Dopo l'uscita in anteprima sul Corriere della Sera col titolo "Nu te fermare - la pizzica in chiave attuale", ecco per voi il videoclip ufficiale in HD.
Edoardo Winspeare: "Del Canzoniere mi ha subito affascinato l'attualità della musica, il suo rispetto per le radici, ma in una visone contemporanea".
Ludovico Einaudi: "Pizzica Indiavolata è uno di quei rari album che trascende l'origine a cui peraltro saldamente appartiene, nel senso che ascoltandolo, si viene trasportati altrove dal suo ritmo incalzante, dalle sue calde melodie, dai preziosi intrecci vocali e strumentali, e dalla sua visione aperta che abbraccia il futuro"
CGS: "Pizzica Indiavolata è la musica di una terapia, figlia della tradizione del tarantismo, fatta per esorcizzare però, col suono di una musica allo stesso tempo ancestrale e moderna, i mali dei nostri giorni".
The videoclip is produced with the support of Apulia Film Commision.
Pizzica Indiavolata is the seventeenth album in the CGS history. It comes as the culminating point of a two-year journey, which led the band to perform with great success all around the world, with over 60 concerts in 2011 alone, between Italy, Spain, Croatia, France, Canada and the United states of America.
The new cd is composed of traditional tracks of the Salentino and Grecanico repertoire. They have been re-arranged and presented with a modern touch, together with new original compositions, be that in the music and the words, born out of the need to reframe the use of popular music, in tune with the problems and issues, the everyday life.
Popular music has always satisfied an immediate and urgent need, emerging from what we experience in our lives, day by day. This is why there will be over half of newly composed songs in the album, with words in dialect and griko, which will be about the present. The others are taken from the oral tradition, but with a universal significance that is still relevant nowadays because timeless.
Pizzica Indiavolata is a music therapy, coming from the tradition of tarantism, composed to exorcise however, with the sound of a music both ancestral and modern at the same time, the evils of our days.
The album can boast the presence of special guests renowned on the international scene such as the kora player Ballake Sissoko, the maestro from Mali and one of the absolute best African musicians, who appears in no less than three songs. There is also the Anglo-French singer song-writer Piers Faccini, eclectic and prominent personality in the panorama of European international songs, who is the composer of one of the original lyrics of the album.
The cd will be out in all of Italy from October 23, and from February 2013 abroad.
The album is promoted with the support of Puglia Sounds.
