VIENTO is the title of the new album Flamenco Tango Neapolis: a "traveling music" that departs from Naples to the discovery of an "other" South, of its traditions, of its energy and of its emotions.
The music (original compositions and arrangements of Salvo Russo) represent the essence of a contamination that browses ancient pages with a new look, creating original sounds, fine sounds and respecting tradition always.
And 'so that "Femmena" becomes the muse that inspires Pasion flamenco, that "Viento" recreates the atmosphere of the Argentine milongas and that "Buleria napulitana" bursts with all the energy of a true "juerga flamenco".
The colors of Naples, therefore, mixed with those of Andalusia and South America explode musically creating intense atmospheres enriched on staged by the magic of baile flamenco and Argentine tango.
VIENTO is a picture colorful, romantic and suggestive that is revealed through art and music that captures the mind and heart of the listener on a journey to be experienced!
Flamenco Tango Neapolis is an exciting art project, founded in 2009 and directed by Salvo Russo (Neapolitan musician and composer), joining Italy, Spain and Argentina in a fascinating "musical trip."
The identity of the project is the Neapolitan Song, cradle of history, culture and traditions, that meeting the Flamenco and the Argentine tango, integrates them into an original contamination of styles that recognize Naples as "the Soul" that welcomes them, that blends them and with boldness sublimates them.
The ensemble consists of an acoustic quartet of multi-instrumentalists and musicians that includes: piano, percussion, cello, two guitars, violin, oud Arabic and two voices.
