Da lontano... (l'Empreinte Digitale)
bennato returns on this 2005 release by one of Italy's best-known roots innovators. The band is excellent: Bennato on vocals, mandola and classical guitar with Erasmo Petringa, cello, lute, mandolincello and guitar; M'barka Bentaleb, vocals and percussions; Zaina Chabane, vocals; Roberto Menonna, guitare battente and vocals. But the results are sporadic, sometimes quite charming, sometimes a bit soft on the edges. This doesn't really measure up to some of his earlier releases, but for his fans, it's a logical and interesting extension of the Taranta Power legend.
Io te cerco scus
Ch'il Mediterraneo sia
Popolo di Tammuriata
Ninna-nanna di Carpino
Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
