In this cd the autor proposes some pieces of Afro-Brazilian music,played with percussion instruments.That cannot be catalogued into one specific genre,since Francesco loves to invent.
The closet musical genre is Samba-Batucada,which inspires the author for the invention of new sonorities.
Francesco has never benn attracted by modernity,nor by contemporary fashion:this is why he always proposes re-invented ancient music.He studied music in the school of a famous percussionist from Nigeria, who has also a deep knowledge of African tradition.
The artist made many trips to Brazil where he met several local artists,from whom he learnt about the local musical culture.
Although Francesco invents new sonorities, he mainly makes that kind of music so that ancient people and traditions do not disappear, as well as to allow us to make a trip back to past.
Many people will wonder why in the cd cover there is the image of Jesus,The artist states that although he was not too religious,some time ago he had apparitions of Jesus,which changed his life,this can appear to be a very strange thing,but is true:He gave the musician some pratical advices and He asked him to make a cd with His image in the cover:this is why the artist decided to dedicate to Him that cd.
Moreover,upon Jesus'advice,the autor decided to assign a part of his earning to charity;the autor today support an American association having the purpose of protecting nature;thus,when you purchase that cd you will not only make a trip bqack to past,but you will also contribute to save some areas at risk of the world,such as the Amazonian Forest.
Part of the earnings from sale of this cd will then go to the American Association CENTER FOR ECOSYSTEM SURVIVAL.
