VINICIO CAPOSSELA LIVE AT BARBICAN, LONDON FEBRUARY 15, 2011

10 aprile 2011 // Nessun Commento »

‘A visionary songwriter. Capossela, one of the cleverest and most eccentric musicians in Italy, spins enigmatic fantasies of both skid row Americana and mythological Italy in a grittily elegant cabaret-jazz style.’ New York Times

Described as ‘Italy’s greatest secret’ by the Sunday Times, and ‘Italy’s most intriguing musical traveller’ by Mojo, Vinicio Capossela has navigated an inimitable musical path to consistent acclaim during his 20-year career, drawing on a diverse range of influences, from Italian folk to Americana and burlesque. Renowned in Italy and on the continent for his enchanting concerts that fuse rock, theatre, and performance art, Capossela will bring his unique live show to London’s Barbican on Tuesday February 15, 2011. Tickets are on sale now.

Earlier this year, Nonesuch Records released The Story-Faced Man, a 17-track compendium that for the first time offers UK audiences an introduction to the music of one of Italy’s most celebrated and best-selling artists.

Born in 1965, Vinicio Capossela released his debut album, All’una e trentacinque circa, in 1990, which earned him Italy’s prestigious Tenco award. To date he has released 11 albums, including Il ballo di San Vito (1996), which began his continuing collaboration with guitarist Marc Ribot; the Tenco award-winning Canzoni a manovella (2000); Ovunque proteggi (2006), which debuted at no.1 on the Italian charts and won him another Tenco; and the platinum-certified Da solo (2008). Capossela’s last three releases have all been included in Mojo’s albums of the year round-ups. In 2004 he published his first novel, the best-selling Non si muore tutte le mattine, and in 2009 he scripted the film La faccia della terra, which was directed by Gianfranco Firriolo and premiered at the Milan Film Festival.
