happy mother's day with the song "mamma" by c.a. bixIO

What could be a better gift for a mother on a Mother's day than to hear her child sing: "Mamma, son tanto felice" ("Mommy, I am so happy")?
These are the lyrics from a well known Italian traditional song "Mamma" composed by legendary Cesare Andrea Bixio and performed by numerous famous singers such as Luciano Pavarotti, Andrea Bocelli, Richard Tucker and many more.

Precisely this song was ingeniously used for the last year's Mother's day campaign for the Falabella Retail, one of the largest retail companies in Latin America.
IDM Music and Bixio Music Group licensed the song "Mamma" for the territories of Colombia, Peru and Chille, in a lovely and charming video commercial which you can see by clicking HERE.

Happy Mother's Day 2012!



Congratulations to IDM's author Tamara Obrovac for winning the Porin award for the best female vocal performance with the songs "Titanic" and "Tango i ča ča ča" from her album "Madirosa" recorded with Transhistria ensemble.

We are also happy to announce that Zdenko Bašić and Manuel Šumberac were awarded Porin for the best CD artwork for the album "Svijet Glamura" by Hladno Pivo.
