"Travels and music have always been very important to me: discovering new places and cultures nourishes the soul, and music helped me a lot to get in touch with people and share great experiences. I had the big luck of crossing paths with amazing musicians and beautiful friends.
Apart from playing guitar I am intrigued by many “ethnic” instrument and enjoy playing a few ones, and I’ve almost accidentally started to produce music.
In recent years technology made it very easy to make high quality recording almost in any place, with just a microphone and a computer, and I got used to all the mixing, editing and stuff related with music production.
These are the main factors that led me to the idea of “Kalibé”: a kind of imaginary musical society, a container for the music I produce that is not focused on the guitar and it's filled with collaborations. Main partner in crime in this idea, is Ermanno Panta.
Songs are mostly written in cooperation with the people who are participating at that specific recording. Often I record many fragments and then edit them: at times it feels like having many pieces of a puzzle and trying to find the picture they belong to. More often the “picture” is there from the beginning, and the magic is the surprise I feel when I see it changing at any new collaboration."
