Dubbed a pianist and music inventor, Emilio Solla’s 17-piece big band the Tango Jazz Orchestra gets a vibey remix from Kabir Sehgal on the track “Llegara, Llegara, Llegara.” Layers of percussion, accordion, horns, and string arrangements eloquently back two star vocalists on the remix, the Venezuelan-born Manu Manzo and Havana-born rapper Danay Suarez. Manzo was nominated for “Best New Artist” at the Latin GRAMMY’s (2015), and Suarez was nominated for “Best New Artist” at the Latin GRAMMY’s (2017) and her album was nominated for “Album of the Year” and “Best Alternative Music Album.” She has worked with artists such as Stephen Marley, Idan Raichel, Aja Monet, and Roberto Fonseca.
Solla comments, “I am amazed how Sehgal has been able to find such a fresh take on ‘Llegara.’ Puertos: Music from International Waters — which features ‘Llegara, Llegara, Llegara’ — is a sincere homage to the flow of human beings, their cultures, and their music across the world. He’s taken this composition to new heights.”
Manzo, adds, “Sehgal remixed a beautiful, soulful jazz classic with pop sounds, without ripping it of its essence. I’m very
grateful he thought of me to sing on this amazing song that brought me back to my jazz roots.”
