Arnaldo Prete and live band

18/11/2017 - 18/11/2017

'Danzé' is a Lingala word meaning 'extraordinary'. Indeed, the story of this album is not run-of-the-mill. In 2014, the Italian guitarist and vocalist Arnaldo Prete took up a musical residency in the Republic of Congo. His mission: to explore Congolese musical traditions in order to enrich his own compositions (up to that point, Arnaldo had got his inspiration from Brazilian and Cuban music). Extraordinary, like this musical journey through continents and cultures, from Italy and the Congo to Brazil and Mexico.
On his return to Europe, Arnaldo continued to disseminate the spirit of Danzé on all the stages he set foot on. His live performances convey a sincere energy, stamped with his sensitivity. Through his varied rhythms and his lyrics in Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Lingala, Arnaldo rocks his audience from one continent to another. "Danzé" is a daring tribute to multiculturalism, cultural dialogue and breaking down barriers between genres!
