Tangolicious is no more…

Since well before the launch party of our CD on the 13th of April Laura had a persistent and annoying cough. We thought nothing of it but it didn’t go away. She was also experiencing an uncommon lack of energy. In the months following the launch of our CD Laura  went several times to the hospital for tests, but only in june it became clear she was suffering from lung cancer. Metastasis already occured, so there was no cure possible. From then on her health deteriorated rapidly and september 6th Laura passed away, at home and surrounded by loved ones.
I feel very happy we were just able to finish our CD just in time, as it turned out, and her distinct voice has been captured forever.

                                                                                                                                                                                                       “Wat een geweldig resultaat! Ik ben echt aangenaam verrast over de (muzikale) kwaliteit. Heel mooi gitaarspel, Henk. En Laura, wat heb jij een mooie dictie in je stem. (…) Wat mij betreft goed genoeg om op salons te draaien, ook op de grotere….”
