This album is part of the recordings I made for the concerts of the Piaggio fonè Music Festival 2021 edition. I made this recording at the Piaggio Auditorium located inside the famous Pontedera Museum, the place where Piaggio was born and where it still continues to produce today.
In a completely acoustic version, accompanied by his historical travel companions the Radicanto, the Neapolitan singer Raiz crosses the whole Mediterranean. In a recital of author songs demonstrating that in music – as in culture – there are precious bridges between the various peoples that overlook the sea Nostrum which are a heritage to be preserved. The group offers imaginary Mediterranean mestizo music born from the meeting of Raiz (historical voice of Almamegretta) with Radicanto consolidated over the years with the realisation of tours and record works, finalists of the Tenco Award and in the Top Ten of the World Music Chart of Europe. Powerful and refined at the same time, the sound universe of the Neapolitan singer-songwriter’s voice intertwines with the cadenced rhythms, the echoes of the strings, the skins and the papyri, of the Radicanto to slip like rivulets of a story that seems to never end. Sephardi cantigas, psalms, Neapolitan songs, tango, North African and Middle Eastern rhythms: languages that chase each other, the Mediterranean as a pan-regional reality, without borders.
Among the songs played we find Astrigneme (G. Della Volpe, P.P. Polcari) who gives the title to the album, Cammina Cammina (P. Daniele) Era de maggio (J.Carreras, M.P.Costa) Jerusalem (Koné Seydou), and more.
