"Recuerdos de Tánger" is not an ordinary love song. Enchantingly
mysterious, it tells of two estranged lovers whispering to the
moon and the sea in search for one another. Serving as a
time capsule of a memory, the song is inspired by the true story of
how Triana’s great-grandparents met. From her balcony in
Tangier, she throws a date down at the young man to grab his
attention. From there, their loves story begins as they emigrate
across lands and oceans to be with one another.
