Regular readers of giornaledibarganews will without a doubt remember a series of articles last summer which documented the incredible rise of a tiny piece of music produced here in Barga which then went on to what could be best described as musical world domination.
What started with some heavy radio play on Italian national radio then went onto the world DJ charts entering the top 10 and has now been seen on YouTube and other Internet video sites are staggering total of more than 5 million times. We are of course talking about Andrea Guzzoletti and his collaboration with Federico Scavo and the piece of music known as STRUMP.
As you can hear in the interview rerecorded with Andrea last month ( in Italiano) the latest disc to come out of his production company, Even Eight Records, is just about to hit the streets. This time it is his own production and as you can hear halfway through the interview when he played a brief passage it could very well be named “Strump II la vendetta” as this to its going to be impossible not to dance to once it enters people’s heads. The actual title “Bulgarija” also gives some idea of the influences on this piece of music.
Once again it is expected to be heard around the world in most of the major clubs, helped along as this time Bulgarija will be part of the very, very successful label, Dance and Love ( their site is here)
Andrea also went on to say in that interview, that on Sunday, 3rd June they would be filming the video for the new Bulgarija song right here in the Comune of Barga - up at Sommocolonia to be absolutely precise.
The concept behind the video was very simple. The last video for strump heavily featured what Andrea termed as “glamour” This time he wanted to show that music is accessible and enjoyed by all irrespective of age or looks. There was a slight retro feel to the video with the actors taking part in what is effectively a country fair during the 70s or early 80s.
This afternoon that video was finally released and can be seen below
ANDREA GUZZOLETTI FEAT. RENEE LA BULGARA, CLAUDE, CHRISTIAN PELLICCI – Bulgarija
After the international success of STRUMP! with Federico Scavo, the new single of the trumpet player Andrea Guzzoletti Feat. Renèe La Bulgara and the djs Claude e Christian Pellicci is out on Dance And Love.
Once again Andrea Guzzoletti proposes a trumpet song, this time in an ethnical atmosphere – a way to rediscover the tradition of the folk bands that have a lot in common with today’s music.
