Arte - EP by Mau y Ricky on Apple Music

EDITORS’ NOTES

Scan the credits of your favourite Latin pop songs, and you might just find the names Mau and Ricky. These songwriters-for-hire have penned hits in a dizzying range of styles, but the duo apparently saved their most passionate tunes for the sweeping Arte. You’ll find a handful of breezy moments like “Empiezo a Caer”, a lilting flirtation with folk. But the brothers really shine on slow-burn epics like “Para Olividarte”, an orchestral ballad that builds patiently toward an ecstatic, choir-driven climax.

About Mau y Ricky

Mau y Ricky are a Latin Pop performing and songwriting duo and the sons of legendary vocalist Ricardo Montaner. Mau (drums) and Ricky (guitar) began their collective musical career as part of their father's backing band. Offstage they established themselves as canny professional songwriters, penning hits for a range of artists including Thalía ("Porlo que Reste de Vida), Leslie Grace ("Aire"), Diego Boneta ("Éramos Algo" and "Llamado de Atención"), Ednita Nazario ("Ya No Me Duele Tanto"), Yuridia ("Mentira"), and Brian Cross ("Hielo" with Miguel Bosé), to name a few. Mau y Ricky also served as coaches for two consecutive seasons of the reality television show La Voz Colombia alongside judges Fanny Lu, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Andres Cepeda, and their father.

Their first single, 2016's "Voy que Quemo," landed on the charts on virtually all digital platforms and placed at radio stations across Latin America, paving the way for Arte, the duo's debut album on Sony, in 2017. ~ Thom Jurek
