About me

NICE, France

I grew up in Cuneo, a small town in north Italy where I began to sing with my father choir and playing guitar with my sister and friends. I started to make a live out of music soon, by teaching and playing with a traditional music group.
At 24 I move to NYC where I lived about two years serving tables in Italian restaurants and playing music everywhere I could. A wonderful experience to get in touch with any kind of human beings and culture.
At 26 I move to Buenos Aires to follow a love story and get in touch with the latin american culture.
At 28 I went back to Europe and settle down in Nice (France) where I started to collaborate with several musicians and projects.
I produced three albums of compositions, the last one in 2015.
In 2012 I opened a music school to share my passion with the new generations.
I share my life with two wonderful children, a joyful stepson and a great woman.
I'm glad to participate to this wonderful project that give a great meaning to our work.

Planet says

"Planet says" is a reggae song with an ironic approach. The planet tells us that we better worry about us than her because, as humans, we're probably the ones who will pay the worst for our mistakes while she will keep on turning. She has been here so long-time before us, she will keep on bouncing on the different scenarios that will appear with the other planets and stars of the Universe. We are the little ones. It seems that our arrogance makes us feel even able to destroy nature while actually we're probably just able to destroy ourselves.

Pachamama

Pachamama, from Quechua Pacha (universe), and Mama (Mother Earth) is the deity of indigenous people of the central Andes, related to the Earth, the mother. Like a goddess who has the gift of purification, in addition to the power of planting love in everyone's heart, it is considered the one who sows life in the world, contributing to a safer life on the Planet. This piece intends to remove all the filters that prevent us reaching the essence of each forest, plant and make clear how we merge into one while breathing together.

Breathing

Conscious breathing is one of the main practices in meditation and praying. It’s the time to feel the life in his deepest realm and the connection within the inside and the outside world. It’s the time to train the beat of our heart in harmony with the rhythm of the Universe and draw the energy. It’s the time to feel that we’re fundamentally one and realize the beauty of life.

Our world is blue
Play
  • Creativity Award
  • Album Track

The song “Our world is blue” is a declaration of love to our blue planet. It describes the beauty of our world in wonderful colorful pictures and is nevertheless critical. This song should remind people of the unique but fragile beauty of our world and: The worlds impermanence. We´ll lose our blue planet, our only home, if we will not immediately begin to stop the environmental pollution and the climate change. The song was recorded with 15 musicians from all over the world. “Our world is blue, we never get another”

The Earth in 1000 years

WHAT WILL THE EARTH BE IN A THOUSAND YEARS? Do you often think about the future of our planet? Try for a moment to imagine how our planet will be in 100 years, 500 years, or 1000 years? Will it be prettier or cleaner? Will our cities be greener? Or will there be no more vegetation in 1000 years? Will the Earth look like the moon, a desert or rather a landscape? If we consider the speed at which the nature deteriorates due to human activities, the worst could happen and this pretty blue planet could be completely destroyed.

Che senso ha

Another picture of the dramatic situation of our planet and our humanity that is missing somewhere. Starving children who die. Helpless cries call us. How many violence oppresses us. The indifferences that weigh on the conscience of many atrocities. And all the weapons they sell without any scruple. Unnecessary waste reflects all the serious mistakes of an old civilization. Contradictions chase us and the privileges that separate us. And we who stand by and watch…Who among us can still accept. What is the answer to give? So, what does it mean.”

Tell me captain

Tell me captain it’s a grooving rhythm and blues that give “a lighthearted take on what's going on in the world” (Elly). We won’t accept, we won’t give up, we will “…keep on running against the wave, keep on singing in the rain, keep on loving life and human beings…” (Diego)
