MONDO LATINO

Let's share the joy of listening TENAX by the queen of Italo:DIANA EST .






Born Cristina Barbieri, DIANA has produced only three singles (1982 - 1984) and left the music system very soon.
TENAX is her first release and it's considered her masterpiece: this record was produced with Enrico Ruggeri, a musician who was involved at that time with the Industrial music scene and the production of the first Den Harrow tracks. The bondage reveals the reason why the extended version of DIANA's first track remembers of the glorious TO MEET ME.

One part of the TENAX lyrics is in Latin and plays with the Seneca's writing:

FORSE E' GIA' MATTINO E NON LO SO
UN MONDO LATINO INVENTERO'
TENAX TENAX TENAX
SED MODO SENECTUS MORBVS EST
CARMEN VITAE IMMODERATAE HIC EST
TENAX TENAX TENAX


Besides being a singer, DIANA EST is still considered a style icon for many nostalgic new wave fans.
