Stories of Love & Regret

"Silent movies in black and white with smoke drifting across couples embracing to the Tango - this is the scene that Ruth paints with her music."

Ruth Roshan & Tango Noir have just released their third, original album, "Stories of Love and Regret". Influenced by European tango and waltz and evoking the atmosphere of a 1930’s French Salon, this recording combines lush arrangements with Ruth’s bittersweet lyrics to create music which is both elegant and beautiful, new and nostalgic.



Ruth Roshan (Vocals, Mandolin), Amir Farid (Piano), Phil Carroll (Accordion, Flute), Aaron Barnden (Violin), Caerwen Martin (Cello) and special guest, Philip Rex on Double Bass.
