , a close and intimate song that repeats the function that made ​​the first album 's dance dress , ' put an end talking face to face with the listener. - Ara
