The Apriti Cielo Tour saw his audience triple with 2 PalaLottomatica sold out in a few weeks and extra three nights each in Milan, Turin and Bologna.
New album V
Mannarino’s new album is an invitation to appeal to the ancestral wisdom of human beings. A record that speaks the languages of the world, steeped in forest sounds and indigenous voices recorded in the Amazon.
Mannarino goes in search of the tribal and atavistic source of humanity, proposed as the only and powerful contemporary antidote to the brutality of the inhuman.
Nature, patriarchy, animism, femininity, man-woman relationship, these are just some of the themes addressed by the singer-songwriter in the most political and visionary record of his career where love, the irrational and a magical sense of life become real tools for the decolonization of thought and human resistance.
