How does the memory to be translated into a musical point of view?
All of us if we go to Cuba, for example, we are fascinated by the diversity and also recognize the melodic identity, then return to remember the rhythms.

What inspired me was a lullaby that my four year old son I dedicated one evening. It starts from a mine in the province of Caltanissetta, Italy and then up through the rhythms and traditions of Sicily, Calabria, Puglia and Campania. Meanwhile miners begins this metaphorical journey that starts from the dark, from a primordial place to which we are all related and that back in the important moments of life. Because we are born from the mystery that refers to the darkness, one of the most authentic landscapes, and from it every time we go to be reborn. And life, the sun, the hope is brought by tarante serenades and then return to soulful sounds in the closing piece.Vincenzo-de-Filippo_LandscapeBy composer and conductor.
