“Garras” means “claws”, scratching and tearing the heart, which they cling to avoid falling and which leave marks on the skin.
Garras is the title of a song by Anibal Troilo, the Pichuco, one of the greatest myths of Tango, author of some of the most famous songs. The Tango is both a popular and classical music, which began as a dance, but the poetical richness of the lyrics have given it a vocal repertoire of evocative intensity. The intimate and confidential language, is capable of inducing liberating abandonment. It is love betrayed, consuming passion, friendship, weaknesses, dreams, blood, rain.
Female vocal trio born from a union of voices and musical experiences distant in time and space that have found a way to merge in a melting pot of surprising sounds and poetry.
Traditional and baroque singing, jazz, contemporary and light music interact with no difficulty between De Andrè, Armenian music, to Cassandra Wilson and Pizzica (an Italian folk dance). Each piece of the repertoire is dressed in new clothes, having new arrangements, written specially for the trio Meltin’pop.
