Unique vocal & instrumental arrangements of swing, funk & pop covers including original compositions. Interspersed with Joropos, Cumbias from the Latin harp repertoire of Venezuela & Mexico. Their CD will be released early in 2019.
Strange love indeed, to find an Irish-born, classically-trained harpist, Cliona Molins, deeply engrossed in the music of Latin America, in particular Venezuela, Mexico, Brazil & Portugal. Cliona plays the lighter-weight para-celtic harp in common use in Latin music & is taking it to the streets!
Her passion attracted singer & ukulele player WendyTwibill, who was fascinated by the 4-string quattro & vihuela instruments & their new rhythmic landscapes. Wendy also convenes community & professional choirs in her local area, the Northern Beaches.
Bassist & vocalist pierre luniere adds the third voice to a luscious harmony block & clearly relishes the groove potential inherent in the Latin repertoire, coming from a background of Soul, RnB & funk – he can't stand still in performance!
Let's be clear, this is not a Latin cover band. Strangelove's repertoire ranges from pop covers and original compositions from all players, to the familiar standards of the Latin lexicon!
