“Cleopatra” by Kono – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Kono is an Italo-disco band from producers Bob One, Eugenio Vincoguerra and Paolo Marioni. The electronic keyboard arrangement from 1986 follows the light mid-tempo dance sound with light pieces of percussion to create short breakdowns. It is one of records which worked well for me in an early evening set or for after hour mood sets. The song tells a romantic tale of desire and fantasy of the Queen of Egypt while injecting the ominous sounds of battle and doom.
I have taken scenes from the 1963 epic drama film, “Cleopatra” starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton to complete the air of the disco track. Using the beautiful photography and epic scenes along with Taylor’s majestic role as our queen. It is to history on of the most expensive films ever made for its time. The Disco Video Mix focuses on the drama and cinema stage here.
The film was directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz
