It’s been four years since Sara Serio’s last album “dararap”. But the Swiss lady with Italian roots has by no means been idle. The album “dararap”, spiced up with latin sounds, opened up the doors to both North and South America for Sara Serio. In the meantime she has been on tour in America twice, has had many shows and made connections.
These experiences prompted Sara Serio to record her favorite songs in Spanish and publish them together with other Italian songs from her albums “Vicino a Te” and “dararap” on the album “Dime”. For this album, the arrangements for almost all the songs have been reworked and enriched with new ideas, for example the featuring of Shoek for the song “dararap”.
The album was produced in collaboration with Ralf Guske on drums (Xavier Naidoo, Soehne Mannheims, etc.), Marc Ebermann on bass (Scorpions, etc.), Klaus Bittner on guitars, Sebastian Studnitzky on trumpet (Mezzoforte, etc.), Matthias Heimlicher on keyboards and Mark Douthit on saxophone (Amy Grant, Larry Carlton, Dann Huff, etc.). The Pretoria String Ensemble from South Africa lends the album an additional special touch. It also features Lidia Genta, Sara Taccardi, Cristian Mangano, Alba Lenzo-Mangano, Nathalie Muhl-Gibbs and Shoek , some of them as backing vocals. Matthias Heimlicher was responsible for the production.
