Bari: Going back to move forward

It is commonly said that the past has passed and what happened then should stay there. But whether we like it or not, the present and the future, are affected by the past. With these thoughts in mind, as 2024 began I decided that to go forward I would have to go back to a place that opened my horizons in music and gave me nothing but joy and fulfilment: Bari, a coastal city in Puglia, in Southern Italy, where I recorded my first 2 albums "Mulheres" and "Menescantando", more than a decade ago.


And so I did! I went back to Bari in February and reconnected with long lost friends from the past in order to move forward with renewed energy. That's how the “Bari sessions” were born! The first recording session took place on the 16th of February 2024 with an amazing crew of Italian musician friends with whom I had lost touch and who love Brazilian music as much as I do: (from left to right in the photo) Marco Giuliani on guitar, Fabio Delle Foglie on drums, Bruno Montrone on piano and Nico Catacchio on double bass.


In the end it's true that some things from the past have no more place in the present (let alone the future!) but renewed friendship, good music and good vibes are always worth going back to, making the present and the future so much brighter!!!


Check out the video of the 1st session with the song "Nós os foliões" (by Sidney Miller) recorded at MAST Recording studio led by Massimo Stano (an outstanding sound engineer by the way!) and stay tuned!! I'll be back in Bari in May for the next session...
