The 20th of april there was a beautiful concert here in Roma (Galoppatoio di Villa Borghese), celebrating the Earth Day.
It started with some italian artists, amongst them I liked Roberto Angelini.
While we was waiting for the wonderful Patti Smith, a nice surprise: a videomessage from Peter Gabriel!
I was very happy :-)
When Patti Smith arrived, it was great. She is a living legend! And she sang some from her most known songs, with a great energy:
Pissing in a river
Because the night
People have the power
Then Carmen Consoli, that I love very much, with several musicians and a string quartet. So many beautiful songs! All started with a deep sound: the simulation of an atomic bomb explosion about 80 km from here.
Then a song: Eco di Sirene
Then Madre Terra, a 'virtual' duet with Angelique Kidjo in video, it was very moving to me.
I remember also Fiori d'Arancio, and a song in sicilian dialect.
Carmen was very funny and deep at the same time.
In Bianco e Nero, Guarda l'Alba, AAA Cercasi
Amore di Plastica
A very beautiful concert! Great!!!
