Vincent Moons Take Away Show is a series of profiles on musical artists from across the globe, filmed by a wide array of directors. They started being developed back in 2006 for La BlogothÃ¨que and have appeared there ever since. This is more than just your standard Q&A or a live performance. The episodes are intimate, with all focus placed on the craft. In many ways, it feels like the musicians are playing for themselves and for their connection to the music. Its not about what they create, its about how they create.
In this video, Moon returns us to Argentinian musician, Soema Montenegro. This time, the action is taken outside as the songwriter strolls down the street, guitar in hand, and operatic voice in the air. From there, it’s back indoors for a couple more tunes, ranging from folky ballads to according-infused yelps. Her boyfriend, Jorge, provides backup with vocals, handclaps, and the aforementioned squeezebox. If you thought little was said in the first part, there’s nearly no dialogue here. Everything that needs to be said is done so within the music. Can’t wait ’til we post the next part? You can view the entire 30 minute plus documentary here.
Montenegros second album, Passionaria, the first to be published in the USA, will arrive on May 31st.
