D' Amore E Di Altre Cose Irreversibili


The first album by Italian singer Flo mixes Latin influences, French chanson, her Italian roots with folk and touch of pop. One of the most eclectic and versatile artists on the new Italian musical scene, Flo is the singer to watch. Influenced by Billie Holiday, Elis Regina, Amalia Rodriguez and Cesaria Evora, as well as Cesare Pavese, Pablo Neruda and Frida Kahlo, Neapolitan Flo (Floriana Cangiano) has been very active on the Italian and European music scene for several years. She's worked with Italian saxophonist Daniele Sepe, performed at many festivals across Italy and Europe and has recently won the prestigious Italian Musicultura 2014 Prize, sharing the stage with the likes of Dulce Pontes and Gino Paoli (the concert is scheduled to be broadcast by Italian national channel Rai 5 in August 2014). D'amore e di altre cose irreversibili is her debut album. It was written over one summer in a small house by the sea, mostly at night when every small noise becomes louder and the border between memories and desires gets blurred. Flo has always been attracted to the little things that make up life, and has always written poetry, tales, songs, things not to forget. Her first album condenses these two influences, showcasing a versatile universe soaked up in the Mediterranean light. "I have always wanted my first album to have a passion-driven, pulsating flavour, just like an old letter coming from a distant land that would talk about the taste of forgotten experiences." Reflecting on the sound of the album she adds, "I was looking for a sound from an imaginary south, like Garcia Marquez's Macondo, a sort of ideal place". The song Ca ne tient pas la route is the first track the group recorded. "It's a song that sounds just like me" Flo notes. It has a great pop feel to it a la Pink Martini and shows the range in Flo's voice. O Ponto mais a su" is an echo of Lisboa's fado and the poet Pessoa's poetry, while the title Meu tempo melhor" is influenced by Cabo Verde's atmosphere. In amongst the songs Flo wrote she's included two covers that have a special meaning for her: Pirati a Palermo, is a heart-rending poem by the Sicilian poet Ignazio Buttitta, put to music by Rosa Balistreri in the 60s, and Presentimento is a traditional Neapolitan song written by E. A. Mario from the early 20th century as an homage to her city Napoli. All these influences make for a fresh and perfectly balanced album, a mix of modern and traditional, showcasing Flo's talents both as a songwriter and a singer.
