Francesco D'Angelo is a music composer.He has been studying percussions for years.
His adventure started when he met a famous African Master,who introduced him into African music traditions.
He also traveled a lot to Brazil,where he met many local percussionist;during one of those trips, in Pantanal,he opened a record company and he also started a number of projects for the protection of the Amazon forest;indeed,he has been fighting for many years against the illegal cutting of trees.
All the incomes coming from the sale of his CDs are destined to the protection of the Amazon Forest and to the survival of the Indian population.
The music of his CDs cannot be classified into a specific musical genre,because Francesco likes inventing new genres.
Anyway,he calls his musics an "AFRO-BRAZILIAN MIX",since he gets his inspiration from both African and Brazilian Tradition.
For Francesco,music composition is not a job,but just a hobby;he plays music to the only purpose of collecting funds; during the last year he started a new project in Amazonia,the Reafforestation,so a part of his income is dedicated to the Protection of the Forest,while another part of it is used for planting new trees.
For those who love percussions,but,at the same time,look for something special,Francesco is the right artist.
For any other information,please read the reviews of the previous Cds.
Francesco likes to conclude by a saying:
Music for Amazonia
