The debut album of Neripè is born in “Ville lumiere” from the lucky encounter of pure souls and from the merger of more synthesized musical worlds in a single project. The songs sung by Neripè are composed duet with the singer and composer Stefano Piro and arranged from the eclectic sounds of Guappecartò, adopted Parisian ensemble with strong gypsy and Mediterranean influences.
The voice of intense and multifaceted Neripè leans on arrangements ranging in genres but that keep the typical sound of Guappecartò: violin, double bass, percussion, acoustic guitar, accordion. A sound between Mediterranean folk, which sometimes complete with piano played by Stefano Piro. Everything masterfully recorded and dressed in modernity by the sound enginer, Grammy Award, Laurent Dupuy.
The disc is intended as a journey through the music in the lives of great women of the past and present. Women who have left a legacy of enormous human wealth, artistic, political and moral, devoted with passion to what they believed and believe, important examples of freedom, courage and inner strength.
Nine pieces dedicated and inspired to Nine Great Women; each song tells a little nuance, a story of real life, rather than an imaginative transposition of reality, all this as poem in music.
