Sadness and pain. Love and separation. Loss and hope. These are some of the themes running deeply throughout Dubai-based mezzo-soprano, Yana Mann’s debut studio album. A collaboration with Brooklyn-based Colombian composer Julian De La Chica, who describes Yana as having, ‘A very intriguing voice. There is a palpable darkness to her that gives the songs that peculiar atmosphere necessary to tell a story’.
In these current times, creative collaboration can be an issue, but Mann and De La Chica worked remotely from different continents to create a wonderful exploration of intimate conversation, as if a casual conversation in a neighbourhood bar with a stranger, with lyrics written as short poems that centre around themes that unite everyone. A back-and-forth collaboration to discuss and perfect their work, their creativity and expression shines through this ten-track album.
