In the gray hours of the morning, between doubts and tiredness, the songs find their final form. The world is out of joint. Melodies and words search for the right place in the damaged areas of our hope.
Songs being considered for the next CD/LP the band is currently working on; Songs from the recently released solo live CD; Songs from the last 52 albums, carried by gentle and specific tones of guitars, trumpet, bass and accordion, piano and drums, play to dance in the unrepeatable hours of the concerts.
GLAD WE'RE ALIVE.
A clinging to elementary truths, despite all ideological divisions. Celebrating life as a victory against destructiveness, against wars and demagoguery. Music is a loyal companion.
