“Cicada”, their fourth and new album, has been produced by Angelo Scogno, published by MRM APPALOOSA and distributed by IRD, it’s an elegant journey and a complete art project, an exiting music experiment: from blues to folk to americana including a traditional southern italian marching band. Every cd cover is a unique piece.
“Things never happen by chance, but perhaps, so many do that we can only see what is revealed by the experience of a moment”.
These are the first words of the introduction to “Cicada”, the fourth album from Dago Red. A work full of colours and influences in which the sounds touch many genres but the style remains unique; stories, characters and symbols are revealed little by little the more you listen to the unfolding narrative. These include the sounds of a traditional Abruzzo marching band (a true love statement to Dago Red’s homeplace), African rhythms, folk’n blues, roots, Americana and ethnic sounds, that live together in perfect equilibrium.
Every CD cover is unique thanks to the hand-painted artwork devoted to each and every copy. Get on board for this musical trip of a lifetime!
