Mariangela Cagnetta feat. 
Viz Maurogiovanni and  Pierluigi Villani

In cooperation with EMMECI srl

www.emmeci.biz


Line up:

Mariangela Cagnetta - vocals/flute/backing vocals

Viz Maurogiovanni - el. bass

Pierluigi Villani - drums

 

The ensemble is minimal—a vocalist, an electric bassist and a drummer. That's it. The musicians' creative output is anything but.

Vocalist Mariangela Cagnetta is an incredibly versatile, talented and mature artist. She has terrific vocal chops across the session. It takes a highly competent and involved singer to walk this type of tightrope. Cagnetta is right at home communicating and responding magnificently with ace bassist, Viz Maurogiovanni and master drummer, Pierluigi Villani. She's a gem. 

Bassist Maurogiovanni, a regular contributor to drummer Villani's sessions, is a Miroslav Vitous acolyte displaying incredible technical proficiency, deep drive and a bopper's heart.

Villani has proven over the years that he's hands-down a world-class musician. They are both creatively outstanding on this session.

ELECTRO DELUXE

Una produzione Enzo Productions

ONLY FOR ITALY

booking in collaborazione con EMMECI srl

www.emmeci.biz

Per il loro sesto album, Electro Deluxe si avventura in un territorio sconosciuto, a metà tra il groove organico e le emozioni digitali.

Giocando con i confini stilistici, il nuovo album «APOLLO» ci porta verso grandi spazi, verso un nuovo universo musicale.

Come se il groove degli anni '70 incontrasse il pop elettrico francese di oggi. Il suono unico del gruppo è arricchito dalla ricchezza delle tastiere leggendarie come Juno e il Moog così preziose per Eurythmics e Syevie Wonder, il mitico box ritmico Linndrum dagli inizi di Prince incontra il talk-box di Roger Troutman, il vocoder dei Daft Punk dialoga con il Fender Rhodes di Herbie Hancok.

Dopo 20 anni di esistenza e concerti in tutto il mondo, Electro Deluxe ha voluto esplorare nuovi territori musicali gettando ponti tra la produzione musicale di ieri e i suoni di oggi.

FRANKIE CHAVEZ & PEIXE 
MIRAMAR

In cooperation with MUSICASTRADA

Line up: 

Frankie Chavez - vocals, electric & acoustic guitar, weissenborn, portuguese guitar 

Peixe - guitar

Frankie Chavez’s music, surfer and rocker from Lisbon (Portugal),  is a mix of different types of sounds, reflecting all the musical influences he encountered while traveling the world. The result is a kind of Rock/Blues/Folk, with atmospheres ranging from clean to rough or psychedelic. Though it’s easy to recognize different musical influences it’s hard to define his music in a single word.
But we can say for sure that it sounds like rock, folk, blues, and surf with a Portuguese soul
It’s ROCK because his music reflects the real spirit of this genre; essential, powerful, universal…
It’s BLUES because Frankie learned from the greatest American blues masters, creating his own personal interpretation mixed with another blues, the Portuguese Fado. Echoes of this music are inside his songs with his innovative approach to the Portuguese guitar
It’s FOLK because in his poignant ballads you can find sun, sea sunsets, travels along the coast and long days surfing waves.
It’s SURF because his music is sunny, strong and determined, like the sea and the huge Portuguese waves

FRANKIE CHAVEZ is an artist with whom everyone is in agreement, everybody speaks well about him, even the reviewers. He fascinates the audience during his performances, without being cataloged or labeled

“I listened to a lot of blues and rock but surfing mainly influenced the way I play. It’s like to go on the surfboard and improvise on the wave. That’s the way I play now, without too much thinking about the composition, but only about the sound that I like the most”
