Tango and folklore, delicate poetic songcraft and full-on Argentinean rock – these are the widely diverging musical poles between which the many-faceted sound of Argentina unfolds. All of these sounds have left their traces in Lily Dahab’s colourful resume. On her new album Huellas, the Berlin-based vocal nomad, accompanied by her four-piece backing band, finds her way back to her homeland, uncovering her own personal and moving history of Argentina – all delivered with an exceptional voice that the Badische Zeitung newspaper described as “radiant honey”.
“Huellas” means “traces” – and it is these traces, genetic as well as emotional and musical, that Lily Dahab is now steadfastly following in the direction of her homeland. “When you choose or write a song, you touch something in yourself that has been waiting to be released, a sleeping volcano that is brought to life in the form of music”, she says. Lily has chosen an astounding collection of songs, all of which have a strong connection to her life: “Whether folklore or tango ” as different as the styles may be, they are all part of Argentina’s musical heritage. Every one of these writers has left his trace on my soul. I was singing their songs as a young girl, they were the soundtrack to my youth. And now I approach the songs in a more mature way”.
Huellas clearly radiates a subtle and multi-layered spectrum of Argentinean musical colour, it’s a moving tribute to a homeland left behind that will always be present in the soul – Lily Dahab has committed her entire passion, yearning, thoughtfulness and joy to its creation.
