Pino Mango (54) is one of my favourite singers and I have followed him since Australia in 1985 and liked each album since (and I later discovered the earlier ones, too) but Sirtaki from 1990 is the first one that I think is a great album. Previously he did wrote great songs but there were always fillers on albums. And the albums that followed Come l'acqua (1992) and Mango (1994) are equally fantastic creating the Mango sound I love and continue to like even with his newer productions. He's got a unique voice and very mediterranean melodies and sound. This Sirtaki album is the prime example of all that. Album kicks off with fantastic Nella mia cittá, a daydream put to music, follows with I giochi del vento sul lago salato, Ma com'é rossa la ciliegia, Tu...si..., Sirtaki, Come Monna Lisa, with less remembered songs Terra bianca, Preludio incantevole, Cosi viaggando, L'io, and Ma che musica c'é plus alternative version of Nella mia cittá. All songs are written by Mango, his brother Armando and Mogol and produced by Geoff Westley and Mauro Paoluzzi. The album was a great success in Italy delivering several hist and Mango evergreens.
Mango has released 20 albums so far between 1976 and 2009.
