Le Ombre di Rosso: Unplugged on the Lower East Side @ Pianos NYC
A well-established Venitian folksinger and a scholar in literature to music, in his over 15 years’ experience as a multi-instrumentalist (vocal, guitar, banjo, and harmonica) Fantuzzi has played in several bands and joined countless music projects, recording folk-blues inspired albums. In recent years, together with the composer Andrea Alzetta, he founded the Italian band Le Ombre di Rosso, the release of whose first album “Momenti di Lucidità” (2016) was followed by a two years tour in Italy and southern Europe. Over the last few months, the same band has put to music a collection of poems written by the famous Italian-American poet Luciano Cecchinel. Named after the collection “Da sponda a sponda”, the resulting album will be published by Xanaxrecords in Spring 2018.
With his original style and groovy sound, the young Italian minstrel will please the audience with some of his old as well as recent songs, giving also a sneak preview of his latest work.
07:00, January 16, 2018. Pianos NYC, 158 Ludlow St, New York, NY 10002.

Our album has them talking:
“Something that is missing in the Italian music scene are good songwriters, although there is no lack of musicians approaching this genre, very few are able to produce really convincing and fruitful results, so if the rule is widespread mediocrity, as often happens every rule has an exception, it has a very valid exception in this case “.
Alba Chiara Re, “I Think Magazine”.
“Elegantly retro and genuinely folkloristic “Momenti di lucidità “turns out to be a valid visiting card for Le Ombre di Rosso, a convincing first album that shows notable technical and creative potentials. Not only storytelling ambitions but appreciable inclination towards the rediscovery and the recovery of harmonies tinged with past suggestions “.
Alessandro Freschi, «Distorsioni».
“They are all songs [“Hey vecchio pazzo”, “Ma che ne sai” and” L’ equilibrista”] that, in different measure, stick in those gypsy or Balkan flavors that nowadays have become more and more simple, tired, cliché, that here instead relive, authentic cultural heritage cultivated and wisely revived”.
