The group Roman folk rock, with its rough and intense sound, combining modernity and tradition in an authentic, timeless folk voice, is back with its fourth studio album. Il Muro del Canto offers an album that maintains its distinctive traits and, at the same time, introduces several new rhythmic and harmonic solutions. The search for a direct and real language continues, in which the strength of the Capitoline dialect, which has always nourished the band's strong roots, emerges clearly from the title in a passionate and stubborn declaration of intent.
My love does not die represents the intimate and personal resistance that does not give way to modern qualunquism and cynicism. The strength of love resists against division, the will for a social awakening resists against the great expanding void. The theme of time passing inexorably and taking youth and affection with it recurs frequently in the album. It is an album that openly takes the side of the last, of those who have no voice, strength or power to improve their conditions. A reflection full of memories and recollections of the 20th century.
The warm, deep voice and passionate lyrics are by Daniele Coccia Paifelman. The drums, percussion and narration are by Alessandro Pieravantiwho is also the performer and author of two songs on this disc; the acoustic guitar is that with the solid and distinctive rhythms of Eric Caldironi; on the bass the fantasy ofLudovico Lamarraaccordion gives voice to the timeless melodies of Alessandro Marinelliwho also sits behind the piano on this disc. An irreplaceable guest of the Roman sextet, Andrea Ruggieroon the violin. On the trumpet and trombone we find Davide di Pasquale.
