Considered the greatest Italian rock singer, and for over forty years one of the most beloved voices of our song writing, Edoardo Bennato brings his distinctive sound to the stage of the Two Worlds.
For years, he was and still remains the conscience and imagination of our country and of Italian music, a revolutionary: he took the music, changed it, molded it to his image and likeness, blending its popular matrix with the rock and roll of the 50s, using a cutting and ironic vision of reality, borrowing the symbolic language of fairy tales and playing with it, being damn serious. He sang his personal revolution, but he has always kept his distance from all those who wanted to allocate him into a definition, position or alliance.
The playground of Bagnoli, on the outskirts of Naples. The classic suburban playground, in an area, the Campi Flegrei, endowed with an immense wealth of spas, archaeology and landscape; so many green areas and even a small island, Nisida, joined to the mainland by an artificial wharf; but also with toxic air, an unnatural sky and a sick sea. The big factory, Italsider, polluted the environment, making it unhealthy, desolate and ambiguous like that of a metropolis destroyed by industrial wars.-.
That playground was Edoardo’s first stage.
It was the mother who supported the musical abilities of Edoardo, Eugenio e Giorgio by sending them to lessons from an accordion master one summer day .
At that time - in the heart of the sixties instead of the Neapolitan melody of the various Sergio Bruni and Mario Abbate, Edoardo preferred the new sounds from America just like boys in New York, London or Milan. The jukebox excited his imagination. Elvis, Paul Anka and Neil Sedaka were his idols.
Since the 70s, when his first historical albums came out - - Non farti cadere le braccia, I buoni e i cattivi, Io che non sono l’Imperatore, La Torre di Babele, Burattino senza fili, Sono solo canzonette - which were wryly ironical about the culture of bourgeois respectability and mocked the powerful - to our day and age - with albums like Le vie del rock sono infinite, where his gaze falls everywhere, from wars to beautiful portraits of women, from love to those who find themselves confused living the present - Edoardo Bennato has always been and continues to be a "fellow traveler". A precious one because with the passing of years his point of view still remains precious, which is that of someone who has been suspended in time, and his " Isolachenonc´è " whether it be Nisida or Cuba continues, from time to time, to send us postcards of love and rock, even if .in the meantime we have grown "big". They are postcards in the form of songs that still make us turn our head, and raise our eyes towards the horizon, so as to imagine something different.
