Elodie in concert in Milan: “War takes away freedom, culture makes you free”


Pop is culture, Pop is freedom, Pop is taking care of health, Pop is Crazy MusicPop is Elodie. The Roman artist, or rather the popstars Italian, accompanied her people on a journey lasting over an hour and a half which was indeed a celebration but also an eye on a world in which, in certain moments, Elodie it is not found. The difference lies in the fact that she wants to change this limping universe and to do so she not only puts her voice but also her face. In her lyrics there are profound meta-messages, on the screen that behind her depicts her music appear messages that tighten her heart. Two of her personal battles are most important at this moment. And it is right and proper, given that in concerts the social aspect usually borders on demagogy, to decline these two moments in full, because here there is only participation. Or rather, participation is requested. Chapter one concerns the conflicts that are devastating the world and their relationship with culture, with schooling: “War takes away freedom. Over 449 million children live in conflict zones. Gender cannot determine a person’s freedom, but 29.9 million adolescent girls live in the 10 countries with the highest number of child marriages. Culture makes you free, but in the world 244 million children and young people do not go to school and 771 million adults are illiterate. Everyone should be free to choose whether to live and build a future in their own land, yet it is estimated that in 2023 there will be 108.4 million forced migrants. ELLE. LIKE MY FREEDOM”. The second chapter talks about health and the support of Elodie to (RED): “Every week, 4,000 adolescent girls and young women contract HIV. Of these infections, nearly 80 percent occur in sub-Saharan Africa. (RED)’s mission is to end this injustice and make treatments for preventable diseases accessible to all. To date (RED) has generated more than $750 million for the Global Fund, one of the world’s largest funders of global health, helping more than 245 million people.” And if there are still those who say that Pop is light, well let’s think deeply.

SUPER GUEST MARCO MENGONI, TRIBUTE TO RAFFAELLA CARRA’

Purple in the Sky lights up the party. We begin on the island built in the center of the Forum. You breathe techno-dance for a few minutes then the combo breaks out Guarana/Black Bali who accompanies her on the main stage where the veil that masks the stage opens in front of images of sculptural pectorals that ignite the panting and at the same time the bpm further rises: an explosion of drums makes it clear that it is the moment of Okay. Breathe: Elodie, who will change four looks throughout the evening, all by Atelier Versace, is at the top of a staircase, like an Inca goddess. She goes down the stairs with the same love told in this panic love song. “Thank you for being here tonight I still can’t believe it” he whispers and then introduces Andromeda: another shot of energy that then slides into the romanticism of Vertigo, accompanied by psychedelic and lysergic images. After the beautiful sense of vertigo comes, in red hues, American Woman, an elegiac song, an embroidery of rhythm and blues and gospel: in spite of those who say that Elodie does not have a powerful voice. The look is reminiscent of the 1930s, a contemporary Charleston that she faces with Star Wars glasses and slave sandals. She sits on the stairs to Think bad and shows off one of her irresistible smiles which is a bit of an excuse to go back to her even if you think badly! Headlights Off it is filmic with the alternation of images of her on stage and in the video, where she seduces with a white tank top and unleashes adrenaline while jogging through the streets of Milan. The forum gone crazy, every leg swings. Red Light is introduced by the message on war, migrants and schooling and when the writing appears “and now dance with me” it is clear that the party at that moment has a bitter taste “a thorn in my side”. It is the confirmation that Elodie is light only for those who do not insinuate themselves in her lyrics because even the world Glamour painted vermilion is a social challenge. Which is not attenuated by the pool dance moment where he demonstrates crazy athleticism, among Euphoria And Ascendingclosed at high altitude and with a message of universal love accompanied by the invitation to support (RED) and his campaigns. It’s time for a white look for Never again, sparkling moments and that red veil which today has an even more special value. The natural instinct of Tribal makes even the die-hards of comfort stand up…the tribal of Elodie it is neither a word nor a dance, it is a state of the soul. At the end it ideally joins with You Begin Making Love: it’s Elodie’s tribute to Raffaella Carràit’s touching Hi Raffa. Two she’s back on the cube but this alone, without her wonderful dance troupe, and the tears are neither mine nor yours but those of the entire Forum. The ending is introduced by a surprise: she appears on stage, alongside Elodie, Marco Mengoni: together they do Crazy Music And No Stress. The party ends with Margarita and Bath to Midnight. And I’m sure that, once back home, many will have given themselves both as gifts. We are all…ascending Elodie!
