Belgium's best-kept secret ANDY & DI are a British Belgian Duo who continue to astound and excite since their formation in 1995. Words like âspontaneous humour, inspirational, seriously different, a fresh breeze, and unique ambienceâ constantly spring off the lips of their audiences. Their latest incarnation is as a "Folk-Comedy Duo" but they defy anyone to put them in a box and classify their music. It is best to examine their roots. ANDY was born in the Beatles City of Liverpool and was brought up in the local Irish Community. He immersed himself in Folk and Rock Music but simultaneously had an intensive classical education on the violin. DI was born near the City of Antwerp and has an unique warm voice and a captivating stage presence. This dance album came about when during dance lessons at their local dance school in Belgium, Andy suddenly got the urge to write Rumbas and Tangos. He approached the director Guido De Smet for advice and that started him on a new journey of exploration into the world of dance music. Every month Andy would come with samples of his work for appraisal and often Ilse, the wife of Guido would play them at practice sessions. âThere is no greater kick in the world than watching beautiful dancers dancing to a new compositionâ. Many songs that had not been recorded on their previous albums suddenly found a new home. All the songs are in strict tempo and correct rhythm in accordance with the International Dance Teachers Association (IDTA) and are perfectly danceable from beginners to advanced. This album is ANDY & DI meets Ballroom and Latin American Dancing and as such is TOTALLY DIFFERENT from other dance albums. Every song âlivesâ and in many cases has already been performed successfully with just a guitar or piano. But now with entire orchestras and driving rhythm sections it achieves a punch and power that singers, musicians and dancers dream of.
The album starts with a setting of âDesiderataâ, the inspirational poem of Max Ehrmann. But this is no ordinary English Waltz. A pulsating tapestry of electronic and acoustic rhythms support the soaring close-harmony vocals wafting the listener and dancer along to the transendental climax, âAnd it is, a Beautiful World, be Careful, Strive to be Happy!â Another English Waltz follows, this time totally a capella, just pure voices. This is a meditation on the theme, âOne Step at a Timeâ Very useful when youâre faced with a challenge like learning a new dance step! Two Quicksteps follow, the first, âLook at the Moonâ is a whimsical look at romance. A couple meet under the moonlight but they end up getting more than they bargained for! The second Quickstep is an instrumental. a virtuoso arrangement of âThe Masonâs Apronâ, an Irish reel that features Andy on violin and Di on Bodhran and Tibetan hand cymbals! âShe Saidâ is a frivolous Cha Cha Cha about a couple who canât make up their minds and âIâm Only In Love With Myselfâ is a highly humorous look ar egotism and self-deceit. So you can dance the Cha Cha Cha and laugh along with yourself. âDance With Meâ is a passionate Tango and conveys all the yearnings and desires of this most sensual of dances. âSong of Joyâ is an exciting Jive and is Andyâs answer to Beethovenâs Ode to Joy! The dancer is invited not only to feel the Joy but to be the Joy. If this doesnât bring you to a state of ecstacy then there is no hope! Two absolutely beautiful Rumbas follow, âFor Those Who Do Without,â a tender and compassionate song about poverty and hardship while âYou Donât Love Me Anymoreâ is a philosophical journey in search of real love. Both songs feature Diâs voice at her spine-tingling best, soaring high above the bongos and guitars, moving more than just our hearts but connecting with us on a soul level. âCradle to Cradleâ is the worldâs first Ecological Viennese Waltz. Inspired by the work of William McDonough and Michael Braungart it reminds us of important ecological concepts which may just save our planet! âLet Yourself Goâ is an exciting Samba that just builds and builds till everything rips loose. âGive Me The Paso Dobleâ tells the story of a squeamish matador who canât stand the sight of blood and âNot Enough Timeâ is an elegant Slow Foxtrot.
