“Everything is peroformed safely and profesionally, but all the time with communication intact. Both in the singing between the two main characters-whose voices match each other so well-and between musician and listener. The name of the project certainly speaks the truth.”

“The songs reflects feelings of loneliness, longing, belonging, loss, love, sadness. It is close to using the term saudade…”

Allt är säkert och professionellt genomfört, men hela tiden med kommunikationen intakt.Bäde i sången mellan de två huvudpersonerna -vars röster matchar varandra så väl-och mellan musiker och lyssnare. Projektets namn talar sannerligen sanning”

Låtarna speglar känslor av ensamhet, längtan, tillhörighet, vilsenhet, kärlek, sorg. Det ligger nära att använda termen saudade”


Tania Naranjo and Reuben Sallmander create in their collaboration True Music Project an exciting new, but recognizable, sound. The two meet in a collaboration where Latino and Jewish music mix with classical, rock and pop in a playful dance. In their music one can sense creativity and exclusion, but also longing, love and the unspoken, the mystic.

The lyrics are written in the language most suitable. Poetical lyrics in Swedish, English, Spanish and Hebrew move organically alongside the music, describing the duo’s 100+ years of life experience.

They perform just the two of them, as quartet or with The True Music Orchestra
