Novo intervistato da Matteo Arrigo TempoStretto

Ricordi, nostalgia, amore: la ballata per Messina del cantautore Novo

NOVO INTERVISTA

https://

Alessandro Capurro, in arte Novo, giovane cantautore messinese, una passione nata da bambino guardando lo zio suonare la chitarra, un lungo percorso che l’ha portato da qualche anno a cantare e comporre. Nel suo ultimo brano “Palluni ruccati”, racconta con amore nostalgico la sua città. Una canzone in dialetto che scopre in maniera poetica ed evocativa i valori e le tradizioni scomparse. “Non aviumu nenti ma ridiumu sempri” canta Alessandro, ricordando la sua infanzia, in parte vissuta fra le baracche di Camaro San Paolo, dove seppur in un contesto difficile, i valori della comunità erano forti e reali…
“Stiamo perdendo la socialità” – racconta Alessandro – “Credo che una città abbia bisogno di spazi, è da lì che nasce l’aggregazione, l’arte. Quella che Messina sta vivendo è un’occasione unica, lo sbaraccamento deve servire alla città per avere nuovi stimoli, per recuperare spazi e identità.””

ENGLISH TRANSLATION

Alessandro Capurro, aka Novo, a young singer-songwriter from Messina, a passion born as a child watching his uncle play the guitar, a long journey that has led him to sing and compose for some years. In his latest song “Palluni ruccati” , he tells his city with nostalgic love. A song in dialect that discovers the values ​​and traditions that have disappeared in a poetic and evocative way. “Non aviumu nenti but ridiumu sempri” sings Alessandro, recalling his childhood, partly lived in the barracks of Camaro San Paolo, where, albeit in a difficult context, the values ​​of the community were strong and real.

“We are losing sociality” – Alessandro says – “I believe that a city needs space, that’s where aggregation, art comes from. What Messina is experiencing is a unique opportunity, the clearing must serve the city to have new stimuli, to recover spaces and identity. “

The piece saw a prestigious collaboration, the choirs were interpreted by Mario Incudine. The arrangements are by Dario Lisitano, who also deserves credit, explains Alessandro, for having directed him on the right musical path. The musicians: Fabrizio Marcellino on guitar and Novo himself, Santino Merrino on percussion.

The video clip of the song was directed by Alessando Capurro and Carlotta Ingemi. The shots were all shot in characteristic places of the city, from the north coast to the village of Pezzolo, and were made by Carlotta Ingemi, Giuseppe Spuria and on the drone by Marco Gismondo.

The appointment not to be missed to listen to Novo live is for August 5th, the singer-songwriter will open the concert by Eugenio Bennato and Mario Incudine. His notes will resonate in the arena of Villa Dante, a place frequented as a child with skinned knees, and which he now finds again as a protagonist.
