GENTE ALLEGRA IDDIO L’AIUTA!
That is, the second album by Leggera Electric Folk Band
On this page I don’t often review or recommend CDs of friends or colleagues. How often does it happen to insert a CD in the player and leave it for days and days, without ever getting tired and rejoicing at every listening.
Therefore, when such magic occurs, it means that there is something underneath. Something that remains, that does not go unnoticed, ferments, accompanies: it is the intuition, the sincerity, the quality of an idea. That must be supported by any means.
This is the case of the Leggera Electric Folk Band: a group of young people who grew up between scores and acquacotta, who a few years ago invented a musical project linked to the popular songs of Monte Amiata (Grosseto), opening the dusty trunks of an ancient memory, re- sung and updated with modern and surprising arrangements. In their second and highly appreciated album “GENTE ALLEGRA IDDIO L’AIUTA!” these sorcerer’s apprentices led by Gianmarco Nucciotti and produced by Riccardo Corso, have the audacity to mix Jamaican reggae and tavern stornelli, the Muses and Caterina Bueno, the country and the stories of mine, rock and goliardia, with a taste and a desire to have fun that – I assure you – makes you want to rush to their concert tomorrow. A big applause, therefore, for the courage to do something different, cheerful, deep in this ocean of talented clones.
Now, having participated in the album in question with my monologue, someone will say that I am “biased”. Well yes: I will always be on the side of this youth who loves his land and values it. And disclose its roots with music.
Listen to him! It’s a friend’s tip.
