Tiko e o Tubarão (Brazil)
Ti-Koyo et son requin (France)
Tiko and the Shark (World-wide) (English title)
A project very dear to us, Ti-Koyo e il suo pescecane (Tiko and the Shark) is a bona-fide classic in M° de Masi's discography. Directed in 1962 by Folco Quilici, it features a pleasant story about the friendship of a young Polynesian, his shark and a girl on vacation.
The wonderful score by M° de Masi was previously released, but loving the music as we do, we couldn't refrain from releasing it again in a definitive edition. The popular Roman composer, particularly inspired by the movie, created a lot of music for the film; it would be a real shame not to have it available in full.
So now we present this double-CD edition, full of great melodies and arrangements dedicated to dreamy, tropical sceneries—an orchestral orgy of music realized by a young Maestro in great form.
The double-CD is released in a jewel case with a 12-page booklet designed by Alessio Iannuzzi, liner notes (in Italian and Engish) by Filippo de Masi and mastering by Claudio Fuiano. Two wonderful hours of music dedicated to sun, salt and tropics, full of musical poetry to help prepare you for summer.
