Yesterday as today the poet embarks, poetry belongs.
Ermanno Panta is a composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist originally from Sicily (Italy) with deep respect for Sicilian music, flamenco and jazz. His tours and musical studies all around the world provide the inspiration for the eclectic repertoire of Isla Musa, the band’s first album which was released on 6 June 2019 (Narrator Records), with the support of Institut d’Estudis Baleàrics (IEB). Lyrics in Spanish, Catalan, Sicilian and Arabic offer a symbolic commitment to diversity. Trance, joy and modern taste coexist both in the album and in the band’s live concerts. These are the sounds and flavors the listener may recognize in ‘Isla Musa’ album.
