Nuova Musica Italiana!
Il Punto è entusiasta di annunciare un nuovo programma di musica italiana. L’obiettivo è quello di diffondere la cultura italiana contemporanea e far conoscere al pubblico americano, e non solo, artisti di grande valore che non hanno la notorietá che meriterebbero a livello internazionale. Le serate saranno un’occasione per conoscere l’Italia moderna fuori dagli stereotipi musicali a cui è associate. Per gli Italiani, sará un modo di ricordare canzoni dimenticate o scoprire nuovi artisti.
Per questo motivo, le canzoni saranno cantate in Italiano ma saranno introdotte in inglese, e al pubblico verrá fornito un biosketch dell’artista in inglese, insieme alle traduzioni dei testi.
Le serate di Nuova Musica Italiana saranno monografiche. Ogni serata sarà caratterizzata dalla musica di un artista o di un gruppo, eseguita dal vivo dalla locale band italiana degli Space Noodles. Maggiori informazioni.
Il Punto is thrilled to announce a new Italian music program. The goal is to promote contemporary Italian culture and pay tribute to some excellent artists who do not have the notoriety they deserve internationally. The shows will be an opportunity for non Italians to learn about modern Italy outside the musical stereotypes it is associated with. For Italians, it will be a way to remember forgotten songs, or to discover new artists.
All the songs will be sung in Italian but will be introduced in English; the public will be provided with a biosketch of the artist in English, along with translations of the lyrics.
The evenings of Nuova Musica Italiana will be monographic. Each evening will be characterized by the music of an artist or a group, performed live by the local Italian band “Space Noodles”. More Information.
