A Translation paper work from Portuguese to Neapolitan, done side by side with the authors, in particular with Chico, to preserve intact the beauty, poetry and musicality of the original texts made in Neapolitan language, a formidable musical, lyric, Rhythmic and visionary instrumental the same time. In this metamorphic vision, just like a deep dive into the Brazilian songwriting world, Neapolitan dances meet the Brazilian ones, the visionary samba of Tom Zè meets a Tammurriata and together frame the Chico Buarque masterpiece “Construção”; “Agua and Vinho” by Egberto Gismonti blends to “Voce ‘e note”, a wonderful example of the great Neapolitan melodic tradition.
Along with Maria Pia there are great musicians and long time companions, instrument virtuosos with a deep sense of interplay, bearers of intimacy and feeling which only the common and long staging of stages allows: Welsh pianist Huw Warren, who recorded two Albums – “Dialektos” and “O Pata Pata”- with her. The virtuoso clarinetist Gabriele Mirabassi with his classical and jazz style who has been linked for many years to Brazilian music and culture; The Brazilian guitarist Roberto Taufic, author of many arrangements and musician of extraordinary sensibility; Roberto Rossi, a peculiarly creative and unconventional percussionist.
