A great translation work of Brazilian songs from Portuguese to Neapolitan, made alongside the authors, finally becomes an album recorded between Rome and Paris, Which will be released in May.
"Core / Coração” is the new album of Maria Pia De Vito. It’sbeen recorded between Rome and Paris and will be released in May with the label Jando Music in collaboration with Via Veneto Jazz. A new record fatigue, very much felt and and intensely transcultural; the title clearly indicates a work of the heart which candle was lighted by the encounter with the Brazilian composer and guitarist Guinda and the following poetic meeting with Chico Buarque, guest in two pieces of the record:"Todo sentimento" and "O Meu Guri" (the second a duet in Neapolitan).
A Translation paper work from Portuguese to Neapolitan, done side by side with the authors, in particular with Chico, to preserve intact the beauty, poetry and musicality of the original texts made in Neapolitan language, a formidable musical, lyric, Rhythmic and visionary instrumental the same time. In this metamorphic vision, just like a deep dive into the Brazilian songwriting world, Neapolitan dances meet the Brazilian ones, the visionary samba of Tom Zèmeets a Tammurriata and together frame the Chico Buarque masterpiece "Construção"; "Agua and Vinho" by Egberto Gismonti blends to "Voce ‘e notte", a wonderful example of the great Neapolitan melodic tradition.
