Giuliano Gabriele will unveil his new album “Basta!” on its release February 23, 2024, on Coming MusicArt / InOuïe Distribution. This new work will be presented live on stage on Thursday March 21, 2024 at Studio de L’Ermitage (Paris).

Cathartic rhythms from the South of Italy, in a dissident album with an emblematic title. Basta! tells of individuals in movement, ideally or unconsciously free, imprisoned in “contemporary systems”, where all the frustrations and fears live. Traditional cadences intertwine with current mixes between Mediterranean and world music.

The album is produced by the eclectic Martin Meissonnier (Fela Kuti, Khaled, Alan Stivell, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, Manu Dibango, Papa Wemba, Tony Allen…).

On this album Giuliano Gabriele (voice – diatonic accordion) is accompanied by:

  • Lucia Cremonesi: Viola – Calabrian Lyre
  • Eduardo Vessella: Tambourine
  • Gianfranco De Lisi: Electric bass
  • Riccardo Bianchi: Drums
  • Carmine Scialla: Bouzouki – Battente Guitar
  • Giovanni Aquino: Electric Guitar – Synth
  • Gianmarco Gabriele: Programming
  • Martin Meissonnier: Programming
