Ruth Roshan & Tango Noir

"Darling ... Keep it to Yourself"

"I had tears in my eyes when I listened to it ... definitely my album of the month."

Trans Europa Express - PBS Radio

"A gorgeous, nerve tingling collection of music."

Roots & Fusion - Pure Radio (UK)

Featuring ...

Amir Farid (Piano), Phil Carroll (Accordion), Aaron Barnden (Violin),  Sarah Morse (Cello), William Hewer (Cello) and Ruth Roshan (Vocals, Mandolin); with special guest Nick Tsiavos on Bass.

In Tango Noir's second all original album, "Darling ... Keep it to Yourself", Ruth uses the rhythms of the cabaret, the Tango, the Habanera, the Waltz, Ruth successfully infuses the album with an atmosphere of 1930s Berlin to create music which is new and nostalgic at the same time.  It is a very listenable and beautiful album.

Lush arrangements enhance the style, providing a bittersweet flavour when backing her acerbic lyrics. With cabaret undergoing a revival at present, Ruth is an artist who perfectly captures the mood of that style and era on this album.

When Australian classical mandolinist Ruth Roshan was introduced to live Argentinean Tango in Paris at the age of 23, she was hooked. Now, with her quintet, Tango Noir she has recorded an original album of bittersweet, melodic Tango inspired pieces and songs, and gathered an exceptional group of musicians around her in the process.

Their self-titled debut album was released in August 2009, featuring fresh arrangements of classic pieces by Astor Piazzolla, contemporary tango adaptations of Leonard Cohen and Macy Gray, plus Ruth's own original compositions for the genre.

In their second all original album, "Darling ... Keep it to Yourself", lush arrangements combine with Ruth's bittersweet lyrics to create music which is listenable and beautiful, new and nostalgic all at the same time (available from Black Market Music www.blackmarketmusic.com.au). They are currently recording a third original album.

Tune into Global Village with Roger, 5-7pm for a live set from Ruth Roshan and Tango Noir.
