Friday, July 16, 2021 -ore 21.30 for the Villa Olmo Festival is organized the show "Margherita Vicario, Selton + More".
Margherita Vicario is on tour after the publication of her new album, Bingo (Island Records), released in May. 14 tracks that narrate the imaginative and engaging world of one of the most versatile artists of the current music scene, arrived at the end of a journey that lasted two years. Written between Rome and Turin by the singer-songwriter, Bingo is a fantastic journey in technicolor, a project that scrutinizes and reads the present in a bold and never trivial, composed with the proud desire to get to the root of the emotions narrated.
The new album Benvenuti marked the return of Selton, the most beloved Italian-Brazilian band in Italy, four years after their previous work (Manifesto Tropicale). The result of two years of travels, stories and collaborations, "Benvenuti - say Selton - is the name of our new album released in April. A very high jump, a very long journey. Welcome for us is having the courage to accept the evolution of things. In a time of uncertainty, where the truth seems to be always surrounded by doubts, conservative ideals come back into fashion and words like "tradition" and "identity" become a kind of shield to not see the other, forgetting that these are constantly changing concepts."
The release of the album was accompanied and anticipated by the sit-com Benvenuti a casa mia (Welcome to my home), entirely written by Selton and directed by Francesco Mandelli, aired as a preview on Deejay Tv, and now available on the band's Youtube channel. Six episodes, with each episode dedicated to a song from the Benvenuti album, alternating hilarious sketches with questions posed to famous and lesser-known guests, as well as special live performances of the song that was the protagonist of each episode. Many guests took turns: MyssKeta, Nicola Savino, Alberto dello Stato Sociale, Federico Russo, Margherita Vicario, Dente, Rodrigo D'Erasmo, Francesco Mandelli himself and many others.
