Les samedis du monde - ICI Radio-CANADA 2018
11-minute piece about Newpoli and the new album 'Mediterraneo' on Radio-Canada.
Translated from French:
"What I like with Newpoli members is that even though they first played music from southern Italy, they rapidly expanded the repertoire to other nearby genres, because the Sea is a meeting point, not the Land....Instruments for instance from North Africa, from Greece- it creates a unique blueprint / sound signature....We live in a time when human beings are perhaps willing to stay and not move, to close themselves. We feel we want to be stable and not change anything.
However, the World is the opposite. With Newpoli, there is no human nationalism. It is about going toward the Other, through a sense of family, a will to get to know the Other...
