  • Interview. He is a troubadour, singing and telling stories with a distinctly Calabrian point of view and dialect, pointing out the hypocrisy and deep political corruption in one of Italy’s most troubled regions, but balancing that with a dash of humor and catchy melodies often delivered on acoustic guitar. He will play at SubCulture New York.
  • Modà - Non è mai abbastanza - Videoclip Ufficiale
    Modà is a very famous Italian pop rock band from Milan. In May, the group will hit the road for an international tour which will take them throughout Europe and to the US. Modà will perform at the Highline Ballroom in NYC on Wednesday, May 21, 2014.
  • He was in town upon invitation of Laura Pausini who performed at MSG and asked him to sing with her Vivimi, the song written by Antonacci and that earned her a Grammy Award. So on a chilly winter morning we spoke of inspiration, collaboration between artists and his latest hit.
  • Zucchero, one of Europe's best-selling artists, has released his latest album, La Sesión Cubana, on February 18th via Manhattan Records and this spring he is touring the U.S. and Canada. In occasion of a presentation on PBS of his concert Live in Havana-La Sesion Cubana, recorded in 2012, he attended a conversation about his music and extraordinary career, led by Stefano Albertini, Director of Casa Italiana Zerilli Marimo, and Letizia Airos, editor in Chief of i-Italy... fun anecdotes abounded.

    Tiziana Rinaldi Castro(February 17, 2014)
    Once again on music, politics, culture, and life in New York. But also on the Sanremo Festival—for decades the platform for main- stream music in Italy. Pagani is directing it for the second year in a row, and we want to know why. "As we used to say, the quality of everything one does is political, so music is always political in that it has a political effect. An ugly song is a 'carrier' of subculture whereas a good song is the opposite, so the only way to be positive in music is to produce beautiful songs."
  • The Italian singer Gigi D'Alessio has released his 18th studio set Ora via Sony Music, and is continuing his world tour with a seven city concert run of the North American continent on February 7th. New York's Italian, Italian-American and Italophile communities will be offered a special Valentine's Day concert event at Queens College's Golden Auditorium on February 14th
  • Teatro delle Albe. A Presentation/Workshop on Sicilian Music Tradition Revisited led by Enzo and Lorenzo Mancuso. In collaboration with the John J. Cali School of Music and the Global Education Center at Montclair State University
