Columbian Wave

elia y elizabeth – fue una lágrima

elia y elizabeth – la gran ciudad

Elia and Elizabeth, sisters from Columbia, recorded a batch of songs in the early seventies. I wasn’t particularly aware of their existence: physical copies are rare, I live in Holland and it is 2015 and not the early seventies. The recent compilation “La onda de Elia y Elizabeth” belatedly introduces these songs to a wider audience. I am a fan and have been playing it a lot over the past few months.

Naive and heartfelt vocals, slick and orchestral backing, traces of Spanish pop and the Italian library sound… sign me up. Two examples at the top of this post, but the whole thing is great.
