After “A Mandolin Journey”, a musical tour through the continents, the Carlo Aonzo Trio  (Carlo Aonzo on the Italian mandolin, Lorenzo Piccone on the acoustic guitar and Luciano Puppo on the double bass) is back, this time travelling along the Italian tradition to rediscover its peculiar soundtrack.
 
Once again, the main character is the mandolin which, in the personal unique modern and eclectic style of Aonzo, makes this repertoire surprisingly catchy and contemporary.
 
From Raffaele Calace to Domenico Modugno, passing through the Italian regions and the best Bel Paese song tradition, “Mandolitaly” breaks apart and casts a new light on the Italian music heritage: from the internationally known “Arrivederci Roma” and “Roma nun fa’ la stupida stasera” to the great historical fathers of mandolin as Carlo Munier for a taste of the classical repertoire. All revisited and rearranged in the charming Trio style in a melting pot of musical genres. And so “Volare” (“Nel blu dipinto di blu”) is mixed together with Jamaican reggae music, South American rhythms creating an intimate romantic atmosphere, while John Coltrane is imagined “tarantelling” in the streets of Naples...
