Deo torro, is the song with which they won the Parodi 2012. A text in Sardinian loosely based on a sonnet by Federico Garcia Lorca and a guitar accompaniment modal embroidering on which everything seems to float. Over twenty years off the island suspended between distant countries and world music productions and prestigious collaborations. The debut album of the duo Sassari Elva Lutza formed by Nico Casu (vocals, trumpet) and Gianluca Dessi (guitar, bouzouki) produced by S’Ardmusic is exactly like this: if you look more closely at what is the identity of ‘together we discover a network which links sounds deep and far between verve, humor and charisma. Jazz, folk, blues, music of Sardinia, Balkan, Neapolitan. The Sardinian however, is the language that dominates the track list of the work. A mother tongue that the two musicians always talk to their countries of origin. But I do not like to be labeled as “heirs of the tradition.” Injury in fact, and they are, the impression of being very free musically, a duo not “ethnic”, yes lover of tradition unencumbered by his own habitual circuits: a cross of light popular music that come together in a single color: warm , brilliant. “Music fireplace” – as claimed by the same Nico.
