2010s Cantautori Italiani Essentials

As genres and generations mix, intriguing amalgams take shape in '00s Italian pop. Rebel folk rockers Marta Sui Tubi went from being Bologna bar favourites to collaborating with veteran singer/songwriter Lucio Dalla, who lends his expressive vocals and clarinet to a beautifully nuanced reading of “Cromatica”. Meanwhile, indie songster Brunori Sas wittily sings about the end of youthful idealism in “Mambo reazionario”, and Milan-based Brazilians Selton lend a balmy tropical vibe to bittersweet pop ode “Cuoricinici”, aptly displaying the outward-looking melodiousness of the local scene.
