De Giovanni: Anima del Tempo / Floriana Ferrante
The leitmotif of this release is time, especially the inner time of emotions and feelings, which only art can express: the time of a story reverberating in the lights of a metropolis, the time of a cigarette extinguished on the asphalt, but also the time of dreams and love... In short, the time of a life lived, recounted in its most intimate and changing meanings, the time of Dasein. The result is a multiform necklace of small pearls, marked by a musical eclecticism that gives it unquestionable added value.
