Rosalia De Souza - D' Improvviso (2009)

Appeal and magic, sensuality and mysticism. These are just some of the feelings expressed in the new album by the Brazilian artist Rosalia De Souza, who relied upon Luciano Cantone’s artistic production, co-founder of the Schema Records and producer of the multi prize winner album “Handful Of Soul” by Mario Biondi. “D’Improvviso” recalls places and tastes connected to the Brazilian music of the past and in particular to the sixties. A genuine album touched by a singular Afro-Jazz sound, whose compositions show several aspects expressed by the different essences of the huge Brazilian music tradition. Slavery, politics, cultural movements of the 50’s-60’s, shanty-towns and the importance of the mixture rhythm/harmony where the Brazilian music is more intensified than the other ones. Bossa nova, afro, jazz, pop. We are in front of a multiform project where valued instrumentalists like Fabrizio Bosso, Lorenzo Tucci, Pietro Ciancaglini e Luca Mannutza took part.
