Listen the complete Bossa Nova album (MP3) from this playlist




Since May of 2004, German Bense is working in his new Bossa Nova CD. The intention of the artist in this opportunity is to reaffirm definitively the profile of his  work, presenting us in a quartet format, brand new versions of his songs included in his CDs "Opus Bossa Nova" and "Desafinados como Eu" (no longer availables because "" no longer exist as an independent musicians site).

Also, German Bense offers us in his new work, new songs recently written like "Love Song in Vain", music that gives the name to the CD. We can affirm that "Love Song in Vain" represents a landmark in the German Bense artistic career; before and after. 

From now, begins the "after". "After" that perhaps says us that the Bossa Nova has since today a new and prolific singer-songwriter. "Love Song in Vain" is his "business card" and we hope that you enjoy it.  You can listen the songs of this CD  visiting the German Bense's music page


Working in the arrangments (08/24/2004)

Together, German Bense and the Cuban pianist Juan Prada, works in the musical arrangments of the new CD.  Prada and Bense knew themselves in 2002, playing in the pub "Bonnie & Clyde" of "Ciudad de la Costa", in where together, they made shows of bossa nova, jazz and candombe.

Since that time, and given their affinity as far as musical tastes, both became friends.  Finally, at the beginning of 2004, German proposed him to participate as pianist in his new work. In addition, the notable Prada will participate in the new album like arranger of some of the songs.
