Immerse yourself in a unique concert experience at the Gombo Beach, located within the San Rossore Natural Park. Paolo Angeli, with his remarkable prepared Sardinian guitar, will create captivating musical layers. This one-of-a-kind instrument combines an orchestra of strings that stretch in all directions, motorized propellers, and hammers controlled by pedals to produce mesmerizing drones and sparkling bass lines. With his bow, pick, fingers, and vibrating strings, Paolo weaves intricate rhythmic atmospheres, even incorporating the sound of a crumpled plastic bag. His live performance is enhanced by electronic effects, creating an unforgettable sonic experience. Notably, Paolo has performed to a sold-out crowd at Carnegie Hall in New York and has collaborated with renowned artists such as Pat Metheny, for whom he custom-built a guitar, as well as Fred Frith, Hamid Drake, and Louis Sclavis.
“Rade” represents Paolo Angeli’s twelfth solo album and fourteenth overall, produced in collaboration with ReR Megacorp and AnMa productions. This unexpected arrival follows the critical acclaim of his previous album, “Jar’a,” which explored the ancestral aspects of Sardinian music. “Rade” takes a different artistic direction, embracing the diverse Mediterranean influences that connect us through a maritime journey. The concept album beautifully combines Paolo’s orchestral guitar mastery, pushing the boundaries of expressive tonal possibilities, with the nasal and flavorful Sardinian-Iberian vocals. The lyrics draw from the poetic quatrains of 18th and 19th-century Gallurese and Logudorese poets, adding a rich narrative layer to the mesmerizing musical tapestry.
Please note that admission to the concert is free, but reservations are required. To reserve your spot, don’t hesitate to call the San Rossore Visitor Center at the provided number during the specified hours.
