Bandera Latina's debut album 'Sardegna Mia' contains tracks recorded under a provisional contract with Sony Records and tracks recorded as part of a geverment sponsored competition. This enabled to work and record in the studios that would have been far above the young bands budget. The resulting album was hailed as a landmark achievement by a band on the verge of a breakthrough.
It wasn't until 2009 that the band would release another album. A 'best of' containing some tracks from 'Sardegna Mia' and a lot of songs composed and recorded by bandleader Salvatore Giuseppe Sichi and three live bonus tracks from their never released live album 'Una Serata con Amici' ( An evening with Friends)
Another long wait for Bandera Latina's third official album: 'Catharina' containing the eponymous song with lyrics by Silvana and Salvatore's mother Els de Jong. It was the only song written by her that they had not yet recorded and so it was only fitting the album should be named after it. With a mixture of songs from both previous albums and new material, 'Catharina' was mainly meant to be sold at gigs.
Marking the twenty year aniversary of Bandera Latina the band released this special, very limited edition. Only 50 physcal copies were produced. Containing remastered versions of the original album and a completly redesigned album cover this a true collectors item for hardcore Bandera Latina fans.
Currently Bandera Latina is working on a new studio album with all new, original material. Due to be released somewhere in 2019 the album will surely contain their hit song 'Beach Party' that was released in 2016 as single on online platforms! You can fin it here on Spotify and Itunes. Below, you can watch a Youtube Video of the band rehearsing the song for their 2018 program.:
