Release text / English
Cinnamon Girl, together with its creator [dunkelbunt], is regarded as the trendsetter of the early ElectroSwing and the New Swing / Lindy Hop movement. The title became an E-Swing classic and is still one of the most successful and popular songs by [dunkelbunt].

Ulf Lindemann composed “Cinnamon Girl” during a [dunkelbunt] tour in Australia (Winter 2007/2008). The text was created from fragments of the correspondence between him and his wife, the violinist and vocalist Barbara Tavernier (aka “The Cinnamon Girl”). The first recordings were made during the trip i.a. in Brian May’s aka DJ Delay Beam Up Studios in Brunswick, Melbourne and Perth. Last but not least, it is the musical esprit and the distinctive brass sections of the Boban i Marko Markovic Orkestar that lend the track a happy-anarchic touch of Guča and Gypsy Brass.
