Following the musical routes of the Mediterranean, the Neapolitans Massimo Di Lena and Lucio Aquilina return to Barcelona with their respected joint project, Nu Genea. The DJ and musician duo will present their third album, "Bar Mediterraneo" (2022), in concert on November 16 in live band format at Caprichos de Apolo.
Released by their label NG Records, this third album is an idea of a shared place where people meet and merge as at the table of the same bar; Naples becomes a space with open doors to travelers, their lives and cultures.
There are many influences from the Italian coast that have vertebrated this particular Bar Mediterraneo, from Syria to North Africa or Southern Europe. A meeting that has been shown through the collaborations with the Tunisian artist Marzouk Mejri in "Gelbi", and the French singer Célia Kameni in "Marechià".
Nu Genea's inspirational key comes from the research of dance music since its origins: following the musical routes of the world, they have collected the sonic echoes that over the centuries have touched the shores of their hometown and processed them into a groovy equation.
After the success of the album "The Tony Allen Experiments" (2015), came "Nuova Napoli" (NG Records, 2018), which made the duo known. A second work where disco, jazz-funk, African rhythms and synthesizers imbue the listener with a warm yet refreshing feeling: like pouring water on the skin that has been exposed to the sun.
Think of that musician that seems impossible to you that someday will come to play in Barcelona. Or think of that cult artist who doesn’t fit into any programming cycle. Or think about that special show of a large artist in small format. Well, all of this is Caprichos de Apolo.See More
