Sacri Cuori @ Rotondes, 21 Januar 2016


Sacri Cuori have created a stunning cinematic oeuvre over their own records and in the meantime they have also been chosen as a live&studio band by: Richard Buckner, Howe Gelb, Dan Stuart (Green on Red), Hugo Race, Robyn Hitchcock, Woody Jackson, and many others. They tour worldwide, including Australia and eastern Europe, appearing in several Festivals and crossing the border of nations and genres.

What about their music? Let’s call it Adriatic Twang, somewhere between old time dance music from their native Romagna and Lynch’s Mulholland drive, between the dream of the ’50s and the nightmares of the future, Santo & Johnny and Brian Eno. And a lot of Italy’s taste for soundtracks on top of it all. Of course Ennio Morricone and Nino Rota are present, but it’s also about Riz Ortolani, Piero Piccioni, Piero Umiliani, Armando Trovajoli and several other maestros of the golden age.

Their third record, Delone, has been released on Glitterbeat Records in May 2015, featuring all the enlarged family, with special contributions by Evan Lurie, Marc Ribot, Steve Shelley, Howe Gelb, Dan Stuart, Hugo Race, Sonido Gallo Negro and several others. It features the great voice of Australian/Italian diva Carla Lippis on several songs and also an appearance of Emmanuelle Sigal.
