On Friday 24 June, at 8 p.m., the music festival conceived by Associazione Metarock, with the organisation of La Nunziatina and the contribution of Fondazione Pisa, returns to Pisa.
On the stage of the Pisa summer arena will be MADAUS, the ensemble born from the encounter of three musicians, Aurora Pacchi on vocals, Antonella Gualandri on percussion, and David Dainelli on guitar, joined by Mirco Capecchi on double bass, who share their artistic and professional path at the Academy of Music in Volterra. Right from the start, the strong presence of the former asylum and prison in Volterra, where David has been teaching music for years, and Aurora and Antonella's professional experiences in the field of mental health influence their way of making music, so much so that they decide to call themselves MADAUS, which recalls the English term 'madhouse', asylum.
The concert is a journey that started in New York with the colours of Mexico and the sounds of the Mediterranean, a journey that has not yet ended and that brings together traditional songs, new songs, roots and passion. The MADAUS, with the double bass of Mirco Capecchi, will take us inside stories and tales that speak of love, of sacrifice with their original sonority made up of essential arrangements that know how to get straight to the heart. An exciting and entertaining concert to savour note after note. It is in 2018 that MADAUS leave for New York, where they will take charge of the musical part of a sculpture symposium organised on Long Island. Their three-month trip will lay the groundwork for their latest work inspired by the figure of Frida Kahlo, with previously unreleased music by Chavela Vargas. They have also performed at major events outside their home country, gracing the stages of Holland, France, Germany and New York. In 2019 they record their third album 'Frida'.
