Italian troubadour and Calabrian cantautore Peppe Voltarelli returns to the US for a pair of concerts on April 6th in Chicago and April 9th in New York City

Mar 31, 2014 2369

The first North American appearances of the year for the singer-songwriter/actor, these performances mark the release of Voltarelli's new studio album "Lamentarsi come ipotesi" (To Complain as Hypothesis) and follow his critically acclaimed two-night stand at last summer's Montreal Jazz Festival.

The album provides a metaphoric soundtrack to a Southern Italian way of life where a culture of complaints becomes a source of pleasure, empowering people to reach into their ancient roots to overcome the challenges of modern life.

Throughout Voltarelli takes the listener on a cinematic journey to a unique crossroad of traditional Italian song where Spaghetti Western meets Gypsy and Klezmer intersects with Balkan beats.

Voltarelli is accompanied on Lamentarsi by a number of distinguished guest musicians including Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino's Mauro Durante, with whom he performed at Joe's Pub in 2013, and Grammy-nominated Argentine-American singer-songwriter and guitarist Kevin Johansen.
