"When Manu Chao and Goran Bregovic meet with Fellini"
Singer-songwriter Luca Bassanese from Italy is a socially-engaged artist with twelve albums and various awards under his belt.
During the lockdown, Luca decided to go live every day to meet his fans and followers and give them some comfort. Within three months, Luca had already grown his fanbase by thousands - from 30 000 to more than 80 000 on FB. Luca was also able to collect enough money to produce the album "Piazza Bassanese" that he distributed exclusively to his followers.
Luca's shows, in a trio, quartet, or with his band La Piccola Orchestra Popolare are festive, explosive, theatrical, and full of positive energy.
"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.''
A highlight of some European festivals like Paleo or Sziget, Luca will be available all year round in Europe in 2021/22.
