ROMAN GOMEZ & ANDRIA ANTONIOU DUET - "Encuentro" debut album

Roman Gomez & Andria Antoniou is a London and Athens based duet, breaking new ground with their unique blend of Argentinian tango and Latin American folklore entangled with jazz.

 

At the heart of this collaboration is the vehemence and creativity that springs from improvised jazz. The duet’s music is sensitive, full of passion, and energy while the melodies are lyrical and ethereal accompanied by fiery rhythms. The performers’ style draws upon impressionistic elements, creating evocative imagery through the explorative use of “colour” in harmonic usage, texture and timbre. 

 

Their debut album “Encuentro” is a collection of 7 songs about displacement and nostalgia, loneliness, the utopian experience of love and the power of women to resist and seek for freedom. The album counts with the lyrical contribution of Mario Bakuna, Claudia Salomone and Julia Gray bringing together a creative team from different parts of the world. The cultural amalgamation experienced throughout the creation of this album sets an example especially at our current times of how different cultures can coexist peacefully while new ideas can be generated through collaboration. The album is an expression of the power of encounter (“encuentro” in spanish) between artists and musical cultures.

 

Their debut album is due to be released in 2019.
