"Censurando Amor" by Mitch Zorba
The album is anchored by “Quedo En Quiebra” (“Gone broke”) a chugging ballad reminiscent of Keane, in which Zorba’s relaxed vocal style is perhaps at its most seductive. Another highlight is jangly pop/rock sizzler “Donde Esta Tu Amor,” which implores, “Where is your love?”; while “City of Lights,” one of the bonus tracks sung in English, celebrates a “never-ending ride” of partying in Zorba’s homeland.
Certainly, the most novel collaboration is “Censurando Amor,” a quintet assembling five global vocalists: Lina Koutrakos and Spiros Exaras singing in Greek, Tinatin in Russian, Emre Yilmaz in Turkish and Zorba in Spanish. The beautifully textured ballad mourns the separation of a family trapped between national borders.
