Sebastian Prince released his debut album "Prince"

14 May 2023

"I am Sebastian Prince. A singer-songwriter, master jazz vocal student of Conservatorium Maastricht, and influencer from Germany. My debut album, Prince, with 10 original songs, is available on all platforms now.
I also have a well-rehearsed set of approximately 75 minutes, accompanied by a live band."

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

16 April 2023

“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.
