Good morning to all my friends. In this period, the ‘summer brings around a lot of people doing more or less craft the musician. Everything would be wonderful, would concerts everywhere, no matter whether with cover or their original tracks, but there would be no life and want to leave.
Then unfortunately, the reality is different: festivals now shrunken and weary, resist the most fortunate and the most ” commercials ” , without aid municipalities and provinces, and a lot of money wasted in so many other things more or less useful.
And in the midst of all this, we find ourselves, especially professionals, to square our income, yes, because we’d only do art, but we also have bills to pay and a lot of taxes …
But I would not change my job for anything in the world …..
A hug to all and see you soon
PS: my new playground ….
Finally coming out for Montrecords2015, the first CD of the series Pan di Terre, where all the melodic parts are being handled by the new instruments in terracotta made by Terre di Lia, very similar to the hang drums, but in fact the category of lithophones. The new work is divided into nine tracks, for a duration of about 25 minutes. They are all small improvisations, prompting various rhythmic and melodic styles. He can be found at this link:
Summer is coming and, as always, this is a time that will give greater impetus to the activities live and new collaborations. I wanted to tell the first with TA ITALAKIA, Greek music ensemble, in which I will play my new Wambooka, then the first CD of SPANATORKESTRA, with songs reviewed and corrected in our own way. Other things are on the horizon …… See you soon !!!

A Big thank you to all those who hosted us, Valentina Bulzi and Minette del Treppo and all the participants. A big thank you to Mattorosso for giving space to a spectacle of dance and music in Italy is not quite so common. There remain many beautiful emotions of a journey made together with my “partner” ANGELICA Bressanin, with whom I share the project ANDERLUNE, the unorthodox lessons oriental music made by car, the ease of teaching of this man, who manages to make simple one tool such as the darbuka also to those who have not ever played. Thank you again and we hope that there is another “George Sadak Italian tour” as soon as …
