’90s Italian Singer/Songwriter Essentials
During the ‘90s a new wave of gifted singer/songwriters enhanced the Italian songbook by slickly hybridizing trends. Established figures, such as folkster Angelo Branduardi and gravelly voiced bad boy Vasco Rossi, made room for anthemic rocker Ligabue, lyrical alt-popster Max Gazze' and the electronic-fuelled Subsonica. Vinicio Capossela ventured into jazz and Latin in "Che Cossé L'amor” and Jovanotti embraced pop-rap in the life-affirming, funk-driven “Penso Positivo”. Alongside, Giorgia sweeps audiences away with R&B ballad “Strano Il Mio Destino”, powered by her all-consuming vocals.
