La fabbrica delle nuvole
The Factory of Clouds is a collection of songs crated from many moments with the guitar under the stars and scribbles under the candlelight. The eleven songs of the album begin to take shape in 2013 with the participation of many musician friends who over the years have been band mates, on stage and many sound experiences. The atmosphere changes and is in continuous transformation: the notes go along with the bucolic lyrics down a gentle path downbeat and upbeat; guitars, horns, strings, banjo, mandolin, tabla, accordion, bells, sitar, are just some of the instruments played … then the sounds of Nature: melodies that reveal the strong bond between the author, Livio Rabito and his homeland.
