Da sempre protagonista nel mondo con la sua tradizione, la musica italiana – grazie all’Altra Italia – è pronta a varcare i confini della penisola per arrivare fino a Toronto.

Il grande fermento della musica italiana e la sua creatività non si fermano mai ecco perché nei concerti e nelle iniziative musicali organizzate dall’Altra Italia ci sarà solo il meglio della sua produzione: dai principali ambasciatori contemporanei fino agli artisti emergenti che stanno per salire ora alla ribalta.

Tutti gli eventi sono tesi al rafforzamento della promozione della musica italiana nel mondo che è in grado di trasmettere in pochi minuti i valori che contraddistinguono l’essenza del Made in Italy.

Per rendere unici e indimenticabili i suoi eventi, quando possibile, L’Altra Italia dà la possibilità ai suoi soci di poter incontrare personalmente l’artista e di seguirne l’intervista post concerto.

Onoriamo l’altissimo poeta

Onorate l’altissimo poeta: Lectura Dantis e musica ispirata alla Divina Commedia

Si tratta di un’occasione imperdibile per avvicinare o approfondire la grande arte del sommo poeta italiano, Dante Alighieri, con letture interpretate in italiano da attori professionisti provenienti dall’Italia e in inglese da prestigiosi attori canadesi. Le letture saranno accompagnate dall’esecuzione di brani di musiche ispirate alla Divina Commedia con musicisti del più elevato livello internazionale, dall’Italia il gruppo Benedetto Marcello e dal Canada i Tafel Music. Ci sarà inoltre una prima mondiale di un compositore italo-canadese, Ennio Paolo. È un avvenimento davvero da non perdere per introdurre i vostri figli o nipoti alle tematiche e sonorità della Divina Commedia, una delle vette più elevate della poesia italiana e fondativa della letteratura mondiale. Oppure potrete essere voi a lasciarvi cullare per un intero pomeriggio dalla dolcezza del canto  lirico italiano nelle parole e rime del suo altissimo poeta

The Italian Bruce Springsteen, that’s how many critics have described Ligabue and his music — not only for his sound, strongly influenced by U.S. classic rock, nor for his lyrics about love, rock & roll, and dreams of escape (with Italy’s Via Emilia in place of Route 66), and not even for his look.ligabueconcertostadioarechi1

No, such a comparison is mainly due to the impact that Ligabue has on his wide audience and to the way in which his fans strongly identify with his songs.

Authenticity, sweat, and electric guitars: these are the ingredients of a recipe that, with very small changes during the years, have made him one of the most successful Italian rockers of the last two decades.

Born in the province of Catania in the Sicily region, Battiato has built a longstanding career as an artist in every aspect: he is singer-songwriter, composer, filmmaker and, under the pseudonym Süphan Barzani, also a painter.

He is and has been for decades one of the most popular pop singer-songwriters in Italy. His unique sound, song-crafting and especially his lyrics, often containing philosophical, religious, and culturally exotic references, as wells as tackling or painting universal themes about the human condition – unusual subjects for pop songs – earned him a unique spot on Italy’s music scene, and the nickname of “Il Maestro” (‘The Master’, or ‘The Teacher’)

Battiato’s unique style has made him stand out in the Italian music scene from the 1970s even until today.

Battiato has collaborated with numerous talented musicians from a variety of musical backgrounds, such as Jim Kerr of Simple Minds, Italian singer Alice, Jim O’Rourke, Carmen Consoli and Mercedes Sosa.

With a career that spans over 30 years, Battiato has produced 38 albums, in multiple languages, from English, Spanish, French, Arabic, and of course Italian. He is not only an acclaimed singer/songwriter, but his talents also extend into the realm of visual arts. He is a painter and has worked in the film industry.  His debut film entitled Perduto Amor (Lost Love) has been recognized with the 2004 “Nastro D’Argento” critics prize for best directorial debut in Italy.
