Besides her sublime singing, Bacardi is accompanied by an ensemble of greats, including Carlos Gómez on guitar, Pablo Vergara on piano, and Yunior Terry on bass, providing laid-back musical support.” -Sheldon Cadet

DESEO the debut album from artist MARIA BACARDI is officially released!

DESEOMaria Bacardi


Deseo, which translates to Desire in English, is a collection of traditional ballads of love and longing performed in the Cuban Bolero style and sung in Spanish, French and English. Born in Cuba in 1957, Maria Bacardi was raised in Europe and given an “A-patrida” (no country) passport when she and her family were forced to flee the country when Fidel Castro nationalized all private businesses. Maria Bacardi’s great-grandfather was the founder of the successful Bacardi rum company, which was deeply embedded in the socio-political and economic fabric of the nation since its inception in 1860. This special selection of tracks featured on Deseo were chosen by Maria Bacardi, as they are the songs her mother sang to her while exiled in Spain. (continues … )

Maria Bacardi will be performing songs from her album DESEO at the STEPHENS TALK HOUSE in Amagansett, NY new date TBD,


Breaking Records Licenses “Victory” Song to Chick Fights!

May 3, 2013 at 9:08 am

Why do we like licensing music to film, tv, commercials and web

content? Because it’s fun!

Take the song “VICTORY” by Lourds Lane. It’s kind of like Queen’s “We will rock you” with a twist of lime. We actually released it as an EP with a “B side” featuring “Victory’s” opposite equal song “Goodbye Losers” which is the same song with different lyrics, depends how you like to look at winners.

Breaking Records licensed the song “Victory” to Chick Fight (see video below).

Here’s a sample of the press Release by Black Pants Productions:

SAN FRANSISCO, California, – Black Pants Incorporated is elated to announce a new partnership with the Breaking Records Music label! Breaking Records has provided the hit, “Victory,” for ChickFight’s new theme song. “Victory” is peppy yet raw sports anthem with a heavy baseline that’s performed by Lourds Lane (who also fronts the rock band LOURDS). The new theme song further underscores ChickFight’s tough, femme-positive attitude. We are looking forward to bringing more Breaking Records tracks to ChickFight and all of the BlackPants Projects.

Maria Bacardi
Breaking Records

Deseo (Spanish for “desire”) is the debut album from Cuban-born New York singer Maria Bacardi (whose great-grandfather founded the Bacardi rum company). For Deseo, Bacardi—who was raised in Europe after leaving Cuba in 1961 at age 4, following Fidel Castro’s ascent to power—chose only “the songs her mother sang to her while exiled in Spain,” as her website describes it (go to www.mariabacardi.com for more info). The titles alone—such as “Sufre Más” (“Suffer More”) and “Noche Cubana” (“Cuban Night”)—often reflect a deep passion and longing for her native country. Likewise, her heartfelt delivery of each bolero-style Cuban ballad on the CD—including the beautiful “Júrame”—evokes deep emotion from the listener. As Bacardi has been quoted as saying, “My art and music are both fed from my desire for looking for the truth in beauty, despite the forces of pain and grief.” Interestingly, singing is a later-in-life career change for the 55-year-old Bacardi, who spent years in the world of theater and visual art (and went by the name Maria Pessino until earlier this year). A top-notch ensemble, including Carlos Gómez on guitar, Pablo Vergara on piano, bassist Yunior Terry and Vicente Sánchez on congas, provides the laid-back musical support for Bacardi’s lovely vocals.
