MANU CHAO MEETS KUSTURICA
"Standing ovation for the minstrel, activist, poet and musician Luca Bassanese. who slays austerity by summoning Trans-alpine fanfares and tarantellas in a grand Fellini operetta, in a style that is both musical and theatrical. For all ages and creeds." Festival Le Grand Soufflet, Brittany (France)
Luca Bassanese is part of the new generation of Italian folk singer-songwriters who look at today's world with irony and hope. His live performances are filled with fantasy, humor and good music. This combination of various art forms have gained Luca a large audience in Italy. In 2017, his concerts at Eurofonik (France) and Festival Dranouter (Belgium), Boulevard Theater (The Netherlands) have brought him standing ovations and the surnames of "Italian Kosturica" and "Italian Manu Chao".
Enlivened by the powerful folklore of the two shores of the Adriatic, Luca fans the embers of social engagement with tarantellas, klezmer hints of brass or heady gusts of Opera Buffa.
Multi-awarded (MEI 2015, Musicultura, Marcello Torre National Awards), Luca has collaborated with various artists from different backgrounds and countries. Among them, to make a few names, Stefano Florio, the Original Kocani Orkestar, Bachir Charaf, and Dario Fo.
Luca's show will put you in a good mood, make you want to dance, move your feet and lose yourself for a moment in a Fellini-inspired fantasy world.
