CD La Paloma CD
LA PALOMA is one of the most popular songs ever written. Composed in Spain by Sebastian de Iradier in the last century, it immediately became a huge success and continued on a triumphal march around the world. From China to Hawaii and from Cuba to Scandinavia - wherever it went, people fell in love with the melody and turned it into tangos, marches and even reggae. Opera singers couldn't resist its schmalz and neither could the jazz avant-garde or rock musicians. Following the success of LA PALOMA Vol. 1 & 2, here are another 28 versions of the song of the century.

"I strongly approve a project started by the Trikont record label, surely the only commercial organisation on earth with offices in Munich and Hebden Bridge, to release a series of CDs featuring nothing but recordings of LA PALOMA. So far, four CDs have brought us, from memory, 108 LA PALOMAS. I hope there are more to come."
