Eugenio Bennato arrives March 18 at Auditorium Parco della Musica Ennio Morricone's show Vento Popolare.
"In the 1970s, as a boy, I invented the Nuova Compagnia di Canto Popolare, a musical band that started from the models of unknown southern singers and began touring the world. Then came the brigands of southern history, then came the Mediterranean migrants, then came Taranta Power, which marked the entry of Italian ethnic music into World Music. Always a music of minorities, a music that matters little in the business of global civilization. My latest work is titled "Folk Wind." I find in it my starting point, my conviction at the time that music can help counter the logic of profit with the logic of beauty and human contact", he recounts.
On stage, the Neapolitan singer will be accompanied by Ezio Lambiase (classical and electric guitar), Mujura (acoustic guitar, bass, vocals), Sonia Totaro (vocals and dance) and Francesca Del Duca (percussion, vocals).
