PALAZZO TRINCI - SATURDAY 14 OCTOBER 2017 - 09.00 p.m.
The second guest will be Cesare Basile. The sound of his album “u fujutu su nesci chi fa” creates an original musical flow: it is a Mediterranean mantra made up of blues and African music, hypnotic songs often consisting of a single chord, vocal polyphonies and female counterparts, obsessive percussive polyrhythms.
“U Fujutu” is the idiot of Sicilian tarot cards. He is in the centre of the image on the cover, or evoked by the title of the album, not an obscure presence at all, standing in the middle of the eternal struggle between good and evil. An archetype of memory and archaic tradition, an upstream evocation in an era in which rationality is strongly recommended. According to Cesare Basile, U Fujutu is a circle that remains open, the card to be drawn to talk about Sicily and Catania.
