ABOUT ME

Hello everybody! I am an italian musician, singer-songwriter and producer. I built my musical background on very different genres because of my curiousness, which makes me search for the beauty of diversity, in music, arts and mankind. I've been playing in different bands and projects, from rock to funk, from italian folklore to electro-pop and country. I mostly produce acoustic folk and rock blues records but I recently expanded my experience in electronic music too. I play piano, acoustic and electric guitar, drums, bass, accordion and analog synthesizers. I'm really glad to join this community to enlarge my musical horizons!

Earth Tell My Eager Hands
This song is about one of the most archaic symbiosis between human mankind and the earth. The peasants humble plea to his lands, to provide for his people, ready to work with his hands and in his sweat. I started with piano and voice building the structure and atmosphere of the song. Mauro came up with a great arrangement, based on electronic grooves, sampling different objects to recreate the sound of working the land. Natalie gave nice trumpet parts, lightening up the mood of the plea in an almost New Orleans marching band spirit. Msafiri wrote a beautiful poem in his language (complementary to my lyrics) recorded his voice, speaking and chanting. And here it is : our tribute to the infinite force of the earth and how we are intertwined therein.

Hymn
This song is written and produced by Mauro Lazzaretto (Italy), but the contribution of the singer Sharon Ben-Zadok (Israel), who interpreted the lyrics with immense care and respect and added a Mantra in sanskrit, the feeling and the huge talent of the flautist Sandro Friedrich (Switzerland) and the traditional secrets and knowledges of the sarangi-player Yuji Nakagawa (Japan) allowed to create a brand new blend of many identities, a glue keeping four worlds together. The song is about the endless ways our planet is speaking to us and our impossibility to hear that voice, unless we open our mind and not just our ears. A warning, but also a hymn of hope.
