A journey of the soul, sound travels, imaginative. Places that I captured the heart, distances that I heard at the Port of Algeciras, a tall man whose eyes were blacks. He spoke to other eyes, made of meetings on the go. And yet the tavern of the port of Ceuta, after passing the Strait of Gibraltar: the colors and the sounds of screaming love for the earth and for the sea that washes them, the Mediterranean.
Old, she lived, exploited and abused, soiled black, red and green but still alive, more alive than all the oceans .. so alive as to fear for the amount of different cultures that encompasses.
For each of these places has inspired me a story, an event, in some cases too well known, in other cases too intimate. For each story a song. 10 tracks, ten memories, ten stories from the Mediterranean. “DI ALTRI SGUARDI”Racconti dal Mediterraneo is the new artistic project of Mariano Bellopede. It will be officially unveiled July 2, 2015 at 18.00 at the Feltrinelli of Piazza dei Martiri in Naples, with a preview at JAZZIT Festival (Terni) on June 26.
It is produced by Polosud, historical label Neapolitan directed by Ninni Pascale and BANCO FACTORY (hothouse BANK OF MUTUAL AID directed by Mario Valerio Nocenzi).
It ‘a disc strongly inspired, that goes beyond the music.
Each of the ten unpublished Bellopede is inspired by an event in the recent history of the Mediterranean (from the Arab Spring to the travel of hope, by migrants to the tales of travelers sailing). For each track, in the booklet, it is associated with a small text (from a poem by Nazim Hikmet or Erri De Luca, a story of Gianluca Solera, from an article by Massimiliano Virgilio to an interview by Simone Perotti Project Mediterranean) that leads to a listening even more poetic.
All this is topped by the beautiful photos of Alessandro Bellopede, travel reporter and Marian’s brother .
The sounds are jazz / world:
a trio of base (formed by Mariano piano Alex Anzalone on electric bass, acoustic or bass and David Edwards on drums), alongside other musicians including Gigi Patierno on horns, Gino Evangelista to ‘oud, Federico Luongo on electric guitar, Ondanueve the String Quartet and the voice of Alessio Arena, winner of Musicultura 2013 (also author of the text of the only song on the album: UNA CANZONE BIANCA).
