    We are delighted to re-publish an article by Stanislao Pugliese in memory of the renowned singer-songwriter Pino Daniele. Daniele passed away two years ago, but during the course of his career, he brilliantly combined rock, African-American blues, and Neapolitan music.
  • Pino Daniele - Napule è (Dal Film "Passione" di John Turturro)
    Analyzing the importance of Naples as a source of artistic inspiration, Turturro’s “Passione” is a remarkable case-study: the Italian-American director decided to embark on a journey of discovery of Naples’ music and musicality. From the “bel canto” tradition to the newest popular sounds, Turturro documents the immense cultural heritage of Neapolitan music, and does so by directly involving Neapolitan artists in the process. Among these artists is Pino Daniele. The sound of Naples permeates the musical DNA of Pino Daniele, from the debut album “Terra Mia” to the latest works. His songs echo Mediterranean vibrations, mixing the Neapolitan dialect’s peculiar musicality to influences from different genres. The result is a unique “world music” sound, his creative hallmark, also characterizing his latest record, “La Grande Madre,” released last March, about which Daniele will answer questions at Casa Italiana.

Its culture has not only been affected over time and influenced by Arab as well as African and European music, but also by the blues and American music.” Pino Daniele will be in New York (Apollo Theatre, June 7), Boston (Berklee Performance Center, June 9), and Washington, DC (Jazz Festival, June 10).

Italy in New York, New York in Italy. It's wonderful that the world has become so small that you can sit in the Apollo Theater singing Quando with 1000 Neapolitans and an African American usher greeting everyone with Buona Sera.
