Mexican gypsy chanteuse Nuriyá is a woman of many places. Coming from a Middle Eastern Jewish family who fled religious persecution, and while in life being lured into the vernacular sounds from the world, this Mexico-birthed nomadic lady brings to light the rich, folkloric traditions from her ancestors. Co-produced by Jim Janik (also co-producer of Ojos de Brujo), “Tanita” (meaning little gypsy) is a sultry blend of traditional to contemporary sounds, with heavy flamenco influences, and even salsa, among more. The song, which is a FREE download, is about the road, worldly elements, and just letting go. Produced by Spenglish and directed by Simon Guindi, the video features the stunning Nuriyá arriving to New York City’s Chelsea district and merrily singing/dancing her heart out with a group of family and friends.
