Triana y Luca released their second single "Recuerdos de Tánger"

16 April 2023

Triana y Luca

“Recuerdos de Tánger” is the second original single release from Jazz student Luca Vaillancourt's project, "Triana y Luca". It is an intimate melancholic love song that blends harmonies inspired by boleros, Luca’s cuatro venezolano, and accompanied by Manuel Luque (alumni CM) on double bass and Gustavo Jaramillo (alumni CM) on trumpet. The song has a beautiful story set in Tangier, Morocco; it tells of how Triana’s great-grandmother threw dates down from her balcony to get a young man’s (her great grandfather) attention; and they fell in love. The song is a release from their upcoming debut EP "Fragmentos del Olvido" , which will be coming out this June 2023.

The Story

"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.

Triana y Luca

Triana y Luca transcend barriers of genre and cultural tradition. Both being first, second, and third generation immigrants,
the duo explore their own identities part of the Spanish & Latin-american diaspora. Their compositions take inspiration

same time being influenced by their backgrounds in improvisation, jazz, and poetry.
Inspired by artists like: Silvana Estrada, Natalia Lafourcade, Camila y Silvio, Chico Buarque, Chavela Vargas, Mercedes Sosa, Violeta Parra, Simon Díaz.
