From Saturday 6 to Wednesday 10 August in the Pescara Tourist Port Area the Zoo Music Fest is on stage: independent music, rap and new trends in a single billboard featuring Caparezza, Marracash, Psychologists and Cosmo. “I can’t wait to show the public the large amount of work that will be in this show – says Caparezza who kicks off the show on August 6 at 21 – As always happens for my lives, I have a truly incredible deployment of forces, there are set designers, costume designers, performers who are working to create a show that is also worth seeing, not just hearing “.
The concerts of Caparezza, on the other hand, have always been a way to tell the albums and tell about oneself, not only an opportunity to recreate on a stage what happens in the studio but also the possibility of creating a narrative thread along which to better explain certain passages, certain ideas. If on the stage next to Caparezza there will be the band formed by Rino Corrieri (drums), Giovanni Astorino (bass), Alfredo Ferrero (guitar), Gaetano Camporeale (keyboards) and Diego Perrone (vocals), the work behind the scenes is not to be done. less and bears the signature of great professionals such as Francesco Aiello (sound engineer), Miki Giove (sound engineer) and Bull (light designer), of the team that oversaw the sets formed by Deni Bianco (papier-mâché objects), Igor Ronchesi / Tekset (props and backdrops), Maki (ledwall) and Tommaso Gianfreda (props), by the costume designer Rosalba Patruno, by the performer and choreographer Pasqualino Beltempo and by the performers Cristina Siciliano, Brian Boccuni and Mariangela Aruanno. “I owe a lot to live activity – underlined Caparezza – I have always focused much more on concerts than on other types of exhibitions and I believe that in the long run, after 20 years of music, this choice has paid off”.
On Sunday 7 August it will be Marracash’s turn, again at 9 pm. With an unprecedented sales success in Italian rap, his tour, one of the most anticipated in recent years, started on 12 July. Marracash brings his great successes and, above all, his last two record albums, ‘Persona’ and ‘Noi, Loro, Gli Altri’, live to the most important indoor and outdoor stages throughout Italy. Albums that never stop collecting certifications and guarding the highest positions of all the charts.
