Album Description:

Terminal Caribe is the newest album of Santi & Tuğçe who weave timeless, borderless melodies with global, dance floor rhythms. Similar to their previous releases which take listeners on a sonic adventure all the way from the coasts of the Black Sea to the Parana River, Terminal Caribe presents a peculiarly personal, yet undoubtedly universal odyssey exploring the deep interrelations between music, movement, and memory. Named after a bus stop where the duo had the initial inkling for this album, Terminal Caribe serves as the point of departure for an entrancing journey through a wildly varied world of sound. Soulful melodies, captivating harmonies, colorful orchestration, polyrhyhmic percussions and marimbas, and deep bass lines combine with heartwarming vocals and the sounds of sea to tell a tale that is at once epic, melancholic, spacy and irresistibly groovy.

Santi (from Asunción, Paraguay) and Tuğçe (from Istanbul, Turkey) left their homes to follow their dreams of music and have been road companions and musical partners for more than a decade. They collaborated on two full length-albums, four EPs and numerous singles which captivated listeners worldwide. With their 2016 EP El Regreso del Gallito, “Santi & Tuğçe rewrote Paraguayan folklore” (Thump Vice, Brazil) and with their Songs for My Grandmother, selected as one of the best albums from Turkey in 2017 by Beehype, they remade Turkish classics for contemporary audiences. Drawing on their eclectic background and constant pulse for innovation, Santi & Tuğçe once again reinvent an unpredictable and enticing soundscape of the Caribbean and beyond.

Track Name: Terminal Caribe
Terminal Caribe

In every new beginning is the dawn of a new end
And in every new ending is the brink of a descent
Into that hazy hollow where dreams and demons meld
Weaving and winding their ways back to sunlit highlands

And so begins this story, like so many before
Two young, starry-eyed souls meet and set out to explore
A new world they have long been seeking and yearning for
Off they sail into the sea with a song or two and more
Track Name: Oye!
Oye!

Oye, mi ritmo te transforma
Oye, te mezcla, te desmolda

Oye mi ritmo te transforma
Oye, te mezcla, te desdobla, te da sabor

Te transforma,
Te desmolda,
Te desdobla,
Te da sabor
Track Name: Wandering Song
Wandering Song

A wise man I met has told me that once you leave, you cannot go home
Twenty years into this journey, I am still strolling along
An outsider here as much as I am on any part of the world
No illusions of lost glory, I am still singing my song

Gotta feel it, gotta feel it
Nowhere to seek or hide
No promise of a search onward
I have no place to guard
Gotta hear it, gotta hear it
When that moment comes
Lean upon the earth and listen
That’s where we all belong

Through all these years that I have wandered across the land and the sea
Alone with questions and the wind to keep me company
Even at times the moon felt too heavy and the night too long
I woke up to each new morning to keep singing my song

Gotta feel it, gotta feel it
Nowhere to seek or hide
No promise of a search onward
I have no place to guard
Gotta hear it, gotta hear it
When that moment comes
Lean upon the earth and listen
That’s where we all belong
Track Name: No Return
No Return

Time to leave this island again
Our ceaseless search for new shores began
Like many restless wanderers before
Who reached this land with a thirst for more
We longed for water to grow our budding hearts
Knowing our time has come, we lovingly depart

Many days we stumbled along
Many waves we rode alone
Many nights we pondered upon
Distant sands to build a dream on
Like many restless wanderers before
Who reached this land with a thirst for more
We longed for water to grow our budding hearts
Knowing our time has come, we lovingly depart

Many days we stumbled along
Many waves we rode alone
If you ask “why tell me this”, allow me to explain
I don’t need no sympathy, but I do want a friend
Like many restless wanderers before
Who reached this land with a thirst for more
We longed for water to grow our budding hearts
Knowing our time has come, we lovingly depart
