Wildcard (week 19):
Nu Genea – Tienaté

Nu Genea is the artistic project of Massimo Di Lena and Lucio Aquilina. It’s got a few ear-catching qualities: the duo combine disco, funk, boogie, electronic, dub, jazz, folk and much more into heavenly grooves, and the lyrics are sung in their Napoli tongue by Fabiana Martone. New single Tienaté bears all of these hallmarks.

Martone is a white singer, but she makes the track sound like it was produced in Africa. Obviously, the multi-coloured musical backdrop adds a lot to this notion as well. On this track, Martone’s powerful voice is crossed with synths, strings, and multiple musical influences from south of the Mediterranean Sea.

Following Marechià, Tienaté is the second single to be released ahead of Nu Genea’s long-awaited third album Bar Mediterraneo, which will be out on 13 May. The track deals with a relationship between alleged friends, in which someone borrows something… and then disappears. This groovy, exotic banger is sure to get the summer started.

Tienaté by Nu Genea is the new Carte Blanche Music Wildcard. It’ll feature prominently at the top of the blog for a whole week!
