New step of the DEI SUONI I PASSI project with Davide Ambrogio (born in 1990), Italian singer and multi-instrumentalist who grew up in Calabria and then moved to Rome. After winning the Loano Giovani Prize with “Linguamadre” and the Musica contro le Mafie and Ethnos Gener/Azioni awards as a soloist, he presents the debut album “Evocazioni e Invocazioni”.
Already included in the Transglobal Music Chart and in the World Music Chart Europe, the album was awarded by Songlines Magazine for the Top of The World Album in November 2021.

The album is the result of a work that recovers the multiple functions of singing, capable of translating a vocal expression linked to the Calabrian oral tradition into contemporary sound elements. Just as in the music of oral tradition every song and every sound appears within a rite, each piece of the concert is linked to a specific function – from lullaby to protest songs, from lament to spell.

On stage, the Calabrian artist builds an immersive show around the voice through the use of lyre, guitar with pencils, frame drum, zumpettana, bagpipe and live electronics. In the timbre, melodic and rhythmic research, the show tells an intimate truth, capable of evoking different suggestions.

DEI SUONI I PASSI, a project that was born in 2018 from an idea of Fondazione Fabbrica Europa and Associazione Musica e Nuvole, is focused on the relationship between music and the environment and aims to tell, discover and connect the territories from Florence up to the Tuscan Apennines, passing through the Via degli Dei.
The 2023 edition is organized with the support of Regione Toscana, Città Metropolitana di Firenze and Unione dei Comuni del Mugello.
