Scanzonati is an exciting and original group that revisits some of the classic Italian pop songs of the past 30 years in an acoustic setting with sophisticated harmonies and arrangements. The project represents an incredibly rich and precious age of well-written Italian music infused with lyrical finesse. Gino Paoli, Fiorella Mannoia, Pino Daniele, and Domenico Modugno are only some of the most renowned and prestigious artists that the project pays the tribute to. The band combines charming and soulful vocal textures with talent and creativity, in a quest for discovering new sounds and atmospheres.
