Hello everybody,

let me introduce myself:

I am Emanuele Ammendola, from Somma Vesuviana, in the province of Neaples.

I play double bass and sing.

It is months I've been working to the release of my new album "MIGRA’"and I am looking for a label or simply a booking, management for my project and my new album.

The album is a concept album on one of the most debated topics at the moment: the condition of migrants seen through the eyes of the different characters in the songs.
It is Mediterranean pop, acustic, ispired to jazz and folk music of my place, Vesuvius(Naples).
8 tracks, seven songs of which are sung in Neapolitan dialect and an instrumental piece.

The album,even before its release, has positioned itself among the:

- semifinalist at the national competition " Musicultura 2016";


- Award “Mia Martini 2016” for entire “Migrà” Album.

- Award “Fest Med 2016” for best unpublished song with “Nun Cagna Maie”(track n 2). This song is ispired to an ancient folk music played and danced on the slopes of Vesuvius, near Naples.

- Award “Ugo Calise Festival 2016” for best unpublished song with “Rosa ‘e miez a via”(Track n 5).

Actually I’m in semifinal at National award De Andrè 2016 with “Saglie” (track n 1) and also at final at Nano Festival 2016. You can look all about this awards at my event page in my womex profile.
